Album Review: “Trench” by Twenty One Pilots

The newest album by Twenty One Pilots, “Trench,” is honestly disappointing. After the  enormous success of “Blurryface,” the band went on hiatus, and that was probably the wrong decision. Instead of capitalizing on their previous successes, they took time to regroup, but in doing so they lost all of their momentum. “Trench” never really hits its mark. The songs seem to alternate between dynamic stagnation and failed climax. A lot of songs never even try to have any rise or fall, and the ones that do have some rise never actually peak, which leaves the listener feeling unsatisfied. While there are some enjoyable songs individually, like “Morph” and “Chlorine,” the album as a whole seems like one big blur. The songs all sound very similar and it is very difficult to distinguish between them. While this seems to be a big problem with a lot of albums that have come out so far this year, this seems to be one of the most egregious example.

Rating: 5 out of 10
