All three are amazing songs. This just gets better and better.  :tup

Approaching the end here! I'll reveal number one tomorrow (anyone who guesses it can do a Thrice list next).


4. The Earth Will Shake

I don't even know where to start with this song, because I love everything about it.  The music creates such a mood along with the mix of clean and aggressive vocals.  It calms down a bit at around two minutes in, then slowly builds back up.  I love that organ sounding instrument in the background at around 2:47.  From 2:55 to the end of the song is incredible, especially live.  Hearing the whole crowd sing that part during the crescendo is just epic.  I also like how Dustin and Teppei switch back and forth on the screaming lines.  The ending of the song (LOOK TO THE DAY THE EARTH WILL SHAKE, THESE WEATHERED WALLS WILL FALL AWAY) is :2metal:


3. Hold Fast Hope  :yarr :yarr :yarr

Apparently I like this song a lot more than others here (you crazies are trying to vote it off way too soon!).  It's my favorite song from Vheissu.  The whole thing is in 5/4, which is cool.  The lyrics are awesome, and the vocals to this song are very well done.  I love how during the first verse, Dustin and Teppei switch off lines, and then they both sing the 3rd line.  Then in the second verse, they do harmonies instead.  The part at 2:28 (where it's just drums and Dustin screaming) is one of my favorite Thrice moments; it's uncharacteristic of them, but it works very well.  The part right after it (where he continues the screams, and Teppei sings over them) is also cool.  It's one of Thrice's heaviest and most aggressive songs, and it is awesome live.


2. The Weight

This is easily my favorite song off of Beggars.  The lyrics to this song are my favorite Thrice lyrics; they're very well written, have great delivery, and I can relate to them very much at this time in my life.  Along with that, this is also one of my favorite choruses that they have done.  This song has such a raw feel to it, which kind of contrasts the meaning of the song a bit, but it still works very well.

If it's not Daedalus there is no hope for Gwii.

But Gwii's a cool guy, so it's obviously Daedalus.

Come All You Weary

We have a winnar!


1. Come All You Weary

I've loved this song since the first time I heard it, and it quickly became my favorite Thrice song.  Any time I listen to this song, no matter what else is going on, I can calm down and relax for four minutes.  This song is a perfect example of how minimal instrumentation and song writing can go so far.  I love the slow folk/blues feel of it.  Dustin's vocals on this song are one of his most emotive performances; I especially like the chorus.



Why Daedalus didn't make the list:

I've just never been able to get into this song.  I'm listening to it right now, and it's not doing much for me.  The music in the song is pretty cool, but that's about it.  The biggest reason I don't like this song is the lyrics and vocals; they just feel so forced to me (especially the vocals at the end) and I can't get past them.  Singing about mythology is best left to power metal bands.



Full list:

20. In Exile
19. Broken Lungs
18. Don't Tell and We Won't Ask
17. Red Sky
16. Moving Mountains
15. Doublespeak
14. Silhouette
13. The Arsonist
12. Night Diving
11. Stare at the Sun
10. Image of the Invisible
9. All That's Left
8. Music Box
7. Cold Cash and Colder Hearts
6. The Artist in the Ambulance
5. Digital Sea
4. The Earth Will Shake
3. Hold Fast Hope
2. The Weight
1. Come All You Weary



Since Poseidon guessed it, he can do a Thrice list if he wants.  Otherwise, the first person who PM's me can go, and I'll edit the thread and put your name in it.

Thanks for following my list!

I would love to sort of do a dual list with someone else, to see the contrast of taste, seeing as how thrice cover many genres. If anyone is interested in anything of the sort i would be willing to go with it.

@ Poseidon: I'd be willing to do one, though I only have the most recent 3 albums so it might be a little weird (It's not hard to do a top 20 from 45 songs though  :P)
