Stick with me on this...
Well - on first listen, I wasn't overly impressed. As I said, stick with me - I gave it 5 stars. It sounds absolutely nothing like Thrice's previous output. I find it hard to find a single track on Vheissu that has that "Thrice" sound. I was disappointed. I listened to the album and found that it has mellow and soft bits that are mellower and softer than Thrice usually does. It also has some grindingly heavy stuff that is heavier than anything I've heard them do before and again I wasn't keen. Also - the lyrics seemed bleaker than normal. While Thrice have normally seemed to have quite a degree of "Righteous anger" in their lyrics, this album seemed fed up with the world, and instead of wanting to instigate a change, wanted it to be over with. Also - the lyrics seemed a little more full of biblical imagery and phrasing than normal.
It was only when I re-looked at the lyrics to "Like Moths to Flame" that something seemed to make sense. When I'd first listened to that song, I'd thought it was about a girl. The last line about betraying my king confused me. Re-looking, I realised this is a song about Peter denying he knew Jesus at his crucifiction!
From then a lot more of the album made sense. The biblical imagery isn't just imagery but quite often retells Biblical stories and messages. The album suddenly seemed less bleak, and more looking to what is to come AFTER this world rather than simply waiting for this world to end and be done with. I'm curious to know whether one or more of the band has become, or has become more openly Christian. I'll go and find out in a mo.
As for the album - it's grown on me a lot from that first listen. They try so many new ideas in this album and do have shades of Muse about them.

Ok, so Thrice's new album is very different in a lot of ways, but that doesn't stop it from being one of the best around, and there's no reason why most music fans shouldn't like it. Admittedly, if you are a die-hard hardcore fan, then you probably won't like the majority of this album, so if you need music to be heavy to enjoy it, probably don't buy it. Aside from that, I cannot fault this album, listen to it and let yourself be taken away by it all. In a lot of ways this is like 'The Artist In The Ambulance' in the sense that songs like 'Image Of The Invisible', 'The Earth Will Shake' and 'Music Box' have a real atmosphere about them, they sound immense and powerful, and as always it's a credit to the band's immense writing and playing abilities. The opening track, 'Image Of The Invisible', is my favourite on the album, I think mainly because of Dustin's ability to shout at the top of his voice and still be singing. As for the so called 'Experimental' tracks, yes they are different, but they sound good, songs like 'Between The End And Where We Lie' show their ability to compose new, different material, and do it well. 'The Earth Will Shake' is another of my favourites, great guitar, great lyrics, and the acoustic chorus with the gospel choir is excellent, it's all part of Thrice experimenting and finding new areas to dabble in. Another stand out, 'Music Box', is almost my joint-favourite with 'Image Of The Invisible', the combination of a delicate music box melody throughout, and Teppei thrashing away is nothing short of beautiful. I can't think of any other band that would be able to combine two such opposite things and come out with such an incredible song. Thrice are an incredible band, and are an example to rest of the bands in their genre to aspire to.

Ok, this album is different from their previous outputs. I'm glad that Thrice is trying to take their sound in a new direction, since 2003's "The Artist In The Ambulance" was a little too poppy and uninspired (yet still good!) for my tastes. Vheissu is a lot darker and more atmospheric than before. It is clear that they are trying to redefine themselves in their artistry. This new take on their sound is very evident on "The Earth Will Shake", "Atlantic", "For Miles" and "Like Moths To Flame" for example, and these songs blew me away. However it seems they are afraid of straying too far into new territory, as most other tracks seem to borrow from the "TAITA" sound. This isn't necessarily something bad since that album had some rockin' tunes, but you are left feeling like Vheissu could have been something much more than it is. This is definatly a solid album and worth the money, especially if you're a Thrice fan like myself. It seems like Thrice could go anywhere from this album, which is a positive thing. Bands should evolve in my opinion. Vheissu is a good effort, but hopefully next time Thrice will have the guts to go all the way. This album is worth about 4 stars, but I'm left hoping for more, so it gets a 3. Can't wait for their next installment after this one!

I bought this album after seeing the video for "Image of the Invisible". I'm not a fan of Hardcore and until I had heard the track that's what I thought Thrice was. However I was found to be wrong. Vheissu is definably one of the best albums I have ever heard. The music is so intricate where many bands would of simply wrote a good melody and left it at that, Thrice have gone back and added more complexity which works amazingly well. You find something new every time you listen. Vocally this album is flawless too. The shouted parts of songs are done with dignity and are not over used which doesn't leave you looking for the pause button because you need a rest. Personally I like the lyrics to all the songs my favourite being "Music Box". However the Christian themes to the lyrics on this album are perhaps over done going so far as to actually quote the bible a few times during the album. I suppose you can try and make your own interpretations but I find that they are too blatant to be anything other than what they appear to be. All in all a very, very good album. Perhaps it could be a classic but if the band evolve like they did from AITA to Vheissu on their next album then who knows how good they could be?
