I'm not sure whether I find this collaboration or the Maroon 5/Future collaboration to be weirder, but both songs had pretty uninspiring results.

I should note that Kiiara sounds like a completely different person on this than on "Gold". She sounds like Taylor Swift here, maybe with a little touch of Selena Gomez as well. Linkin Park are sounding a bit more cruddy than usual as well.

2.5*

EDIT: This blows.

2.5* -> 2*

Had no idea that the Kiiara on this is the same Kiiara as the one from Gold! She sounds much better on this.
Good solid track even if it is a bit short, at least it doesn't drag.

Expected better from the guys, this doesn't have a LP sound to it. 3.5*

I really like this track. We all know that it isn't really a Linkin Park so if we all pretend that some other artist sung this song instead, it really speaks volumes. The lyrics about thinking of yourself and not around other people really hits some chords and the tone of the instrumental and voices sync up perfectly.

Like I said, let's all pretend this isn't a Linkin Park song and suddenly this song is amazing!
***
Above all else, at least I'm a big fan of the album's artwork aesthetic. But more crucially they're quite a way from ever coming full circle as they constantly try to reinvent themselves every time. This could be sung/performed by virtually anyone, which shows that possibly in making it sound even more accessible they're hoping for some sort of talent show momentum to piggyback onto. It's a fairly watered down concept of a pop song that could be played in the safest of locations, something which really could not be said about the best of their early work. If I had heard this before knowing it was a Linkin Park song, it would not have made a difference.
****
There's a comparison I want right there, and I just can't grasp it; best I've got for now is 5SOS or One Direction. This is a decent song, but I wish it had a bit more oomph or life to it and then I'd probably be loving it.
**
Linkin Park have essentially always been trend chasers. You can say they have some sort of expected loyalty towards nu metal but that's just because it came first in their career span, as soon as that wave died down, they abandoned it and took more cues from Coldplay. In short, they lack integrity and thus it's a lost cause to say they're selling out with this new album because this is totally in line with them.

Here's my gripe though: In 2014, when Linkin Park were promoting their 6th album "The Hunting Party", that album you may recall was sort of a return to 'RAWWWWK' for them that naturally didn't sell as well and so naturally they have completely abandoned it in 2017. Mike Shinoda got into a bit of trouble when he made an off-hand comment about modern alternative/rock radio which because of lazy journalists got misconstrued, resulting in that hilarious response from CHVRCHES. Mike wasn't saying he didn't like these sugary, light sorts of bands, just that he felt there was too much of it and that the new album was intending to counter the balance. He was quite eloquent about the matter which made you think that there was some genuine honesty behind it and not just cynicism in order to promote the band's 'heavy' album.

So now this exists and screw you Mike Shinoda. Or maybe I shouldn't be so harsh on him, this is a rare instance where he doesn't seem to have any obvious input into the song (though he is a co-writer), for better or for worse? I'm indifferent. The song is majorly limp though. It feels like Linkin Park trying to avoid their typical motif of a loud crunch with the hook, but they're still writing songs in the same way, so you can hear the obvious void when you get there. Though in saying that, the single after this somehow manages to be worse.
