I knew they had it in them! Vessel outshines Twenty One Pilots’ previous work in every way and every element of their sound has massively improved because of it. The production quality has improved and has become more immersive, utilizing a lot of cool production tricks, even if I think the mastering needed work. The flow between tracks is actually well coordinated, which makes this album more of a solid release. Especially with the theme of day and night in the lyrics throughout. I wish they used that more throughout the album to add more cohesion. Speaking of the lyrics, these are some of the best I’ve heard from Twenty One Pilots. Twenty One Pilots took what was good about Regional At Best and they added it to most, if not all of the songs. The lyrics take a turn for the introspective and heartfelt and rarely talk down to outsiders while pandering to insiders. Even though there are some dumb lines here and there, these lyrics finally make me think about what Tyler is trying to say and sometimes even relate it to my life. Speaking of Tyler, these are easily some of his best vocal performances. He shred off his weird pronunciations and now I can listen to him without cringing. But my favourite part of this album is the instrumentation. It’s just so creative and fun! It adds a youthful vibe to this album that is characteristic of the best parts of Twenty One Pilots’ past and present sound. Although there are a few things I wish were more polished on this album, this album is great!

Challenge! If we can get 200 views on Vesper on YouTube by Friday I’ll drop something new. At this point in my progression I’m still not sure whether listeners enjoy my beats or songs more, however if we get there by Friday I will drop something? might even mess around and let Toothpick Tom rap. How about that? IGTV almost there already, but if you haven’t seen the visuals for “Vesper” yet check it out on YouTube #LinkInBio GO! ALSO, party Friday!
