Sounds pretty good, I should go back and listen to Thrice. It's been forever since I put on album on.

No Minneapolis date on their upcoming tour. That sucks.

I got into Thrice basically just before they went on hiatus. I remember walking past their gig while they were playing a festival I was at, just because I thought they were just 'alright' at the time. A decision I went on to regret for years.

So the 17th of June 2018: There we were. And they were simply amazing. Starting off with Hurricane, the sound and energy was great, and Dustin sounded as good if not better than studio. Highlight after highlight, and suddenly my mate and I were discussing how great it would be if they'd play our favorite track (Daedalus). It was at that very moment when the band actually started to play Daedalus. My goodness. Seriously, a transcendent experience.

This is just that WOW factor that I'm always looking for when going to a concert. I like a lot of bands and I go to a lot of gigs. But there's only a few of them that can convey a true sense of 'magic' or you know, that 'higher' feeling. Maybe it has something to do with the religious undertones (I'm not religious myself), but Thrice just have IT. Definitely the best concert I've been to in 2018, and it's unlikely to be topped.

Welcome, and Iím glad you understand how amazing they are live. You hit it on the head when you said they create magic, cuz itís stupid how great they are live! Iím always dying to talk to more hardcore fans of this band, cuz I seriously cannot get enough. Bring on that new album!

This track is just incredible, I can't stop listening to it. WAY better than The Grey. Literally every single melody is a statement of intent, you can just feel the song building. Awesomely intensifying arrangement that culminates in an amazing explosion of heaviness. But the greatest thing going for it, for better or worse, is that ultra simple chorus melody. This band should be playing stadiums, I can just hear thousands of people belting this one out like their lives depend on it.

I agree with everything you said.

New album, Palms is out today. Giving it my first listen now. My initial reaction so far is that I like it, but I wish it was heavier. It mostly sounds like stuff that would have fit well on TBEITBN.

Iíve listened to it a few times already and I enjoy it a lot! Favorites are Beyond The Pines, Everything Belongs, and Only Us. I just wish the songs were longer; I feel that they couldíve extended the cooler parts of the songs a bit more, some of them end a little abruptly. But I like how this album is completely different than the last one. Canít wait to see them next month, this tour is gonna be great!

Not a lot of interest in the new Thrice album? I thought there were a bunch of fans here.

After 3-4 listens, my original impressions still hold. I like the album a lot, but I wish it were heavier. I've thought that about the last few albums though, so it's unlikely I'll ever get my wish. Still need to give it more listens on a louder sound system than just my earbuds at work to get a really great impression of it.

Thrice is one of my favorite bands. I listened to the new album when it came out and it is ok, just like the last one was ok. They no longer blow my mind. I wish I could say otherwise.

I'm with you to an extent. I've still very much enjoyed the last few albums, but they're definitely not as good as their best. There are always a few songs I really like and some that are just OK. I think my biggest disappointment is that after altering their sound quite a bit with each album up through Beggars, every album since Beggars has had the same basic sound. They're different enough to be interesting, but after setting us up to expect the unexpected with each now album, that has been a bit of a disappointment. As I've said already, I'd love for them to return to a heavier sound for an album, TBEITBN was a slight step heavier, but now Palms is less heavy again. Thrice is still one of my top 3 bands and I still lvoe getting new music from them, but it would be nice to be blown away by one of their albums again.

I tried listening to the album today at work and I almost got through it. Started off strong with 'Only Us' but at some point there was a song that put me off so much I stopped altogether (A Branch In The River). The rest of the album wasn't bad but just sounded like more TBEITBN, but that one is honestly the first Thrice song I heard that I genuinely find bad (I don't know all their albums though). Maybe I'll give the album another chance some time but currently not rating it.

As strong as the opening track is, this album at the moment disappoints my high expectations. I donít have a rational explanation yet, but compared to what Thrice is capable of.. Iím not that impressed.

Listened through the new album a couple of days ago and it was ok. Probably bottom tier Thrice album for me.

It definitely is the weakest of the all the post-Alchemy Index albums no doubt. But I still enjoy it from front to back. IMO, these guys donít have a bad album.
