Linkin Park, for me, is one of the few bands that keeps music exciting to me. I can go into each new release with no expectations, and see what journey the guys take me on next.
When I first listened to One More Light, it was through headphones, in the car with my dad, on our way up north to go camping. Though, it wasn’t much of a first-listen, because my dad also had loud music playing in the car. I enjoyed what I heard, though.
Until we returned home, and I had the chance to properly listen to it with no distractions, and I loved it.
It’s a hauntingly beautiful tribute to Chester’s final body of work, and some of the best vocals he’s ever delivered.
