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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
