POST TRAUMATIC, 3 YEARS LATER

PT was crucial for I guess all of us in processing Chester's passing and grieving, but now, 3 years later, with a bit less emotional involvement, how does the album sit with me ? As someone who isn't a big fan of what Mike has put out since 2019, I decided to make a simple track by track of the record, just rating and a little comment. Feel free to comment below.

1. Place to Start 7,5/10, super emotional and smooth intro.

2. Over Again 8,5/10, the hardest song to sit through, super raw and emotional. Great flow by Mike, that first verse is still unsettling.

3. WAIF 7,5/10, bouncy flow, still pretty solid lyrics, love the little instrumental bridge.

4. NMSA 7/10, naked as it should be, seen the lyrical content. I feel a little bored while listening the whole song, but still pretty solid.

5. About You 7,5/10 Great flow, love Blackbear feature (I started listening to his music after this song). Not a fan of the repetitive ending.

6. Brooding 6,5/10 Nice instrumental.

7. PICK 8,5/10 Great track, the closest to what I guess LP would sound like if they make a new record. Amazing lyrics.

8. CAL 6,5/10 Here is where things start to get meh for me, I really don't like the "lullaby" kind of effect the verses give me, the chorus is ok, the instrumental is cool.

9. Hold it together 6,5/10 Super bouncy, I always felt weird for how the beat is too "happy" as opposed to the lyrical content. Always gave me Fort Minor "Believe me" vibes. I always felt a bit bored halfway through the song.

10. Ghosts 5/10 I really don't like Mike's vocals here. It always sounded like a super silly song to me. The only thing I like is the LP-ish bridge.

11. MIUAIG 5/10 Never liked K-Flay, really not my thing. The rest is ok, nothing special. Still, I get these "lullaby" vibes in the pre-chorus which I'm not a big fan of.

12. Lift Off 7/10 Solid song, I wish I liked it more but there's something that doesn't really click me the way it should.

13 IOU 8/10 Banger, great Mike flow. maybe a bit out of context in an album called Post Traumatic, but it's cool.

14. RFMS 7/10 My only "problem" is Grandson, I don't like his voice that much. The rest is cool.

15. World's on Fire 7/10 Nice song, I like the lyrics a lot. It's a bit generic sounding in the actual musical landscape, it could even be another artist, but it's nice.

16. Can't hear you now 6,5/10 The rap is great, same for the pre chorus, but not a big fan of the chorus. It's another song that could have been made by another artist, and it's a bit repetitive.

(Prove you Wrong: 4,5/10, see the problems I have with Ghosts (and Welcome) but worse; WTWM 7,5/10 very NIN, moody and dark).

Never understood the love for IOU, easily the worst ‘ track’ on the record by far

 

Worlds on fire, lift off and what the words meant are my my fav

I love the flow on IOU, even tho it's out of place on the record. Why do you call it "track" ?

Great album, still got it on repeat in my car. If instead of MS it was released by Post Malone or somebody else with a bigger solo name we would be talking bout an easy number 1 in the charts

Maybe. Despite not being a big fan of the song, I was shocked to see that MIUAIG wasn't huge as a single

Was never a big fan of the album or era. One More Light was the last album that I somewhat enjoy, which I know is different since it's Linkin Park, not Mike Shinoda, but yeah. After Chester passed, the entire Linkin Park discography helped me, especially One More Light, actually, I had no problem listening to it after Chester passed like a lot of fans did, I used it to help me heal from the loss. I've never been a huge fan of the side projects of band members except for the earlier ones back in the day, but even then, Linkin Park is my actual shit that I love. I'm not knocking Post Traumatic by any of this, though. I know it massively helped a lot of fans heal, and I believe that the Post Traumatic era as a whole helped Mike heal, too. I don't know what I could say my favorite song off of the album is, as I kind of would give them all the same rating.

I get what you say, as you can see, I gave a lot of “good but not great” ratings, because I feel the same way

Yeah, One More Light is a much better record than Post Traumatic IMO. Even if One More Light isn't my absolute favorite, it still holds a special place in my heart.

Same. And let me tell you, I like SFN and Invisible a lot more than most of PT.

Maybe minus Over Again and Promises 

What?? There were a few good tunes on Post Traumatic actually, maybe. Running From My Shadow had potential but the grandson feature is kind of meh. I like Place To Start kind of because it's weird and mellow.

OA and Promises are really good IMO. The rest a little bit less
