Did a little Cover of Heathens.

This song makes me really think, as it has a high pitched voice constantly in the background. It could be like the opposite of Blurryface (who is represented through a deep voice in case one did not know). But I do not fully understand the lyrics of that song so it's kinda hard to interpret the 'function' of this voice.
Besides that these reversed vocals in certain parts of the song are fucking weird as well.

I love twenty one pilots! I think Stressed Out is the most lit song ever made :toocool:

I was watching their Grammy acceptance speech just now and loved how bold they were with taking off their underwear lol. When I saw this with my friends for the first time last year we were like, "Um okay... Wow that's brave."

Thanks!  :)  Age is only a number and we certainly are much younger at heart.  I still have time to convince him.  Tickets don't go on sale until the 20th.  Maybe the new songs/videos will change his mind.  I'll be working on him.  Besides it's the day after our anniversary so a great way to celebrate, I say!!

I just think it's silly for people to put an age range for a band... GO FOR IT AND ENJOY IT :D

That was hubby's response too.  He was so surprised at the number of "people" ahead of me in the waiting room.

So after an hour, I finally was out of the waiting room and able to buy tickets.  But didn't.  The best seats available were $395 plus fees and they were all the way at the back of the arena.  I really like these guys but not for that amount of money.

Agreed.  Hubby nearly died when I told him the amount!  tbh, I really thought they'd be around $89-$129.  Not triple that.  Oh well.  Wasn't meant to be.

This album surprised me with how low key it was. Trench is much more subtle than their previous work. My first listen was on my laptop and it didn't win me over immediately, but I found out that this is one of those albums that absolutely has to be listened to with good quality headphones, and you have to really listen and not just put on a song. Overall I like it, but it's definitely a change.

Are the other songs better than Jumpsuit?  That one I find disappointing.  And did not enjoy their performance last night on the AMA's.

I'm not much of a TOP fan, I've only heard a few of their songs but I liked most of what I've heard. Hadn't heard an album by them in full so I checked out Trench. It's an alright album imo but I'm not sure it's really my cup of tea. Everyone else seems to be loving it though so good for them. A few songs stood out to me. Firstly, Jumpsuit is my favourite track. I really liked Neon Gravestones too, that was the track that stood out to me when I listened to the album. But really, most of the songs I kinda like. There's a few I don't really care about but each track at least has something that I like about it so that's good. I'd probably give it a 7/10

Well, quite a quite place here, isn't it. Still, I want to share a little discovery I made - so let's talk about the last chord of Leave the City.

It's the same as the last chord of Truce - which is cool.
But it's also kinda interesting in terms of music theory. Don't want to come of like some kind of elitist and show off with knowledge, please don't get me wrong. I'm a beginner when it comes to music theory but I just wanted to share my discovery.
So the key of this song is G. The key of a song in general terms is kinda like 'home', this certain chord just feels good. So for example if a song is written in the key of C major, C major will feel good and relaxing, like a relief in the chord progression. Now back to LtC. The chord progression (which gets repeated throughout the whole song) is Cmaj7 Em D Bm. As you can see, G is not in that progression, which is odd - as it is its key, the said feeling of relief. With using the D chord, he is playing with this feeling of missing relief (relief = playing that G chord - the 'tonic') because the D is the dominant chord of that key - if you don't know any of these terms, do not worry. I will explain it. The dominant chord (here it is D) is kinda like the brother of the tonic (here it is G) and going from the dominant to the tonic (D -> G) just feels good to our ears. But Tyler refuses to do this and goes to a Bm instead (D -> Bm). This keeps the tension of this progression throughout the whole song. This is why this song has this strange vibe. It gets even 'worse' because of that Cmaj7 chord, which is really pretty chord - but still won't make that progression feel complete (again, this damn missing G) thus resulting in a good yet tense feeling.
Now we get to the really cool part. In the outro, after this 4 minutes of constant pressure, tension, uncertainty, right after Tyler reveals what 'these face know' (-> 'what I mean') - we finally get to the tonic and feel this release of pressure, this feeling of home in the last chord of the song, the last chord of the record.

Last week I coincidentally heard My Blood on the radio and it was a really odd and powerful experience to me. Then I looked up the music video and fell so in love that I've already decided that I'm gonna spend all the money I don't really have and see their show in February.
