Kerrang!Jun 15, 2018It's an important, thoughtful album that will serve to unite the grief-stricken with a new-found sense of purpose to find some form of healing. [9 Jun 2018, p.53]
Jun 25, 2018Throughout Post Traumatic, you can sense how unmoored Shinoda is without that spectacle. His chest doesn’t puff out as far as it did on Fort Minor. His compositions don’t detonate like his best work for Linkin Park. His bandmates aren’t there to lift him up when he falls short. He sounds abandoned.

After all he went through in the past year, he actually had the courage to rise up and explain the world his true feelings about the suffering he's been through, (Chester Bennington's death, and family issues).… Expand

Jun 19, 2018I wish this album never existed because it is the result of Chester's passing . But since the reality is as it is, what can you say about it?I wish this album never existed because it is the result of Chester's passing . But since the reality is as it is, what can you say about it? No words describe what Mike has done. Amazing. Raw. Honest. I can only be grateful that he made this magnificent piece of cathartic music and i hope he keeps doing what he is doing since he started Linkin Park until this very moment.… Expand

Jun 16, 2018Really love the album, I want to give it a 9.5 but of course you cant do that and I am just not confident enough in giving this a ten untilReally love the album, I want to give it a 9.5 but of course you cant do that and I am just not confident enough in giving this a ten until future repeated listens, but this album is really strong. The main red flag coming into this was my fear that the album might be kind of corny, that has plagued some of his raps on Linkin Park albums in the past so it definitely did worry me. But on this album he actually does not rap on every track, some of them are singing tracks and he can sing reasonably well so this works. Moreover because it is not oversaturated with his raps it feels like his best verses come out on this album and that there are not painfully mediocre ones. There are not any bad tracks on this album overall, but for overall highlights on the album I would pinpoint the two most lyrical tracks here Lift Off & I.O.U, on both of these tracks Mike is rapping his ass off with lines like "I don’t drop mics, only let it smoke where I set it" or "Easy as a standard anti-gravity backflip" or "You're too fat for the sharks that you're swimming in". Other songs that are more melodic are also highlights like Over Again, Crossing A Line and Ghosts. This album surprised me especially considering that Nas was releasing on the same day, but holy **** this was phenomenal.… Expand
Jun 28, 2018I heard "Post Traumatic" this morning. It was TRAUMATIC FOR ME to be subjected to this GARBAGE! The songs and production were BOTH HORRIBLEI heard "Post Traumatic" this morning. It was TRAUMATIC FOR ME to be subjected to this GARBAGE! The songs and production were BOTH HORRIBLE BEYOND BELIEF! AS a VETERAN artist, I expect better from the likes of Shinoda. I am so sick and tired of VETERAN artists like him selling out their legacies by putting out the same GARBAGE of their younger contemporaries.
There is ZERO originality here. Typical, tired a** use of trap musickkk beats; horrible song structure; banal, boring, trite "lyrics". Recommendation for Shinoda: don't quit your hustle with Linkin Park and go exclusively solo. And please don't turn Link Park into the sh**hole that are your solo efforts! :-(
