    Has anyone else heard Thrice's Cover of Smashing Pumpkins 1979. I was driving around listening to Octane and all of a sudden an exclusive track and Bam. I can't find a rip of it anywhere. I was wondering if anyone else has heard it or have it. FOUND IT! https://youtu.be/eiWS71G2hZc

    They played The Fillmore in Maryland (DC area), which holds around 2,000 people. Pretty solid venue and crowd size, though I would have preferred they actually play in DC. I thought Gates was a solid opener, but outside of me thinking the singer of La Dispute was cute, I didn't enjoy them much. Their instrumentals are pretty cool, but I can't get over the whole screamed/spoken word thing. Thrice, as per usual, put on a tremendous show. I honestly thought they did a great job with the mixture of songs in the set list. Some of my highlights were Wood and Wire (the live arrangement was randomly awesome) and For Miles. It's funny reading these past few pages, as I've been thinking a lot lately about Thrice's popularity and critical acclaim. I don't think the new album is the best thing they've ever done, but I think it's a solid rock record. I guess I'm in the minority here, but I really enjoyed Beggars and Major/Minor. With the resurgence of a lot of garage rock/punk type bands (Modern Baseball, PUP, Car Seat Headrest, Hoteliers, etc.), I figured they could at least get a review on a prominent site. No dice. However, I think most of you have hit the nail on the head in terms of how they're viewed among the community... just take a look at their 'related artists' on Spotify; This has to be some type of joke. Emery? Armor For Sleep? Funeral For A Friend? Even in their earlier days, they never sounded like any of them, and they are miles above most of those artists talent-wise. However, as Spotify's 'related artists' are calculated through an algorithm of their listeners, I think this points to a much larger problem: their fans. Like most of you here, I do not listen to music like that anymore, sans Thrice (who never really fit and still doesn't). Just taking a look around their concert, though, (and I hate to stereotype..but..), most of their fans seem to still be into that scene. There were a lot people who were under 21 at the show, which surprised me, and overall... I thought the crowd kind of sucked. People were still moshing during every song, and even during the slower jams (why would you mosh during Of Dust and Nations...?). I got there early to stand up close and avoid the pit, but I honestly couldn't avoid it anywhere I went. I was constantly getting shoved, almost falling over, and I even had a few kicks to the head from crowd surfers. I'll take the balcony next time they roll through town. People here were mentioning them playing festivals, but looking around that room, I could not picture that crowd at a big music festival (Coachella, Bonnaroo, Firefly, Governor's Ball...etc.). I know there are some heavier bands at these festivals at times, but I doubt the crowds behave in that manner. Overall, Thrice will always hold a special place in my heart. They're the band that got me heavily into music, and without them, I'm not sure I'd listen to all the shit I do today. Given their history, and their current fan base, I just don't see them getting any further than they are now. I'm simply glad they're still touring and making music.

    I'm still just surprised that everyone has Identity Crisis as their least favourite Thrice record. You guys heard some of that other shit, right? At least they were fun on IC. Don't get me wrong, some if it is just but for what it is at their ages and when it came out, it's light years ahead of what that same group did a dozen years later, to me anyway

    ^that's not saying anything though...I mean, most the people who liked them turned on them around 'Vheissu' . They were into them for their raw heaviness along with most those other similar sounding bands and those casual 'fans' were never going to stick around and like them the same way when they were 15, really, other than a mild passing interest. Most people just aren't going to like music or give it the same time that they did when they were a teen. I feel like if they changed their band name with the release of 'Vheissu' they may not have been pigeonholed so badly...and they'd have more fans, in another way. And if you've been a fan of a band for 15+ years, and you can come away with a couple great songs? That's cool. They're a better band than they were 15 years ago, but not as raw. They peaked 'commercially' for how big they could be, but oh well. I think Brian of Gaslight pointed out with disappointment that on the Billboard top 50, there was only 1 band that had drums, bass, guitars...and it happened to be them. I've said this before... But it's SUPER strange to see a band like Brand New, though, draw a fucking humungous crowd at Boston Calling in 2014 and being co-headliner with Modest Mouse despite having not released anything in 5 years, their best album being released back in 2006 with 'the Devil and God...' and being such an eff you to what came before...only playing 2 songs off 'Deja Entendu' and NOT 'Quiet Things...' and not bothering to play anything off 'Your Favorite Weapon'...and fans still stick with them. Even though I thought 'Daisy' wasn't very good and I think the band admitted that. But then again, Brand New is an east coast band, and I never felt like anybody was into Thrice but me where I grew up, but Brand New was pretty huge before they drifted off. I think Brand New's live shows are just OK: they're super loud/heavy and a giant 'eff you' in a way; Dustin has ZERO charisma whatsoever, but Jesse has even less than him live...and just doesn't care. And Thrice is a much better live band with more accessible songs.

