Thrice, 'The Alchemy Index, Vols. I & II: Fire & Water' (Vagrant)

Alchemy Index, Vols. I & II: Fire & Water
Critical Mass
Label: Vagrant

by Aaron Burgess

These pop-resistant punk-metal fusionists left Island Records in June over creative differences, but their post-major-label output finds them soaring. Part one of a two-CD, four-volume collection, Fire & Water unhinges the split personality that Thrice previously kept in check, with the seething melancholia of the Fire tracks crashing against the quieter, more esoteric atmosphere of Water. Part Tom Waits meets Isis, part Coldplay as performed by a robot orchestra, the results are fairly stunning.
