EDITORS’ NOTES

The debut from Ohio’s twenty one pilots is a genre-melding album that nods to their theatrical leanings (Arthur Miller’s play All My Sons inspired their name). Splashy, defiant songs fuse piano-bar pop sensibilities with 21st-century beats and grand exhibitions of emotion, as in the soaring chorus of the Bowie-echoing “Air Catcher” and the doo-wop-backed bravado of “Friend, Please.” Tyler Joseph’s knotty depictions of millennial angst on tracks like the ruminative “Taxi Cab” and the gritty “Isle of Flightless Birds” are forthright and poetic.

Beyond Amazing

This band is awesome! It's so different than most music out there and that's why I love it. They are great live and you can tell they love their music. It's one of the only bands that I would recommend to just about everyone. If you can, you really need to see them perform, or at least buy this cd! "Fall Away", "Addict With a Pen","Friend, Please" and of course "Time to Say Goodbye" are probably my favorites even though I like them all! Just buy the cd to find out for yourself how truly amazing they are!

This is good stuff.

After listening to the majority of this album on their MySpace page, I finally bought it, and I can't express how happy I am I did that. Every song is powerful enough on it's own to be a single. And the entire album shows a band that is composed of strong rhythms; melodic, catchy, and thought provoking vocals; keyboards that make you wish you could play along; and finally a bass line that is perfect in every way.

All in all this is one of the rare albums I have found where I like every song, some I admit are better than others, but I hope to see this band go places, it will be a great shame if they never do.

Simply talent ,
