No matter where you stood on the early-aughts emo/hardcore/whatever scene, it’s hard to deny California’s Thrice as a musicalÂ behemothÂ beyondÂ any genres. Early tracks like “Ultra Blue” and “Stare At The Sun” (all of The Artist In The Ambulance really) were huge for me. I fell off the Thrice train after 2005’s Vheissu but was always aware of their new releases and even sampled a track or two occasionally. Well perhaps it’s time I got back on the wagon because “Words In The Water,” from the band’s recently released 8th album Major/Minor, is hitting all the right notes. The slow burn cooks a batch of gentle guitars and tense drums under Dustin Kensrue’sÂ signatureÂ voice, eventually boiling over into a piece of beautifully spacious hard rock that the band has seemed to perfected in their latter years. Plus, almost all the reviews I have seen are high praise. Time to find the record!