    This album is 8.5/10 captains chairs. oh...hi. good to see we're still alive. EDIT: this was my collection of thoughts on the album's first pass that I put on the Thrice subreddit Hurricane - If you were to play Major/Minor and TBEITBN as one continuous album...could there be a better song to follow up Anthology (and we all pretend that Disarmed doesn't end that album)? Also 1:39 of this song and 1:42 ofListen Through Me ...they like that sound I guess! I really hope they start their new tour with this as their first song. What a comeback! Blood on the Sand - We've had enough time to soak this one in. I knew it wasn't going to be their best song, but it's got that Image of the Invisible-esque catchiness that makes it a solid single choice. The Window - If you wanted to recreate the intro to Radiohead's Paranoid Android in the vein of Thrice, and then took the breakdown from Between the End and Where We Lie, and then ended it with I want to say All the World is Mad? Yeah, it's a chimaera of Thrice and their love affair with Radiohead. Wake Up - This song sounds like a B-side from Beggars, cause it's bluesy as heck - some serious The Weight vibes going on. It's so funny how portentous Vheissu ended up being for their future sound. The Earth Will Shake was like the lynchpin for songs like this and for the entire Beggars album. Especially that breakdown, it's like TEWS's grown-up cousin. The Long Defeat - The Alchemy Index - Air called, they want their song back. Oh man, those vocal harmonies in the chorus, dang son, it's like Broken Lungs is twice as long and we're only now hearing the 2nd half. Seneca - I was like damn this song is brooding and moody, I can't wait for this to kick in...and then it was over Black Honey - As far as singles go, this one is my pick over Blood on the Sand - such a catchy chorus, "do it again til I got what I need" - damn I want to sing that forever. Again, really drawing from their Beggars / Major/Minor style on this one, especially the breakdown. We've heard this one enough to leave it at that. Stay With Me - Like Wake Up, At the Last, Listen Through Me, and Night Diving The Earth Isn't Humming before it, this song will go into the bucket of songs you will never request they play at a live show. Can't win em all... Death from Above - Premiered a few days ago so it's still fresh. The vocals are sweet, really sweet, I really like singing along to this song. It's got some Arsonist vibes going on and I'm okay with it, but with way more melody than anything on Alchemy Index - Fire. I want to say this is the most original song Thrice has made on this album, because it's the hardest one to pin down which previous album it was influenced by, other than occasional Arsonist nod as mentioned above. Whistleblower - Of Dust and Nations 2.0???? Of Dust and Nations 2.0. Salt & Shadow - THE FUCKING SONNETS ARE BACK BABY. ALCHEMY INDEX V, ALL THE FEELS I HAD FOR SILVER WINGS AND THE WHALER COME FLOODING BACK. WHO IS CUTTING ONIONS IN MY LIVING ROOM? WHO CUTS ONIONS IN A LIVING ROOM? Now that I've listened to the album I want to say a dozen times now, here are my even more condensed thoughts: Hurricane still fucking rules. It's a whilrwind of emotion for me, really heavy lyrics. Fun to play on the guitar. Blood on the Sand I'm already over it. I still agree that it's got the same level of cheese that Image of the Invisible did. They choose the worst singles. The Window Is Between the End and Where We Lie and Paranoid Android by Radiohead. I stand by that. I like that this album draws all the way back to Vheissu, and this could totally has been on Vheissu, makes me appreciate that album more. Wake Up is cheese to the max. The lyrics are like what every kid who starts a punk band writes about. It plays because I forget to skip it. The Long Defeat instantly reminds me of why I the Alchemy Index has grown on me as an album, particularly Air. Really melodic and sad sounding, I like that. Seneca is a reference to the philosopher who coined the term of the album: "Who is everywhere is nowhere. When a person spends all his time in foreign travel, he ends by having many acquaintances, but no friends.“ Black Honey grew on me. A lot. Love that the topic is on greed and the mentality of those in power. Death From Above is also growing a lot on me. It's clearly about a US drone bomber (or pilot?) who is disenfranchised by his work and what it stands for. Really intense, which makes me appreciate it much more. Whistleblower is clearly about Snowden. I love the "fuck you" attitude around these lyrics. That second verse: "You told me to keep quiet / that I'd ruin everything / But I'd rather start a riot / Than help you pull those strings / You told me to kneel / But I'll tell the real story". Damn son. Salt and Shadow is the best song on this track - tied with Hurricane because in my mind, they're one song. The ideal scenario is this song plays to start the set of their live tour. Dustin walks on, sings this song...as it ends, the rest of the band walks on stage. Hurricane starts. Everyone wonders who is cutting onions in the crowd. The world is right again.

