CRITIC REVIEWS

Alternative Press

For the follow-up to 2013’s Vessel, multi-directional pop princes twenty one pilots ramped up everything, from new influences to the number of producers (four) to the metric ton of uncertainties and fears multiplying in frontman/songwriter Tyler Joseph’s cranium. And it’s wonderful.

AllMusic

In addition to the hit singles "Ride" and "Stressed Out" -- which tackle millennial angst and relatable life struggles -- Blurryface is packed with self-aware lyrics, clever observations, and deep introspection.

Although they may not have invented the concept of fusing rock and hip-hop, it’s a refreshing change of pace for a mainstream environment that isn’t accustomed to such eclecticism.

Billboard

An album that doesn't quite reach the heights of Vessel, but nevertheless serves as evidence that one of pop's most daring duos isn't about to slow down -- even if that means running into a few walls.

The Needle Drop

Ohio pop/rap/rock/electronic music duo Twenty One Pilots chases 2013's breakout Vessel with a series of radio pop and reggae-infused tunes on Blurryface.

"Hey let's make an album about how bad pop music is, and how we struggle to express ourselves as musicians!"

"Top 40s"

"Sounds good bro"

straight up formula pop SHIT. i can't believe i let my ears go through the torture that is blurryface. the members of the group annoy me as people, and the songs are like mad libs. plug in a few words that make it seem trendy, add in pronouns like "her, she" to make them about a girl, and then layer it over a repetitive beat that has no creativity. i'm gonna go tear my heart (yeah i know) so i don't have to hear this band again

Really not as bad as y’all make it out to be. Nothing worth praise but the people dropping single digit scores are just circle jerking

I mean, it's not as bad as some might have you believe, but it ain't all that good either...
