Positives: Mike's singing is incredible. It's the biggest highlight of this album for me. There's so much really great things going on instrumentally. Like has been touched upon, there are just so many parts to each song to discover. I'm just now finding the subtle clean guitar behind Kiiara's verse in Heavy. Brad's guitar-playing. It just feels so right. Very little of the power chord riffs or octaves that are a tell-tale sign of Shinoda's hand. It has a genuine Brad feel to it. Sorry for Now was one of the biggest and most amazing surprises that an artist I follow has released. Despite some comments I have seen about the lyrics being "straight from a Hallmark card", I believe these songs stand among some of the best lyrics they've made. LP has a tendency to write lyrics some might call "whiney", but songs like Sharp Edges disregard this entirely. The band dug deep and got extraordinarily personal with this album, like they promised. The way the tracks are so personal to them, combined with the perspective of many of the lyrics, make it just feel like a real experience of an album. This is something I feel they've only hit with A Thousand Suns before. I really enjoy Mike's flow on Good Goodbye, which I see @Deliveranze has also mentioned. The lyrics to his verse did not have me impressed when I glimpsed them but his delivery is just way better than expected. Negatives: Talking to Myself. I feel it's the weakest track on the album currently. I still like it enough, and it might grow on me in time, but it feels really out of place and of lower quality compared to the other tracks, even Heavy or Good Goodbye, which are not as strong and ill-fitting compared to the rest of the album, respectively. I'm also not a fan of the guitar tone honestly. The album at some points seems to get a little caught up in Mike Shinoda's current obsessions, namely with trap drums and effected vocals. I don't dislike these things but I feel just a little (and I emphasize little) too much of it was sprinkled throughout the album. One of the moments I feel strongly about this is at the beginning of Invisible leading into the first verse. The drums just don't seem to work right there. I feel like it should have been live drums or something that was a little bit more spacious-sounding. Track Rankings: Sorry for Now Invisible One More Light Sharp Edges Halfway Right Nobody Can Save Me Battle Symphony Good Goodbye Heavy Talking to Myself The only real big gap is between Heavy and Talking to Myself. I just don't feel like it's a very strong song. Album Rankings: A Thousand Suns One More Light Minutes to Midnight Meteora Living Things The Hunting Party Hybrid Theory As much as I love MTM, I feel it doesn't have as much replay as a whole compared to One More Light. If I'm in a mood for one of the songs off MTM, there's probably one I don't want to listen to (it's usually What I've Done to be honest). But I still think A Thousand Suns outdoes One More Light. The run of When They Come for Me to Blackout is too good.
