Thrice - The Alchemy Index Vols. I + II: Fire & Water
Now playing:Artist: Thrice
Album: The Alchemy Index Vols. I + II: Fire & Water (buy)
Track: Open Water (listen)The open water chills me to my bones, but it’s the only place that I feel alive.
I’m fascinated by rivers and the sea so it’s no surprise that I’m a sucker for songs about them. The Alchemy Index has Thrice going in a slightly different direction yet again, and they produced the album themselves. The "Fire" disc is hard rock, not unlike some earlier Thrice but more rough and raw. "Water" is where the real experimentation happens, being mostly acoustic and electronic as opposed to hard rock. And as with their previous albums, the result is fantastic.
