This is probably my most listened to album of the year so far, and so, why not just rank the tracks?
|14||Twenty One Pilots|
This track did not fit the style of the album, it just felt so out of place. The organ-like piano in the intro just threw off the entire tone of the album for me, and I didn't particularly enjoy. The track on its own is not bad, but it just didn't fit into the album personally. I honestly wouldn't have minded if this was left off.
The vocals aren't too shabby.
|13||Twenty One Pilots|
I don't really have much to say about this track. It sounds oddly familiar to "Wonderwall" to me, and I don't know how to feel about that exactly haha. Anyway, I had high hopes for this after hearing about the reception of it from the leak, but I didn't buy the hype (I like my puns intended).

Cut My Lip
A very instrumentally-reliant track, focusing more on musicianship rather than vocals. One of the slower songs of the album, yet nonetheless musically powerful. Once again, not much special to this track, but those instrumentals are top-notch and show of some of the best musicianship of the album (just haven't been able to feel it much).
|11||Twenty One Pilots|
There's not much special to this track. The synth-drum combo is pretty catchy and keeps the song moving along, but the vocals sort of fall short here. Not sure why, but I've never gotten into this song much at all.
|10||Twenty One Pilots|
A very upbeat sounding track, with synths of a higher than usual melody and upbeat drums. Although not quite as groovy, this song reminds me a lot of "My Blood" with the rapped verses and falsetto choruses. Pretty decent track.
The lyrics of the first verse.

Nico and the Niners
When this first dropped, I thought this was my least favorite of the album. Overtime, however, this grew upon me immensely. The ukulele provides a nice throwback to some of their previous records while still maintaining the heavily-electronically tinged tone of this album.
The track rewind overlaid with Tyler Joseph's rapping.

The grooviest of all the tracks here, My Blood has a beat that will get your head nodding. Once again, the verses are chock full of rapping while the choruses contain melodic falsetto, fortified with synths that amplify the atmosphere. However, the main drawback of the entire song is that it is fairly repetitive, running in circles and not really going anywhere in particular.
The falsettos of the chorus, I don't know why, I just really like them.
|7||Twenty One Pilots|
Almost like three songs in one, Chlorine has a very chill vibe, utilizing a simplistic drum beat complemented by atmospheric bass to complete. With a mixture of melodic vocals in the chorus and rap-like bars in the verses, Chlorine gives the best of both styles of TOP, only to end with a down tempo beat to wrap up the song.
The concluding moments of the song (downtempo)
|6||Twenty One Pilots|
TOP's first all rap track. Without hesitation, Tyler Joseph puts forth some of his best flow with constant rapping. Underneath is a beat of rapid rhythm and synthetic bass, producing a track that would fit on a straight up hip hop album.
"Chorus, verse, chorus, verse, now here comes the eight, wait"
|5||Twenty One Pilots|
The longest track of the record. It's combination of synths and progressive drumming leads up to the final chorus of melody, enhanced atmosphere, and climax.
The final instrumental combining all of the build-up aspects into one.
|4||Twenty One Pilots|
One of the most hated tracks of the album, but one of my personal favorites. Yes, the lyrics are absolutely cheesy and it is heavily pop-influenced, but I dig the whole sound. The rapping flows very well and the drum and bass style is very catchy with a rather melodic chorus.
|3||Twenty One Pilots|
Leave the City
The closer, although not as powerful as the other closers of TOP's career, is a beautiful way to end the album. Containing some of Josh Dun's best drum grooves with an intricate rhythm, the whole track is one progressive track of drums, vocals, and piano complemented by many of the electronic synths prevalent throughout the album, resulting in a great conclusion to the album.
The build-up of drum complexity throughout.
|2||Twenty One Pilots|
The first single, and what a single to promote the album. Showing off a more "rock" influenced tinge, the bass and drums work hand in hand to create a pummeling atmosphere, ending off with the final screams of Tyler Joseph. Truly a great song and a great way to start off an album.
The final climax filled with the only screams of the record.
|1||Twenty One Pilots|
This is by far the best track of the record. With the off-beat ghost note drumming with the piano and atmospheric synths accompanying the rapping and harmonies just creates a beautiful track worth listening to over and over again. Everything about this song is just perfect to me.
The entire song...
|This album is still holding on for a potential AOTY candidate for me. This is one of the few albums this year that I can just turn on and listen to from start to finish without any desire of changing the track. Overall, its a fantastic record. |
Anyway, let me know what your ranking is
|12 is the best, the fuck.|
|10 is way too low |
|I like 13 way better, and 4 does nothing for me. I do like 1 a lot, though.|
|I mean, this was a tough ranking and I love all these songs (except for “Legend”) and so 13, 10, and 12 are all great tracks, but not as good as the others to me personally|
