(Album Therapy Reviews): “Horizons/East” by THRICE

One of the most mindblowing bands I have ever feasted my ears upon, Thrice, has released their latest record entitled “Horizons/East” via Epitaph Records.  Thrice once again writes the playbook on how to create a record that sounds enormous, different, and all the while not straying too far from the path for the Thrice diehards out there.

“The Color of the Sky” about knocked me out of my chair when drummer Riley Breckenridge lays down his insane drum fills, and “Scavengers” just sounds insanely heavy with the thick guitar riffs by Teppei Teranishi and influential frontman Dustin Kensrue.  The instrumental break in “Scavengers” takes the listener to a whole new dimension.  “Buried In The Sun” tells the tale of the atrocities of war from the perspective of the refugee, making it highly emotive and you can feel the anger from Dustin Kensrue so much that hair stands on the back of your neck.  And if you thought you’d never hear Thrice do a jazz number, check out “Northern Lights”, just when you think they can’t master a new challenge for themselves, achievement unlocked for Thrice, and that’s creating a freaking jazz number.

The beautiful thing about Thrice is each record has their own theme.  Whether it’s from the elements of Earth from “The Alchemy Index” to interrelatedness in “Horizons/East”, each album Thrice does takes you on an incredible journey.  Once again, you’re not listening to Thrice just to be listening to music, you’re listening to a novel in a music world filled with magazines when you’re listening to Thrice.  I’ve always called Thrice “the thinking person’s alternative rock band” and this record is certainly no exception.  Pick up “Horizons/East” and contemplate with me when you’re listening to one of the greatest out there in Thrice.
