Pulls Thrice away from their previous album, and works,
This review is from: Vheissu (Audio CD)
First of all, I realize there are a lot of Thrice fans disappointed by this album, but I find this to be their best album to date -
I found Artist In The Ambulance good, but generic. In my opionion, Vheissu separates Thrice from being a generic metal band, similar to the likes of Atreyu, and displays a much more mature, self-reflective brand of music. There is a lot of experimental stuff on here, but I love every track personally, and I think this album hits the perfect mix of metal and experimentation, with some of Thrice's later albums lacking the former.
This is a great album to buy first if you are getting into Thrice.
(I do not dislike Atreyu, however that genre is full with very average music)
