Album still blows me away. Has it all: experimentation, heaviness, catchiness...perfect Thrice.
The Alchemy Index Vols. I & II
I usually listen to all four parts together, so these two are pretty much tied. Such a cool concept, great lyrics, instrumentation and variety.
The Alchemy Index Vols. III & IV
Daedalus may be my all-time fave Thrice song.
Probably ranking it this high because it's still so fresh, but damn, this is exactly what I've been wanting from them since they came back! Can't wait for Horizons/West.
The only thing I'm not in love with on this album is the production. Can't say exactly what it is that bothers me...but regardless, the songs are all great.
Took me a long time to warm up to this album, but now I love it.
The Artist in the Ambulance
I'm glad that they changed their sound up after this album because they basically perfected this formula here and dragging it out for any longer wouldn't have been nearly as interesting.
To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere
Great comeback album overall, Hurricane is one of my fave Thrice songs for sure.
A little disappointing, but there are a lot of great songs on here and some cool experimentation. Wish they'd scrapped a couple filler tracks and just combined this with the Deeper Wells tracks initially though.
The Illusion of Safety
I do really enjoy this album, but I got into Thrice long after they'd switched away from this sound, so to me, this album seems kind of like a less impressive Artist in the Ambulance.
I don't even have this album on my ipod anymore to be honest. I remember liking a few tracks, but the production is pretty crap and they've gone on to do so much better. No real incentive for me to come back to this one.
