Trench RANKED

This is probably my most listened to album of the year so far, and so, why not just rank the tracks?

Trench


Legend

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.

Favorite Moment:
The vocals aren't too shabby.

The Hype

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).

Favorite Moment:
"Just don't believe the Hype"

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).

Favorite Moment:
The instrumentation.

Smithereens

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.

Favorite Moment:
The bridge.

Morph

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.

Favorite Moment:
The lyrics of the first verse.
9Twenty One Pilots

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.

Favorite Moment:
The track rewind overlaid with Tyler Joseph's rapping.

My Blood

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.

Favorite Moment:
The falsettos of the chorus, I don't know why, I just really like them.

Chlorine

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.

Favorite Moment:
The concluding moments of the song (downtempo)
6Twenty One Pilots
Trench


Levitate

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.

Favorite Moment:
"Chorus, verse, chorus, verse, now here comes the eight, wait"
5Twenty One Pilots
Trench


Bandito

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.

Favorite Moment:
The final instrumental combining all of the build-up aspects into one.
4Twenty One Pilots
Trench


Pet Cheetah

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.

Favorite Moment:
"Jason Statham"
3Twenty One Pilots
Trench


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.

Favorite Moment:
The build-up of drum complexity throughout.
2Twenty One Pilots

Jumpsuit

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.

Favorite Moment:
The final climax filled with the only screams of the record.
1Twenty One Pilots
Trench


Neon Gravestones

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.

Favorite Moment:
The entire song...