    Oh. Hi everyone. I must say, I'm pleasantly surprised- I've listened a few times through and am really enjoying every song. Dustbin's non-yelling/screaming voice sounds like it's been through the ringer a few too many times, but I got past that after a few minutes. It's kind of like a catchier version of Major/Minor to me so far. I wish I had heard that Swarm of Bees song before I saw that video. Oh well. I like it, but does the screaming at the end of Blood on the Sand make anyone else laugh? It sounds like he's yelling about a "Licorice Stick" I haven't dug into the lyrics too much, but personally I appreciate that Dustbin took his foot off the gas pedal on the Christian stuff. I miss you guys! I'll try to post more and especially if any of my sports teams are ever good again. I'd be happy to hear from any of you on gchat/gmail.

    So a lot of hype just because new Thrice so this is going to be a little biased. On first/second listen: Hurricane - I thought this was going to be my favorite from the snippets and I was pretty right, only in a different way. I like the mellowed out verses. Especially the second half of the second verse. Blood on the Sand - Heard this one a bunch. Hated it on initial release, but I actually come to like the guitar stuff in it. Still kind of generic, but the way this song kicks in makes me never want to skip it. The Window - Okay, I love the intro on this song. I like the fact that it grooves in the 7 feel, and then does a dance-y kind of beat that still has groove to it. The chorus opening up makes it feel really heavy during the chorus. I love the outro too. Based on the snippets I thought this would be one of my favorite songs too, and I was right, but again for completely different reasons. Most of the snippets seemed to be these big anthemic parts of the song, so we really hadn't heard the grooving quieter verse feels as much, but I'm loving them. Basically my favorite part of this song is the changing dynamics. Feels like something off of Vheissu in that regard. Wake Up - I like this one probably a lot more than most people will. I'm from the south and this sounds like some straight up southern rock. The Long Defeat - I loved the snippet of this they posted, but idk how I feel about the song as a whole. Again, I like the dynamics, but the verse and chorus feel less interesting than the other songs. There's nothing really different between verse 1/verse 2 and chorus 1/chorus 2. Bridge is kind of boring. I like the riff still though. Seneca - Wished the song was longer. It's basically the snippet you hear on facebook just over and over again. Cool and moody, but wish it was longer and changed it up a bit. Was hoping for Night Diving Part 2. Black Honey - I liked it when I first heard it and it fits the record really well. Probably the most polished sounding as a single should be. The only thing that throws me off a bit is the bass riff in the pre-chorus, but it has grown on me. Chorus is one of my favorite things on this album. Stay with Me - I love the verses. Feels like Danny Elfman. And Ed has some pretty sweet bass action. Grooving. Chorus build sounds a little new age worship-ey. Big anthemy parts. Probably one of the weaker ones on the album on my second listen. I would probably stay in for the verses, and skip possibly? Death from Above - Listening to this song the other day was the first hint that this album has some cooler dynamics. Hearing the three songs they released made me realize they were going for a softer verse/heavier chorus thing the whole album. I love this song from start to finish. Love the vocal effects on the whole album and they really shine here. Whistleblower - I don't think I like this song much at all. Boring guitar-wise, and the shouty lyrics are kind of annoying and distracting. Full disclosure, I am not a lyrics guy. Just as long as they aren't completely stupid and repetitive. But seriously, "I'm the whistleblower". Just seems kind of beating it over my head a bit. The second verse bass/drum stuff is probably the most interesting thing in this song. Salt and Shadow - Great song. Definitely water disk Thrice, which was my favorite. I like when they go soft. Overall thoughts - I really think it's a great album. It's very cohesive. One of the things I like about this album that seems to set it apart are dynamics. There are very few "heavy songs" or "soft songs". They kind of all have really nice balance of grooving soft stuff and blistering heavy stuff without feeling out of place from each other. The album reminds me a lot of Vheissu in that respect. Music Box, Like Moths to Flames, Between the End and Where We Lie, Stand and Feel Your Worth, Red Sky, all have this kind of balance that you don't really find as much on Major/Minor or Beggars. Maybe a few songs on those albums like Treading Paper and Promises. But I think this album goes back to the heavier parts feeling a lot heavier than on Major/Minor and Beggars while still maintaining the experimental trends those albums had. Ultimately this feels like a culmination of the last 4 albums with a trend towards Vheissu era dynamics. I think overall the song writing and construction is better though. And I think the production is pretty cool. You can definitely hear the collaborative effort with a producer. Lots of cool ideas with effects.

