This is gonna be a bonafide worship album people I hope that doesn't offend all the delicate anti-god sensibilities here. With that being sad I saw this an hour ago and I was actually moved. I think maybe 2 songs have done that to me before. Excellent song

Who gives a shit if it's a religious album. My ears don't care if Christianity is stupid.

Wow that song is super moving. I normally don't listen to worship music for it's lack of creativity especially the vapidity of the lyrics sometimes I think there are a lot better ways of saying "God is the greatest or I love God" than just singing that. That song is probably more moving than any Thrice song I've heard. Probably. Awesome any ways.

I loathe religion and shit but I absolutely love Dustin and if this song is any indication of the overall quality of the new record, I am beyond stoked

I bet you guys will change your tone real quick if he ever mentions God more than once in a song lol. I can listen to that voice all day though.

He talked about God all the time in Thrice and they're still the best band in the universe so nah

Calc, if only two songs have moved you, you must be real hard to move, or you don't listen to enough moving music, dude. I agree that this is moving ,though, for sure.

This is pretty beautiful. I'm not even close to into Christian-y lyrics or worship stuff, but Dustin is a really earnest songwriter, and seems like an intelligent guy, so I can appreciate his expressing his feelings and beliefs.

This was a pretty powerful song and video, and although I'm very firmly not Christian there's enough that's relatable for it to
mostly work

(also, thrice only got super Christian towards the end, it was far more ambiguous until after The Alchemy Index)

Vheissu had plenty of straight Christian stories and themes

When did they record Lullaby? Cause...

"No heaven above us
Just mile after mile of empty sky.

No right or wrong
Can you imagine?"

Not to mention Image of the Invisible is as unambiguous as is possible.

I think Lullaby was a Vheissu era track, which reminds me of Weight of Glory being a Jesus song too

Yeah, Vheissu has Image of the Invisible, For Miles, Hold Fast Hope and Like Moths to Flame which all have overtly Christian themes and stories. Moths to Flame is a step-by-step retelling of Peter's denial of Jesus on the night of Jesus' arrest and Hold Fast Hope is told from Jonah's perspective.

Song is pretty cool, though I think there are a ton of better Thrice songs.

His voice just seems to get better with age, but I am not a huge fan of any of his solo stuff that I have heard so far.

It's hard to think of Thrice songs I enjoy more than this to be honest, maybe Disarmed and the Earth Will Shake but this is surely up there with the best stuff he's ever done. Just phenomenal.

To be fair, I've never paid enough attention to the bible to notice some of those things. That sort of stuff just washes over me and I naturally apply my own world view to the lyrics, so they generally take on fairly different meanings in my head. But yeah, they had Christian themes buti dunno, never felt as in my face/down my throat as Major/Minor (which is still one of my favourites of theirs).

Song is decent. Definitely not as good as most of Thrice's stuff pre-Beggars. Looked at the track listing though, this is probably gonna smell of religious bullshit all over. Kinda tragic given how much I love Thrice, but this is what Dustin wants

The track listing definitely makes this sound horrible but it *is* being released by a Christian label. I trust Dustin enough that the tunes will still be great regardless of the religious tones

He's a worship pastor now? Wicked.

Hey, I'm going to be perfectly honest - if all Christians were like Kensrue I wouldn't have a problem with the religion.

He's been worship leader for a long time now.
I don't think this is any more christian than the lyrics in Thrice. We all know what he's pointing at
but he doesn't mention it once and everyone can agree with what he's saying.

His lyrics have always been about religion and god, but in Thrice, he writes them in a less direct manner, which is why I've always loved his lyrics. I took totally different meanings from a lot of songs which were probably about religion. Art is open to interpretation. I think he purposely is being more direct on his solo stuff. I think this will be even more so (obviously) than Please Come Home. Though I also think he'll eventually do another folky album like that one. Song is moving stuff regardless. And I think there is still some messages one can take from the lyrics not religion related.

This guy just keeps getting better and better. I'm fine with some worship music. While Thrice wasn't an outright Christian band, a lot of the lyrics definitely felt like worship music. I like a lot of worship bands, namely Hands and Everything In Slow Motion. I'll definitely pick up this album. Incredible song.

Wow, you're right. I didn't bother to look at the tracklist and I'm actually scared now. Grace Alone is a really average track, if it's the same as The Modern Post's.

The best solo song he ever did. It's too good to be real, holy moses.

I know, someone's seeing what I did there, but idc.

I've noticed a lot of feelings and sentiments from people saying this song is depressing. On the surface, I could see how people could see it this way but actually this song is really optimistic. Kensrue is being open and honest that everything the world has to offer being pointless and leaving him feeling empty. But according to biblical standards, the realization of this could possibly be the best thing to happen to you. The bible alludes to really understanding the importance of Jesus and what he did when you are essentially at rock bottom and desperate for change. So in reality this song is pretty optimistic to me. But that's just me.

I wouldn't call it optimistic but I agree with anything else.

Song is amazing but I don't get why people keep labeling this as worship music, it's a far cry from
songs like How Great Is Our God, etc.

Major/Minor had more direct references to God than this song does,(i.e. Listen Through Me) and Thrice
has never been labeled as a Christian band that I've seen.

Mark Driscoll (pastor where Dustin leads worship) posted this song on his FB...so many people complained that he didn't end the song by saying that Jesus was enough...

...I feel like it's pretty obvious what he's trying to say...
