Linkin Park: Heavy
A few weeks ago Linkin Park released their new single Heavy. I am a Linkin Park fan and my favourite album is A Thousand Suns but I also really like Hybrid Theorie and Meteora. Heavy still got the same structure which you can find in many Linkin Park songs, but it is different from any other. My first thought was that it sounds like Justin Bieber and surprisingly I read that they worked together with some writers from him. If it would be a song from Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran or someone like that I probably wouldn’t mind, but this song? From Linkin Park? In the Youtube comments under the song, I read something like: Linkin Park should rename themselves into ‘Not Linkin Park’. That’s funny but it demonstrates the point pretty well. Where is the Linkin Park of songs like Crawling, Numb, In the End, or Breaking the Habit? I want those guys back.
Chester Bennington said that they are confused themselves and that the new album will be a mix of many genres so I hope there will be something of the old Linkin Park in it. We will see when One More Light comes out, probably on the 19th of may.