    Why is being called a cunt so offensive?

    I think it's just generally a nasty sounding word. It's more semantic than anything. You usually only hear it used as in "so and so is a cunt", and not a women using it to actually describe her hoo-ha. Of course, we can change that. Let's start a cunt movement. *edit* or for a different opinion, see post above!

    With the addition of Boldin, Tate hasn't spent any time really in the slot where he traditionally wins. He hasn't been terrible on the outside in the past, but definitely not as strong as in the slot. But honestly, he hasn't really looked like he's been into the games this entire year, either he looks disinterested or actively upset. You can see this come through in a couple dumb penalties he's taken, he's ran wrong routes (forced an INT against the Bears because Staff threw where he was supposed to go), and generally been ineffective otherwise. It doesn't help that Marvin Jones has been getting constant separation too, so he is seeing a ton of targets which he deserves. I think the offensive line being better lends itself more to deeper passes when compared to last few Lions years, which suits Jones more than Tate who was more of a YAC guy catching it around the line of scrimmage. The Lions did a few different things to get him involved yesterday, including having him line up at RB for a few rushes. He still put up a shit line, but maybe this is a sign they are working on getting him going.

    Haha! Pats over Cards without Brady and Gronk... AT CARDS. Jimmy G. looked on poised. Edelman is ready to ball. Amendola shows up for key plays still. Blount took 6 people into the endzone, our D looks really solid for the most part. I felt like James White was underused in the game. Arizona is not great against pass catching backs. Oh well. I love having Ghost. Lastly, I want to give love to Larry Fitz. Unreal hands and clutch as all hell.

    I went to the New York show. I wasn't impressed with their openers, but Thrice hasn't really toured with bands I've liked in almost 10 years, so nothing new there. The guys put on a great show still, aside from pulling out a few records I couldn't have cared less about (Daedalus, Backdraft, IYTC). Also, what's their love for Silhouette? It's not bad but I feel like they've played it at every show -- festival, club or otherwise -- since TAITA. I get that they wanted to play the new shit and chill on the old predictables like Betrayal or UAKM, so switch out those songs I mentioned for like, Come All You Weary, Living Dance, Talking Through Glass, and Blur and I would've loved the show a bit more and would've kept the energy up during the new songs that nobody cared about. Marty, there were no black people at the show you went to because there's like 37 black people in Boston and 11 of them are Celtics.
