2007-10-19thrice after listening to the sweet syrupy sounds of stars on constant rotation yesterday, i got thrice's most recent album today. i needed some post-hardcore just to balance things. (i've also been back to listening to circle takes the square.)
i was introduced to thrice when a classmate lent me some cd's. i had found the music tolerable, but nothing more. now, they're releasing a 4-ep concept album "the alchemy index", one for each of the elements. and i am such a sucker for stuff like that.
"vol. i & ii: fire & water" was released this week. the "fire" disc is passable, nothing too special. without a doubt, i much prefer the "water" disc. it is more ambient, with more textures, and some experimental elements. much more interesting.
