The "new" Klingon look was cool. Klingons looked creepy and intimidating again. Dislike them if you want, but they didn't have eyestalks, walk on all fours or glow in the dark. J.J. didn't reboot their look at all.
They were Klingons. Pretty traditional Klingons along the lines of we've come to expect since 1979. They weren't as radical a change as some think. In a race of billions there are bound to be some that cosmetically hang decorative rings in their cranial ridges and have lighter-colored eyes.
