I have the two other Thrice albums, and this is easily as good as The Illusion of Safety. The lead guitar, whilst it does not quite stand out as much as before, still delivers the complex guitar parts. Rhythm guitar as always munches its way through a variety of powerfully distorted chords. The bass is much improved as is the drums. The songs themselves seem better written with more musicality put in them, and they flow wonderfully together. The lyrics are outstanding, unfortunately it's a bit hard to hear on occasions. Still amazing though.

I love this album, Thrice are one of my favourite bands and this is easily their best album in my opinion. I love their other albums, but this is the only one that has me completely gripped every track. This album shows a lot of the range of stuff they can do, songs like 'All That's Left' and 'Stare At The Sun' are good, fairly easy on the ears songs, and great for people who maybe haven't heard Thrice before. Contrastingly there's 'Paper Tigers' which is an awesome track, some people say it's too heavy, but I think it's great that for just one track on the album, they completely let go and thrash out what is actualy an incredible song, and it's a bit of a throw-back to their earlier days of pumelling guitar riffs found on 'Illusion Of Safety' and 'Identity Crisis' but not so much on this. The entire album manages to create a mood, an atmosphere, and I think it's a credit to the band, and especialy Dustin, that they can keep this up for an entire album. This album is a must-have, and this band are a credit to their genre, I strongly reccomend this album.

Not so much heavy metal as post-hardcore. Similar to so many, yet so different I can't compare. This is a wonderful album, and not as hardcore as others would say. The singing outweighs the shouting and screaming, so this is probably a post-hardcore record. The tunes aren't "catchy" as such, but are enjoyable to listen to. "The Artist in the Ambulance" IS THE TRACK! Awesome, awesome, awesome. My 3rd fav track of all-time behind System of a Down-Toxicity and Funeral for a Friend-Escape artists never die. Download them if ur able, cos if u like this u'll most likely love them. Anyway, yeh this record is a worthy purchase, not for the die hard metallers probably, but for those just under that category.

In this major label debut with Island, Thrice have surpassed the punk rock roots of The Illusion Of Safety and have experimented more with structure and coming in to their own.

Cold Cash and Colder Hearts- 8/10. A strong album opener. Straight away, we can hear how Dustin's vocals have improved with the opening line 'They are sick, they are poor, and they die by the thousands as we look away'. A politically based song, but Thrice have handled it very well, often twisting into different time signatures without breaking a sweat on this track. The delay-soaked outro from Teppei and the frantic shouts of Dustin in the breakdown are definitely worth a listen.

Under A Killing Moon- 9/10. This was initially one of my least favourite tracks on the album but over time, I grew to love it. The intro catches you from the very start with its syncopated rhythm from the Breckenridge brothers and the vocals are killer. The screaming vocals and breakdown are epic.

All That's Left- 8/10. The sinister opening breaks down to the strong verses handled by both Dustin and Teppei. However, the real strong point on this song is the chorus, where simple yet strong chords are the order of the day, backed by single notes from Teppei. Everytime the final chorus comes around on this track, I always punch my fist into the air in joy.

Silhouette- 8/10. This is probably one of the more laidback songs on the album and yet it is still just as menacing as any other song on the album once it reaches about halfway. The complex rhythm at the start of the song show just how the band can adapt to different musical styles whilst the drawn out notes of the pre chorus lull you into a false sense of security for the brilliant chorus.

This was my introduction to thrice through a friend, 4 years on I have all their albums and still listen to all of them including this one!
Obviously it was good, or it wouldn't have sparked me off to buy the rest & continue listening, if you havn't heared thrice before, I would suggest this a album a brilliant place to start.
Amasing.

I will start my review by saying that Thrice are one of my favourite bands, and ever since I bought this album I needed no convincing that this was a great album. It is simply the greatest hardcore album that I own, and one which I thoroughly love.
Thrice are like in-between Finch and Poison The Well in terms of heaviness, yet they outstrip Finch due to their overall quality of music and they pack more emotion into their songs than PTW simply due to the more clever lyrics and more melodic parts rather than just constant screaming. This isn’t saying that Thrice are an easy-listening band because they simply aren’t, the thumping bass, great guitar riffs and fantastic visceral lyrics (both shouting and singing) can at times give you a headache, but it’s worth it in the long run.
If you are thinking off purchasing this album simply off hearing “Stare At The Sun” then I would re-consider simply because that is not a fair reflection of Thrice. Thrice on a whole are much heavier than “SATS”. If you prefer the lighter style of “SATS” rather than heavier stuff, then it is doubtful that you will enjoy this album as much as others. If that is the case, then Thrice aren’t really for you, and you should delve into the music market a little further. However, if you feel you can cope with “Hardcore” then that is great, because the greatest band in the world awaits.
Also, the fact that they donate a certain % to the Syrentha J. Savio Endowment charity is another reason to splash out on this album. Basically, Thrice are a great hardcore band, but your tastes will vary on this band depending on the type of heaviness that you are used to in music.
