Album Review: Twenty One Pilots - Vessel
Graham Clark, Features Writer
Rating 4/5

This was a new act to me and I had never heard of them before but this is an epic album that will appeal to the masses. The act is an American duo from Columbus, Ohio. The album is produced by Greg Wells who has worked with Adele and Katy Perry and he gives this album a fine sheen.

The album starts off with the track Ode to Sleep where vocalist Tyler Joseph sounds like a singing version of Eminem, the track is a real mixture of styles. Holding on to You sounds like Monsters and Men mixed with another American duo, Capital Cities who are just starting to have success in the UK.

Things really get into gear with House of Gold, if you like the group Train, then this track will make sense. It has a nagging melody that sticks in your head all day. They will be playing this track in years to come at the bigger venues they are surely destined to play.

Guns for Hands is so joyful and uplifting (yes, really with a title like that) and there is an Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark influence on the track.By this far on in the album Tyler Joseph has found his natural singing voice. Trees shows the duo in ballad style and the track grows in strength.

The duo is playing a UK tour next February which visits the Cockpit in Leeds on Saturday 22 February 2014.

An album worth discovering.
