Editorial Reviews

2011 release, the eighth album from the Alt-Rock band. Major/Minor was tracked and produced by long-time friend and Vheissu mixer, Dave Schiffman at Redbull Studios in Los Angeles. Major/Minor was derived in large part by jam sessions and is quite literally the brain-child of all four band members. Comprised of 11 songs, the album possesses an analog warmth and organic landscape reminiscent of indie-music's predecessor; one of the biggest music trends to come from the underground in the 1990's. That's right, Grunge.

You're going to inevitably read reviews that go something like "Why doesn't Thrice go back to their thrash metal ways?"

The answer is that they have already conquered that mountain. Their music is like wine -- it gets better with time, and nobody puts new wine into old wineskins...

So please don't listen to any reviews that focus on what Thrice isn't, or used to be. This review is about Major/Minor, but I will say that there are moments that hark back to Vheissu (Treading Paper has a movement that really reminds me of Of Dust and Nations) and Beggars (the organic feel of Beggars continues in Major/Minor, but things are a bit more polished with M/m).

This is incredibly mature songwriting, both lyrically and musically. Kensrue's lyrics are poetic and profound. The music, written collaboratively, must have been written with the lyrics in mind, because the combination of music and word is seamless. Each song seems to be a study in contrasts, which makes the title Major/Minor very fitting. My favorite contrast is explored most explicitly in Words in the Water.

Personal favorites (so far): Blinded, Treading Paper, Words in the Water, Blur, Call It in the Air.

You don't need to be a Thrice fan to like this. You just have to like good music.

This band seems to be able to change their sound, and do it well, every single album. This quality is very rare in a band, and says loads about their talent. Major/Minor delivers such a wide array of rock from start to finish, and its quite entrancing. Don't expect to hear any synth on this record, just raw guitar greatness. Dustin's vocals are absolutely incredible, and the band as a whole has done a fantastic job with this one. Check out "Treading Paper", "Listen Through Me" and "Disarmed".

If you are a Thrice fan, you know what I'm about to say.....I know you've come to expect greatness.

I said it in my last Thrice review for the Album "Beggars", it is a real pleasure to watch these guys grow from album to album. The fact of the matter is Thrice has knocked it out of the park with "Major/Minor". The intensity of this album both lyrically and musically is unmatched in their catalog thus far. That is saying alot, I know, but after the first spin of the album I just felt like something different is happening hear....EVERYTHING WORKS.

I first noticed it with Dustin's vocal delivery. Know Dustin has always been a powerful singer, and no stranger to releasing emotion, however on this album the honesty and connection to the material is just masterful, he means every single word he says and sings. You can't argue that.

Next, THE GUITARS, where do I start, well, they take it to the next level, sound spectacular, and never let it up.

The 1st time I fully disgested Thrice's album Vheissu back in 2005/2006, I thought to myself, okay this is their masterpiece how can they possibly keep this up in the years to come. Well they certainly have from album to album in the years since, and come dangerously close to topping Vheissu here with Minor/Major. But, I dont want to get into comparing the albums, they are seperate projects anyway, and this one is GREAT in it's own way.

Powerhouse performances from all envolved. Good Job Thrice. Again.

Like "Beggars", I had to give Major/Minor a couple of playthroughs to really form an opinion on it - mainly because both albums have been drastically different from their earlier work (which is what I was a fan of initially). I can see how it would turn some of their fan base off, since there aren't any "heavy" songs on Major/Minor, but true fans of Thrice know that the band is devoted to constantly exploring, pushing, and destroying their boundaries.

Better reviews than mine have covered the musicality of the album, but what really blew me away was the songwriting. Some of the lyrics are incredibly brave, especially the track "Listen Through Me". And, as usual, when I really listen to (not just hear) what Kensrue is saying, it's absolutely breathtaking.

Thrice has yet to disappoint (except for not coming anywhere near my city for their current tour this year).

As a singer-songwriter I think these are all very well crafted songs and were recorded really well but they really don't do much for me. There was not much about this album that made me feel like picking it up again to let it really sink in. This could be an album that requires about 2-3 full listens through to fully understand and enjoy, or maybe I just didn't have the attention span at the time to do so. I only caught myself yearning to listen to a few tracks on this release and quickly forgot about it. Don't get me wrong I love Thrice's music but if you want something to compare my opinion to my favorite albums are "The Artist In the Ambulance" and "Vheissu" that should give you a starting point of where I am basing my opinion off of.

Another awesome album from the Orange County boys of Thrice. Puts you in a mood that won't let you go till well after the music has stopped. Worth every penny (and more) for any fan of Thrice or anyone who wants to hear excellent music that has substance far beyond instruments, melody and lyrics. Oh yeah, and just as a bonus, the packaging/album art is beautiful. Buy it right now.

Almost 3 weeks with the album and if I had to choose a favorite song or one to recommend, it'd go to "Call it in the Air". Do us all a favor and check it out...and follow the band on Twitter at @OfficialThrice.
