Alchemy Index, Beggars Repress
2012-01-31 by John Lennon beat his wife. STAFF | 55 Comments

Thrice's Alchemy Index project, as well as Beggars, will be repressed in the near future in order to accommodate enduring demand for the out of print masterpieces. Both will reportedly be reissued in the same packaging.

Quote:
The Alchemy Index has gone for over $200 on Ebay during several auctions over the past year. One, that ended on December 20th of last year, even went for $500. The last copy of Beggars to go up for auction went for over $60.

minus the attempt (or at least what I think was an attempt) to sound more like Radiohead, I really liked Beggars. Not that I have anything against Radiohead, The Bends is one of my favorite albums and "Subterranean Homesick Alien" is one of my favorite songs. It's just Thrice is Thrice, ya know?

I bet you guys with the original pressings can still sell them and some stupid shits on ebay will buy them up not knowing about this reprint. Granted, you aren't going to get a lot, but I'm sure it will be more than the repress.

Fucking god, Beggars sounds nothing like Radiohead. Shut the fuck up with that nonsense.

I'm pretty sure I fell asleep to Beggars the first time I listened to it. The Alchemy Index is pretty solid tho.

Illusion and Artist are probably the closest thing Thrice has come to making a masterpiece. if any albums of theirs are worth repressing its those 2.

"anyone know if this guy is forreal when he's talkin about the ebay?"

considering Relationship of Command goes for 190-250 dollars on ebay, and considering there's definitely a larger number of die hard Thrice fans than ATDI fans, i'm sure it's true.

On this site, yeah, definitely more ATDI die hards. But overall, I've seen way more huge Thrice fans than ATDI. But hey, not an argument, just a comparison of what I've seen Relationship of Command go for and translating it to Thrice sales.

id have to go with this random, sat... pretty sure there are WAY more thrice fans than ATDI fans

as for the definition of "die hard" that's up for grabs

when a band is defunct, the perceived/alleged "die hard" fans always goes through the roof without any way to validate that shit

meanwhile, thrice sells out mid-sized venue after mid-sized venue for like a half decade after doing pretty well on the warped circuit...

yeah but i mean the mars volta plays way huger shows than thrice, and the overlap between their fan base and atdi's is going to be pretty massive.

dumb argument but oh well.

nah i saw them play a solo show at a huge theatre and that shit sold out within a week or so. ended up in like the 30th row. not sure what the capacity was, but i can't picture thrice growing that same size of a crowd (and btw i like thrice and they're one of my favorite live bands)

Beggars is definitely a masterpiece, if any Thrice album is. Alchemy Index had weak points, but still strong overall. Good news.
