Thrice - Major Minor PO


Recommended Posts

Lol. Am I the only one who feels The Illusion Of Safety is their best?

A perfect melodic hardcore album. So fast, so aggressive, so technical, so creative.

The Illusion Of Saftey made my 14 year old self a way better guitar player. Endless nights of mastering The Beltsville Crucible really did me in.

Agreed. I'm probably in the minority but I rarely listen to pre Vheissu thrice

 

Same here. I started listening to Thrice when Identity Crisis came out, and loved each album as they came out. But, to me, while I still really like TIOS and TAITA, and they have a lot of nostalgia for me, they feel much more...juvenile sounds too derogatory, but something like that. I feel like they grew as a band as my musical interests matured. I really only listen to their albums before Vheissu when I'm feeling nostalgic. I feel like if they were to write anything similar in nature to TIOS or TAITA, it would be a huge step back for them musically. That being said, those early albums still mean a lot to me.

TIOS is far and away my favorite Thrice album. Artist is a distant second then Identity Crisis and Vheissu after that. Never really cared for anything after that nearly as much as those first 4 records.

Thought I couldn't like you any more, but I guess the world is a pretty unpredictable place!

Is Vheissi right around the time you started getting into Thrice? If so, I could understand that.

The exact time. I sometimes listen to TAITA as well, but rarely. It's still a great album.

The first time I saw Thrice was at Warped Tour before Vheissu dropped. They were teaching the crowd how to sing Image of the Invisible. That's so funny to think back on.

I think I've stood next to you at a Thrice show or two.

I apoloigize, I should've made it clearer that I was attempting to make a joke- albeit a bad one. I'm usually the one at the show who is having watery light beer spilled all over them by someone shouting "PLAY DEADBOLT!" 

All poor jokes and passive-aggressive complaining aside, I'm really looking forward to whatever they release next. That being said, I'm an avid all of their previous efforts as well.

I think I caught your angle; my post was also a jab at the frat boys who can't seem to get over that track. It's always a treat to see live, but it's hardly the reason to catch Thrice, for me.

100%

 

Also, I unfortunately missed them when they played most recently in Chicago (for both riot fest and the after show) due to a wedding that weekend; massive, massive bummer. A good friend of mine who attended bought a PLAY DEADBOLT shirt for me because he knows how much I appreciate those folk.
