    Amazon has just updated their page about One More Light with the album length, revealed to be 35:19.
    In addition to this, iTunes has added all track lengths, and as we can see One More Light is the longest at 4:15 and Heavy (feat. Kiiara) is the shortest at 2:49

    [​IMG]

    This now joins Hybrid Theory [37:51], Meteora [36:39], and LIVING THINGS [37:05] as among the shorter Linkin Park albums and in fact making it the shortest album that the band has put out to date.
    What do you think about the length of the album? Come and discuss in our forums.

    If true I really have to say it's underwhelming. Waiting almost three years for just 35mins of music.. And inb4 'quality' comments and crafting rhethoric I'd say that's been widely questioned already.

    I love LP. This better be good.. Smh

    I wish we had a nice intro track and an instrumental. We shall see.

    ...this is the same length pretty much as Hybrid Theory. That album is a decent length.

    For comparison sake:

    Hybrid Theory - 37:51
    Meteora - 36:39
    Minutes To Midnight - 43:26
    A Thousand Suns - 47:51
    Living Things - 37:05
    The Hunting Party - 45:17
    One More Light - 35:19

    So it's the shortest Linking Park album thus far. However, if there were some sort of intro/instrumental added on it would surely reach the average 37 minute mark found in other albums like Living Things which feels like a satisfying length to me.

    Yep a bit underwhelming. Like Andreina just said, 3 years of waiting for 35 minutes isn't something to be happy about. And I'm even enjoying the songs so far, not loving them, but they are ok. But the truth is, the majority of the songs we heard so far are so "equal". No variations, same structure everywhere, minimalistic sounds, and the lyrics aren't even that good (specially considering how they praised this part). I love LP, and always will. But I'm not impressed so far and with 6 songs already known, there isn't much room to improvement. Let's hope they enjoyed this experience, but I expect that they make more elaborated songs next time. MTM is making 10 years today, and that album has some solid stuff. Every album that they put out had some really strong songs musically. All I'm hearing in OML are some samples with some simple drums.

    Bring on the album, I'm not even sad, I respect the band and I'm happy for the simple fact that they are enjoying themselves and are still putting out music. But I expect a little more, next time.

    i had hopes on Sharp Edges being an epic lenght song.

    OML doesn't feel memorable, instead it's repetitive and catchy in a bad way (4 songs left to hear).

    The lack of TLTGYA-is and ALITS-is long tracks is a bit dissapointed, but when the songs are good idfc.
    The track lenghs & full album time reminde me strongly of another eternity, it's also 35 minutes long. if OML half so good is, then gimme!

    You may have waited three years for the album, but I wouldn't blame Linkin Park for that. I believe in another thread Adam mentioned that the band brought the music for this album to the label a year ago.

    There's a lot of other factors in play when it comes to a record release. Design, marketing, touring plans, etc. This album length is pretty on par with what's considered standard.

    If this album had had the standard 12-13 songs it would have been longer than HT, Meteora, and LT ... but it doesn't :/

    Radiohead put out a really short album after about 4 years (King of Limbs). I was upset a bit at first but ended up loving the album because every song is good to me. Hopefully OML plays out that way, more or less.

    I haven't listened to HT in a very long time. I may also have been spoiled by MTM and ATS which to me are their best albums, and both are +40 mins, as @Atticus pointed out . Tracklist also to play a part here (10 songs), even then it looked on the shorter side to me, I would've expected at least 12 songs.

    This is nothing new coming from me, I have said that before, but somehow had hopes that track lengths would compensate the fewer songs. Seems like they didn't.

    I may like this album like I have with every previous one they've put out, and I've liked Heavy and Battle Symphony so far, haven't checked the rest. Nevertheless, I expected a little more.

    The standards have changed though.

    Bruno Mars released his latest album with only 9 songs.
    Imagine Dragons upcoming album has 11.
    Panic! At The Disco had 10.

    I mean, they could always go the route of The Chainsmokers and put out small EPs between albums. :trollface:

    I'm being serious when I say I was told I wasn't supposed to reveal track times. :lol:

    Guess iTunes/Amazon didn't get the memo.

    Honestly, 10-11 track albums are more common than LP's route of 12-15. Hell, Thriller which is considered by some to be one of the greatest albums of all time only has 9 songs.
