Basically I was just wondering what you guys and gals think of Thrice. I really liked the older stuff. The Artist In the Ambulance was ok, but wasn't my favorite. I really don't like the new album, Vehissu (sp?). I have only listened to it once but it turned me off from the get go. I really did not like how almost every song starts of with piano. That just got old. I do love the Image of the Invisible song though. Well, anyways I was just wondering what you guys thought.

I thought Artist in the Ambulance was a great album. I didn't like the two previous efforts at all, because to me they were boring and all sounded the same. Vheissu I have only heard twice and that's because I knew right off the bat they were going in the wrong direction. I wish they would have continued with their style from AITA. Only bad thing I can say is that I really don't like his voice.

When I saw them live they were ohkay, a bit weak, but then they did come on after Circa Survive.

New stuff is alright.

I personally like the new cd the best. I liked the first two alright, TAITA was not very good IMO minus the title song.

I really dig Thrice. They really try to push their work. I was however dissapointed with Vehessieu or w/e. They're idea of change was not a bad idea, their excution however was lacking. I felt like a lot of the songs sounded to much the same, the guitar just lacked to much for me. I felt like Thrice turned into some Radiohead wannabes. On top of that the lyrics lacked so much compared to their previous stuff. AITA had some amazing lyrics, ever read the lyrics to Abolition of a Man? That's deep stuff.

I love them. Vheissu is my favourite album, but I do get where GuitarSymphony is coming from when he calls them Radiohead ripoffs. I though TAITA was very weak, though, except for a couple of songs.

it hurts my brain to understand how people can NOT like thrice. I mean anyone who listens to hardcore or heavier music should be able to appreciate how ahead of the trend they were, perfectly mixing punk and metal since first impressions and identity crisis. Personally my favorite was illusions of safety, every single song is great. and to ppl who say they AITA, yeah it's great, but defnititely give IOS a chance, i mean deadbolt, how much better can it get?

Thrice are the best band existing under the 'hardcore' label. Their music is light years ahead of every other brand of punk or metal. What's great about Thrice is that they don't rely on any of the commercial gimmickry that other punk/metal bands do. The music is just far more mature and honest.
Breath of fresh air.

i love all of Thrice's stuff, identity crisis has to be my favourite record though. i still haven't seen them live yet, are they actually any good? from what i heard from my guitarist (who went to go see them with Coheed, and doesn't really like Thrice), they weren't all that great. may have just had a bad day though, it happens.

i have alot of respect for thrice, their old stuff was amazing but so many new bands are copying their style pretty unsuccesfully they decided to try something newer and maturer and it paid off as after a few listens you realise vheissu is their most mature album to date.

Illusion of Safety is my favorite, and it would be even if it just had TAAATD.

And to whoever, asked, they're great live.

Well when I saw Thrice live they were amazing. They were at Warped last year (yea, yea, bring on the flames) and I absolutely loved them. I pushed through the crowd for a good 15 minutes only to find out that MCR was starting late and almost died when 1,00,000 teeny boppers started pogoing around me. Needless to say I left and came back to see Thrice. Again, they were amazing. They were one of the best bands I saw there and they played alot of their older stuff off of The Illusion of Safety.

One of my favorites EVER. Last time I saw them live was right after TAITA had been released. That was an amazing show.

I can rock Vheissu at certain moment, where their other albums I can put in at anytime and find something that feels right. Teppei is my god.

i just saw them at taste of chaos and i loved them. i love most of there stuff. it took me a few listens to appreciate the new cd. it was only because i was anticipating the sound would sound like heavier thrice stuff. but when i really sat down and listened to it i relized how great they are as musicians. i would say they r one of the more talented bands around today.

I wouldnt go that far. Thrice are moreso screamo even then hardcore, and to call them the best thing ever to exist in the hardcore genre is just absurd.

this is an EMO band


You are kidding right? I hardly think they would consider themselves emo.

These guys are absolutely amazing. And if any of you actually bothered to watch "If we could only see us now" then you would have heard them talk about how they aren't into making the same album twice, so quit asking them to do so. Quite frankly, I think they are some of the best songwriters of our time, and possibly for years to come no matter what they happen to be doing musically at the time. You can actually hear them maturing from album to album. It really is a wonderful thing.

Personnaly, I LOVE thrice. I think they have a lot of great stuff, but yeah, Vhisnu wasn't the greatest. I'm a much bigger fan of Artist in teh ambulence. I still love the new stuff, but Artist is much better.

Mind you, Image of the invisible kicks @$$. Great video, too.

I've heard a few Thrice tracks and they sound pretty average and not as talented as people are making them out to be, but can anybody recommend a few standout songs?

I love Thrice.

I said something in the other Thrice thread about them being great across every album, despite changing sounds. I think that's why I like them, they can do pretty much any sound. Vheissu has to be my favourite though, and this from someone who's been listening to Thrice for a good few years now.

I saw them live in 2003, but it was at Reading Festival, so I don't think it's really the same as a club or 'proper' gig. They were alright, but weren't helped by the tiny, uninterested crowd and looked lost on the big stage (something I actually find comforting because I prefer smaller venues). I met them and they were nice blokes.

Thrice is my favorite band of all time.

Every album is a new experience, and builds upon the foundations laid by the latter album.

Always evolving, always impressing, and they are almost CD quality live.

(Plus, Dustin's lyrics are probably the best out there in modern music.)
