    Although Trench requires a few spins to really register, it's ultimately rewarding and fully immersive, delivering a depth and gravity at which Twenty One Pilots only hinted on Blurryface.
  2. Trench is the sound of a band ratcheting up the ambition without ever being pulled down by an undertow of pretentiousness. It’s more low-key than ‘Blurryface’, but ultimately more rewarding.

    Some of the year's catchiest most accessible alt. pop tunes of the year speaks volumes of the level upon which they're operating here. [13 Oct 2018, p.54]

    Instead of emotive kids turning the radio dials, Trench has more of a cohesive sound and feel.

    The album hangs together thanks to an increased maturity in the thematic content and production.

    Take my recommendation and forget about the most deeply conceptual parts of this concept album--which just seems like a lot of work--and enjoy the many parts of Trench that don’t require a thirst for symbolic origin stories. There are plenty of these, like “Morph” and “My Blood,” which sport falsetto R&B hooks, somewhat in the tradition of the previous album’s best track, “Heavydirtysoul.”

    Their best album so far, a cohesive, introspective and beautiful album with a really cool concept and story.

Some people think it's boring album with no catchy songs (well what about Chlorine and The Hype?), but that's not the point of twenty one pilots music, the meaning is important. Expand

One thing I can say is that this is their most cohesive album yet. The sound, the instrumentation, the lyricism show a more mature side of them. I still can't figure what my favourite song on this album but the 3 strong contenders are Neon Gravestones, Bandito, Chlorine and My Blood. Expand

    Right from the start this album delivers freaking bops, you can really tell the time and passion gone into these songs and when listening toRight from the start this album delivers freaking bops, you can really tell the time and passion gone into these songs and when listening to the album you don't get bored. It may take more than one listen to really delve into the lyrics and meaning behind them.
    It's hard to pick but my favourite tracks would be Morph, Legend, My Blood and Cut my lip.

    The only bad thing i have to say is that i wish the album had a bigger finish, although the last song Leave The City with some great vocals and meaning, i wish the album finished with more passion much like the screamed lyrics at the end of Jumpsuit. Either way, brilliant album.

    Trench is a new approach on this multi-genre style that Twenty one pilots has, with new, more mature lyrics, and melodies we never seenTrench is a new approach on this multi-genre style that Twenty one pilots has, with new, more mature lyrics, and melodies we never seen before. This time it looks like Tyler and Josh wasn't aiming for just radio hits, but to really express themselves on this album. That's why i really like it. This is a lot more closer to what twenty one pilots really is than blurryface. For me this is their best work so far, and made me a even bigger fan. 9/10

    Best songs: Jumpsuit, Morph, My blood, chlorine, Nico and the niners, Pet cheetah

    I don't like the new direction. I love all their previous albums, but this one has gone way too R&B for me me. How critics can rate thisI don't like the new direction. I love all their previous albums, but this one has gone way too R&B for me me. How critics can rate this higher than Blurryface with a straight face is beyond me. Expand
