Thrice's Magnum Opus

The Alchemy Index Vol. I & II comprises the first half of what is, highly likely to be, one of the most ambitious and amazing projects you'll ever hear. That doesn't mean it's perfect - you'll like some songs more than others, to be sure - but as a whole this is the most breathtaking album I've ever listened to. I'm serious; sit down with an open mind and listen to both discs uninterrupted. Follow Kensrue's lyrics while you listen. If these discs don't resonate with you, nothing will. As should be obvious, this is not a simple CD. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who doesn't have the time or patience for it. It yields something new every time you listen to it. Sonically both discs are solid representations of their elements. Listening to one enhances the other. They are utterly different but perfect compliments. Lyrically, Kensrue is still a genius. It's not even flattery anymore. He's been doing this for so long that it's simply a fact. There is so much to say about an album like this that it's pointless to even start, so I'll finish by saying this; This is Thrice's magnum opus. You owe it to yourself to listen.

Qualité, Évolution et Nostalgie! ne m'attendais à rien de moins d'un groupe comme Thrice qui a un aussi grand potentiel musical! ''Alchemy Index'' a pour thématique les 4 éléments (Feu, Eau, Terre, Air). Nous retrouvons ''Fire'' et ''Water'' dans cet album et nous retrouverons ''Earth'' et ''Air'' dans un autre album quelque part au printemps. ''Fire'' a de quoi plaire aux plus nostalgiques puisqu'il se rapproche beaucoup des premiers albums du groupe avec un son punk aggressif et explosif. ''Water'' est beaucoup plus froid avec un son mélodique dans lequel on y retrouve une touche électronique. Ceux qui n'ont pas aimé ''Vheissu'' pcqu'il ne buchait pas assez ne devrait pas plus aimer ce cd. Je dirais que ''Atlantic'' est la pièce qui se rapproche le plus de ce que l'on retrouve sur ''Water''. ''Night Diving'' est une pièce entièrement instrumentale franchement impressionnante!! Bref, Thrice nous offre un album de qualité dans lequel on retrouve un excellent mélange d'évolution et de nostalgie. ''Earth'' sera un album plus acoustique alors que ''Air'' reste encore un gros point d'interrogation pour moi mais je peux vous garantir que ''Alchemy Index Vol III-IV'' devrait être tout aussi bon que cet suffit seulement d'être ouvert d'esprit musicalement pour apprécier toute la variété que nous offre ''Alchemy Index'' que peut de groupe serait capable de nous offrir!!

Another incredibly ground breaking album.

The Alchemy Index is a chillingly, creative masterpiece. The idea of releasing 4 themed albums alone is worthy of creative praise, but the unique sound and skillfull songwriting is even more. Fire is the next step after Vehissu, with intensity and passion. Water is a unique experimental opus; chilling and downright brilliant at times. Thrice continues to pave the way for a new genre that is creating shockwaves throughout the industry. Its the kind of album that will remain in my playlist for years to come. The Arsonist, The Flame Deluge are personal favorites on FIRE Digital Sea, Open Water, Night Diving, and The Whaler are favorites notable on WATER


Formed: 1998 in Irvine, CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

The post-hardcore quartet Thrice formed in 1998 in Irvine, California. Guitarist/vocalist Dustin Kensrue, guitarist Teppei Teranishi, bassist Eddie Breckenridge, and drummer Riley Breckenridge all knew each other from high school and the neighborhood skate park, and the usual round of practices, music competitions, and local gigs helped hone their new band's sound. By late 1999, Thrice had amassed enough material to cut a proper record. Working with Death by Stereo's Paul Miner, the quartet recorded...
