Biography

Thursday have always been difficult to categorize. Although they famously rose out of New Brunswick, New Jersey’s basement culture they’ve always been far too cerebral to be considered a traditional hardcore band. Over their eleven-year career they’ve toured with everyone from the Cure to Cursive, but have retained an inherent aggressiveness that can only come from being ...

by now you have probably heard the band thursday, who are from the flourishing new jersey scene. they're one of the many fresh new faces to rise with the whole "emo explosion" *rolls eyes* but not ALL of the band who are being tagged with the label "emo" are bad. for the purists, much of the mainstream bands are disregarded and left to the MTV crowd to eat up and call their own. it's considered "not cool" to like a band that has appeared in a mag, is on the radio or tv. PUT ALL THAT BEHIND YOU.
i would probably describe this album, and thursday, as melodic post-hardcore. one of the first things i noticed about this album is it is lyrically influenced by the band joy division (see the track ian curtis) which is a favorite of singer/songwriter geoff rickly. the style on this album differs from full collapse. for one it is more lo-fi sounding and not quite as heavy but equally amazing. keep in mind that the members were still learning their instruments during 'waiting' but this is a good album to document the tremendous amount of growth between the two records. i can't wait to see what they put out next.
one cannot deny that amidst all the generic trendy screamo/pop-punk bands thursday have the greatest, most thought provoking, lyrics of them all. probably my favorite track is 'where the circle ends'. who would of known a song with spoken words put to a mellow melody could possibly be that powerful? in addition to the wonderfully crafted poetic-like lyrics i also enjoy the music technique they use where they draw the listener in by slowly building the suspense until the song just explodes into a million pieces accompanied by painful shrieks and wails in the background. but this style is more so seem throughout full collapse.

5.0 out of 5 stars My ohh my March 29, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Thursday is what you call a band.
In my opinion, "Waiting" is just as good as "Full Collapse." I love to hear where a band got it's sound from.
"Waiting" is filled with more post-hardcore sounds, and not as many screams as "Full Collapse." If the background screams turned you off of their second cd, you might want to check this one out. Some highlights of the cd are "Porecelain", "This Side of Brightness" (which you can download off of their MP3.com website), and "Dying in New Brunswick." Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Waiting May 16, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Porcelain -(5/5)- This song is very good, it took a few listens for me to really appreciate it. But I love the chorus and the vocals. The lyrics can really hit home too.
"When people die, they take a piece of us with them."
This Side of Brightness -(3/5)- This song is good, but I've just never fell in love with it yet, maybe I need to listen to it a few more times. It's just a good song, nothing that special happens.
Ian Curtis -(5/5)- I love this song. It's a little bit different than the other songs on the album, slighly more poppy I guess. The lyrics are deep and the ending is really cool.
Introduction -(no need for rating)- Just a nice introduction to the next song.
Streaks in the Sky -(5/5)- This is my favorite song on the CD. I love the sounds of the guitars with the drums and vocals. The chorus is really awesome.
In Transmission -(5/5)- This song starts off softer and then builds into a harder sound and slows back down. This is what I love about Thursday, they're so unpredictable.
Dying in New Brunswick -(4/5)- This is overall a great song, but it's nothing new to what's already been on the CD. And it is very similar to In Transmission, which is a better song.
Dotted Line -(4/5)- Again, nothing that special about this song, but it is still amazing.
Where the Circle Ends -(5/5)- A soft song where Geoff speaks the lyrics, I love this song and the lyrics are great.
Some people who maybe have only heard War All the Time or Full Collapse may not like this CD as much because it's not as well produced, ect. Or if you're a first time listener to Thursday this may not seem that great, I would recommend picking up Full Collapse or War All the Time first. However, this is a great album and after a few listens you'll fall in love with it. I'd highly recommend picking it up.

4.0 out of 5 stars How can you hate thursday? June 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
yea, so i bought their other cds and i thought they were amazing. A lot of kids call thursday posers. How can they be a poser band? They pretty much pioneered this type of music. This album was revoltuionary to the whole New Jersey scence as well as the whole screamo/punk scene in general. This album actually shows screaming as a viable music form. this album was recorded raw-nothing fancy. if you like all the fancy studio stuff, chances are you are just another poser trying to be in the scene. this album is how music should be made:recorded-not produced. The only thing that needs work is Geoffs voice, which has improved on their other albums. To be honest I cant wait until thursday's next cd. If you hate thursday then you must hate music in general.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, yet.... August 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Still a very good album. "Waiting" is a perfect example of what Thursday has the potential to do. This album illustrates how good Thursday can be, and is even more obvious after listening to War All the Time and Full Collapse. The album starts off with a song called Porcelain, and right from the beginning these guys set the stage for a good album. Porcelain starts up this band which is, even in this album, not filled with whining and crying about girls, and this trend is continued throughout the next albums. I would rate the songs of this album as followed:

Porcelain: 9/10 Nice introduction.

This Side of Brightness: 9/10 Geoff shows off softer vocals.

Ian Curtis: 9/10 Maybe the most scremo song on the album.

Introduction: Instrumentals.

Streaks in the Sky:9/10 Nice song after some instrumentals.

In Transmission: 8/10 Some pretty cool guitar parts.

Dying in New Brunswick: 9/10 Geoff mixes screaming with casual singing

Dotted Line: 8/10 Not my favorite song on the album.

Where the Circle Ends: 10/10 For some strange reason, this is my favorite song on this album, even though Geoff is not singing, but talking over some catchy instrumentals.

Overall though, this is a great album. I enjoyed this album just as much as any other CD that I have ever listened to, and, in truth, I say this ranks closer to 4.5 stars rather than 4.

"Porcelain" is a raging song against suicide, and is followed by the sweeping, cathartic "This Side of Brightness," which to dates remains one of Thursday's top five singles. Read more
