This album isn’t the worst thing in the world – in fact it is quite a bit better than the material they’ve been peddling over the course of the last several years.

‘One More Light‘ is a collection of tracks that unfortunately leaves one dry and with a sense of dismay.

AllMusic

The problem is that much of One More Light is devoid of that visceral charge that previously defined much of their catalog. It's a provocative challenge that ultimately fails to satisfy.

Upset
We know Linkin Park have gone pop with ‘One More Light' but there's really no need to brace yourself. The usual trappings of a move like this are nowhere to be found.

The Young Folks

I’m mixed about this LP.  While I think calling them sell-outs is too harsh, I still don’t think they were up to par lyrically.  They lost their legendary guitar riffs with the electronic production taking over as well.

Consequence of Sound

A muddled mess of a record from a band that completely abandoned any sense of identity.

NME

It’s harsh to criticise a great band for trying something different, and it’s not an issue that this is a pop album. The issue is that it’s weak and a contrived commercial move.

Erstwhile nu-metallers' new direction falls flat.

Classic Rock
Removing the ‘metal’ from ‘nu metal’.

This record is important. It is essential. Linkin Park has released something that holds a highly inspirational message for upcoming artists. From this day on, any low key bedroom independent musical artist will be able to say they're capable of putting out a better effort than a huge band like this, without having to spend a single fraction of what LP did for producing such work. Have faith in yourself.

While completely alienating their original core fanbase in the process, Linkin Park puts everything that sucks about the music industry in 2017 into one album. Shitty rap features, overblown EDM production, and songs that have absolutely no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Literally everything is bad: the title, the cover, and of course the music itself. Not many albums deserve this low of a score, but Linking Park really proved that they can make one deserving of it.
