Linkin Park has released another new song, “Invisible”, and it’s a continuation of their exploration into pop-rock.
In “Invisible”, Linkin Park decided to join an increasing trend of dark rock music bands shifting into the pop-rock or EDM-rock genre. Bands shifting into different genres should be encouraged, however, “Invisible” is possibly one of the most unusual songs they have ever made. Linkin Park lead singer Chester Bennington, said in a recent interveiw with NME, 'Why are we still talking about Hybrid Theory?' It's f*****g years ago. It’s a great record, we love it. Like, move the f*** on. You know what I mean?"
However, the lackluster instrumentals and vocals for “Invisible” feels as if Linkin Park isn’t trying to make good music in their new genre. Linkin Park’s decision to replace Chester Bennington with Mike Shinoda as the lead singer for “Invisible” devoids it from having any impact or authenticity. Hopefully, Linkin Park will have more promising pop-rock songs for their upcoming album, One More Light.
One More Light will be made available on May 19 at onemorelight.linkinpark.com
