Tidak jauh berbeda dari Vessel, Blurryface menghadirkan berbagai genre musik. Mulai dari hip-hop to pop to rock to post-hardcore to edm and then pop ballad then back again to hip hop rock …(fill the blank) ITS Everything. Untuk judul album ini, Blurryface sendiri adalah karakter yang dibuat Tyler yang merupakan sisi gelap/insecurity dari dalam dirinya (dan mungkin pada setiap orang yang relate pada setiap lagu di album ini, including me sometimes..) . Album ini sudah dirilis pada 17 Mei 2015, dan terjual sebanyak 147.000 kopi di minggu pertama di Amerika sekaligus menjadi album pertama mereka yang menduduki #1 😀

Here’s my review track by track 🙂

Heavydirtysoul sebagai track pembuka menghadirkan rap dan musik upbeat yang memperdengarkan kemampuan Josh Dun sebagai drummer yang sangat baik. (i could find a better word, Incredible.. ) lagu ini lebih dark, dibanding lagu2 mereka sebelumnya. Kita juga akan mendengar kemampuan rap dan high notes Tyler di lagu ini (he’s so cool and fun lol).

Second track, Stressed Out. Ini nih lagu yang membuat saya jatuh cinta kepada band ini. Genre lagu ini lebih kepada alternative hip hop. The chorus is catchy and easy to sing along, I’m so in love with this song! Hopefully this song could charted well everywhere. Lyrics lagu ini juga pas banget untuk orang2 seperti saya LOL. ‘Wish we could turn back time, to the good old days, when our mamas singing us to sleep but now were stressed out”. College student, worker, and everyone, kalian pasti pernah berapa pada situasi seperti ini ! HA! 😀

Ride, mengingatkan saya pada lagu No Women No Cry. Kita bisa mendengar nuansa rap yang kompleks dengan musik reggae ditambah drum yang keren sepanjang lagu. Soo catchy and fantastic production!

Next single Fairly Local. Heavy electronics, synths, and violin, what can i say anymore, Tyler and Josh nailed it! Theres a bit mystery or spooky elements but i dont care hehehe..

Tear in My Heart is a happier song. Inspirasi lagu ini adalah istri Tyler. I really loved the lyrics. Yes, we will find someone who understand us and will make us ALIVE AND HAVE A SOUL! DAMMIT I NEED TO FIND THE MALE VERSION OF HIS WIFE I THINK LOL..

Reggae-Raps-Drums adalah 3 kata untuk menggamabarkan lagu Lane Boy. Hmm.. keseluruhan hampir di semua lagu Tyler showed us his rap abilty right?! The best part of this song are the bridge till the end. FANTASTIC MUSIC! Serously, kalian harus mendengar setiap lagu di album ini dari awal hingga selesai kalau tidak mau melewatkan transisi musik yang luar biasa.

The Judge membawa kita kembali kepada ukulele Tyler. Jarang2 ada lagu dengan musik ukulele sebaik Twenty One Pilots. Chorus di track ini menunjukkan kemampuan high notes Tyler khususnya setelah bernyanyi di low note. Lagu ini sangat catchy, you would be singing easily by the end! Permainan Drums Josh juga sangat apik, tidak hanya Tyler, tapi Josh sebagai drummer juga bisa menunjukkan kemampuan bermain drum di genre music apapun. Rock, hip hop, reggae, perfectly matched with everything.

Doubt is a dark song. Salah satu perubahan drastis pada produksi suara Tyler hahhaha.. future EDM? No offense (in goodly way), he sounds like the male version of katy perry (only in this song lol). This (catchy) song about in love and having doubts about their partners faith.

twenty_one_pilots_live_old_national_egyptian_room_indianapolis_2014-34Salah lagu lagu paling catchy di album ini adalah Polarize. Could be the next single if they want enter into pop chart. (i guess..)

Ukulele is back. We Dont Believe Whats on TV. I think its a more punky song than pop ukulele song. Great song, vocals and drums. I really loved the YEAH YEAH YEAH part!!

The Next Song, Message Man, SKIP (this song is great, no idea how to described it lol). Dont miss the bridge part, Tyler raps very cool! 😉

Hometown mendengar lagu ini serasa familiar, serasa pernah mendengar lagu ini berkali-kali di radio. This song is super catchy! Tyler you’re a great singer! Hmmm.. what i can say about this song… Well, it is an incredibly relaxed song, while simultaneously being a great song. You could listen to it in a club or in the festivals 😀

Next, the happy song Not Today. Another catchy, upbeat, fun song. The song is rich. You got trumpet, upbeat drums, electronic bass, synths, rapping, clean vocals and catchy vocal hooks. Oww YOU… O I …  (see i already sing along with myself 😀  ). Good Job Guys! – ps. drums is mind blowing!

Lagu penutup di album ini, Goner mungkin merupakan lagu terbaik di album ini. Lagu ini dimulai dengan permainan piano dan vokal Tyler. Ballad. Sounds dark. The song takes aspects from the heavier side of music with some FANTASTIC screams involved toward the end of the song, which is unexpected. It shows off the pain The song is is an incredible way to the end album. BEST !!!

THATS ALL… Overall, I Love the album, meski belum bisa mengalahkan Vessel (which is Masterpiece)

tumblr_nv7j8x4xk91tdbzs3o1_400I LOVE THIS BAND, Their album is a piece of art (uhm.. Masterpiece is for Vessel!), combining multiple genres, writing moving songs. The sound of FUTURE PERFECTION!

Album Rated (9/10)

Best Track: Stressed Out, Ride, Goner, The Judge, Not Today, Polarized, Heavydirtysoul

p.s:  you should check out their video esp. THEIR LIVE PERFORMANCE! (backflipping, jumping, climbing, and more cool stuff). THEY’RE SICK AS FRICK! 😀 very awesome!
