To start off Thrice is like the sweetist band and as soon as you put the cd in the first song will blow you away. Althuogh the songs are not quite as "hardcore" as their other cds such as less screaming, But dont think that takes away form the over all quality of the cd. Such as the main song "Artist In The Ambulance" takes it down some to give the lyrics a better feel.

THRICE matched both the music and lyrics perfectly. They give you lyrics that you have to think about almost like poetry in song but have the meaning of the band and their backround. To really give you that feel like your living their life. Plus the singer pulls every thing together with a perfect harmony.

Thrice and Atreyu do compare but I personaly think that Thrice would win the all around battle. This is one of thoes cds that when you buy it you dont walk around all day repeting one or two songs, because every song on this album is even better than the last. If I ever lost it I would definitly buy it again.
