    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.

    Nothing less than a masterpiece. They gave us everything they have and it was absolutely worth the wait.

    Favorite tracks from this album would probably be My Blood, Chlorine, and Legend. Better than Blurryface but not as catchy as Vessel in my opinion.

    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.
