This one got me into Twenty One Pilots. It's not that I didn't like their other stuff (Blurryface and Vessel are pretty solid), but it was just a little ... I don't know .. as if they had too much ideas and created a big mess, while trying to sound "big". Does that make sense? I don't know.
Trench is different. It sounds smooth and consistent. And while you get hooked more and more with every listen, you realise, what an amazing story they put together here. After Blurryface they could have stayed in the pop lane and secure their mainstream success, while getting Imagine Dragon-ized. But they didn't. They chose to evolve and create something meaningful. I have massive respect for that.
I like pretty much every thing, but I want to highlight two moments, that capture the greatness of Trench the most: 1) the transition between Jumpsuit (the most rock we get here) and the rap-song Levitate feels ridiculously natural. 2) The moment, when the depressing honesty of Neon Gravestones is followed by the pure optimism of The Hype.
I never disbelieved Twenty One Pilots in any way, actually I find their major hit "Stresses Out" one of the best songs to go mainstream. But, the fact is that despite that, the problem with the band is that It is inconsistent and sometimes pretty edgy.
But "Trench" is somewhat diferent, It seems like a more mature and focused album. And that really paid off. Kind of surprised by the direction they took.
Im surprised twenty one pilots could make an album as great as this to be honest, they have matured a lot musically since there early more mainstream stuff.
The production is very consistent from start to finish and some of the ideas on here are really interesting and work so well, such as the song "Nico And The Niners" where the instrumental is sampled and played backwards near the end of the song to finish off with quite a psychedelic rap verse.
Its a very light hearted album and not to be taken too seriously so if you can deal with "white pop rap" and sometimes odd vocals I would recommend you give this a listen. ( It did take the second time round for me to appreciate it more)
Great listen, probably their best - not mainstream like their previous works but shows the band is improving in quality and maturity.
Solid album with many listenable music but it isn't as good as blurry face however still close and good.
Best tracks:jumpsuit, hype, nico and niners, cut my lips, bandito
Worst tracks: levitate, my blood
Basically is the best álbum from tewenty one Pilots, this álbum is really experimental and well done produce, 85/100 :)!
It's solid. THeir most ambitious project yet and an improvement on blurryface in every aspect. Levitate is too similar to their early work to a fault.
