for Holding onto You. Astounded by the fact that someone new had a song with some heart in it on the radio, I posted the bridge lyrics on Facebook (being the daring, original, creative person that I am). This got the attention of my old friend Amanda who proceeded to bombard me with how awesome twenty one pilots is. At her insistence I downloaded Vessel and began to listen to it straight through. That is until I heard Car Radio. I listened to that one song at least a dozen times. Never had I heard a song so perfectly capture someone’s heart. Their frustrations, confusions, depressions, and rage. As an individual who will over analyze every possible scenario to points of destruction, Car Radio resonated within me in a way I did not think possible. It captures what the late, great F. Scott Fitzgerald said, “We write so that the people who read will know they are not alone with what they feel.” (paraphrasing)
thank her and to share in twenty one pilots. She said they had an earlier album and after immediately downloading twenty one pilots I
found myself again blown away by Addict With a Pen. I was not as personally touched as I had been after listening to Car Radio, but I was certain that these guys, in an age of overproduction and auto tune, were artists in the truest sense. A duo to be acknowledged and respected regardless of taste and preferences.
