Twenty One Pilots hits a bullseye with ‘Trench’

by Brandon Carson Even though they have been making music for nearly a decade, Twenty One Pilots struck a chord in the mainstream with their last album Blurryface back in 2015. Songs like "Ride" and "Stressed Out" basically controlled the radio. While they did have a sound that was pretty unique and genre jumping, I always found something missing from their sound. Blurryface sounded like it was made for the radio, where they didn’t push any buttons making that record. But with Trench, they push boundaries with their instrumentals, production, and song structures while also delivering excellent vocals.

Enhanced and well planned production
