Album Review: Alchemy Index – Fire and Water, by Thrice

leave a comment »

My vote for best thing in freakin’ ever: Fire and Water by Thrice.

This ‘double EP’ is the first half of the Alchemy Index and, in my opinion, the slightly better of the two releases. It’s pretty much amazing. Pretty much every dang song is a 5-star effort, with incredible writing and performance. The album is divided into two halves themed around the ‘elements’ fire and water, respectively. The songs fire side are more intense and heavy, relying on unusual time signatures and impassioned lyrics for its power. The water side however, features slower, melodic songs that employ drum machines, piano, and synthesizers. These songs are emotionally gripping and beautifully preformed, arguably  some of the best I’ve ever heard.
In short, it’s freakin’ amazing.

Here’s a link to buy on iTunes. It’s even DRM-free. Go on, do it.
