I heard about thrice from my counselor at camp. I only heard a identity crisis, and under par, but that was enough for me to go out and buy it. I was suprised on how awesome this album was, and it was their first. All of the songs are great (except for number 7) and identity is better then the illusion of saftey and the artist in the ambulance.
identity crisis-a great way to start off the album, nice 8/10
pheonix ignition-starts of acoustic and then goes hard 8/10
in your hands-to me, it's one of the worst, but still good 7/10
to what end-one of my favorites on this album, harder song 9.5/10
ultra blue-kind of a break from the harder stuff, has a great begiinning 8/10
as the ruin falls-awesome song, but it's too short 8/10
the next day-uhhhh....it's not really a song, it's sounds like rain on a window
a torch to end all torches-solid song, weaker then the rest 7/10
unquestioned answers-good song 7/10
under par-my favorite song on the album, starts off with carnival music, and it's probably the hardest song on the album, good job guys 10/10
t&c-cool song, one of my favorites 9/10
i think this is better then the other two, and deserves 5 stars

A seamless blend of cruching Metallica-inspired riffage and emotional hardcore at its most melodic. Lead singer Dustin Kensrue's voice moves effortlessly from melodic singing to passionate screaming, and the lyrics show an intelligence and insight rare in modern bands, with To What End being one of the best examples of the band's ability to articulate themselves. It's a pity that the subtleties of the lyrics have a tendency to be lost amidst the music, but you're never left in any doubt of the passion and conviction behind the songs.
The melody of the opening title track is simply irrestible, and the variation in their music is demonstrated by the second track Phoenix Ignition, which opens like an acoustic ballad and then develops into the heaviset song on the album, remaining powerful yet melodic. Other highlights come towards the end, with the powerful Torch To End All Torches, the memorably melodic Unquestioned Answers and Under Par showing their metal influences, before finishing on a high with Teppei's solo in T&C.
My main grip with the album is that it finishes too early, with 11 fairly short tracks, one of which (The Next Day) is a simple 1 minute instrumental which really can't be considered a song at all. Still, at least it means there isn't a surplus minute on the album, and packed into a short space of time you get enough brilliant songs to persuade you to hit the repeat button. You're not being short-changed here. Even the poppier songs like Ultra Blue (which the band claim to hate) and In Your Hands have a heavy underpinning and don't get irritating. In fact, it's a pity that todays "pop punk" merchants don't write songs more like Ultra Blue.

I never heard of these guys until a got a reccomendation from someone at my school to listen to them. I really didn't know what to expect going into this cd, but in the end, I was very impressed, like the time I heard Junction 18 for the first time. These guys have a very unique sound to them. The same person who told me to listen to them said they sounded like Thursday. In a way, they do, but that's not a very good comparison to make about them. For one, they have a much, much punkier sound then Thursday. Thursday is more of a hardcore emo band. Two, they are much faster than Thursday. Thursday has much more of a slower, flowing pace to them. These guys always have a pretty fast pace in their songs. The only comparision I can make about the two groups is that both their lead singers can go from singing to screaming instantly. I've always liked when bands do that, It adds more intensity to their songs. Anyhow, this is a really good cd, and Thrice has an original, good sound that will pull you into the cd.
Like Thursday's lead, their singer can go from singing to screaming in seconds. Along with the fast pace, it goes very well. They remind me mostly of AFI, another band that intertwines singing and screaming at a fast pace. Anyhow, I really should stop making comparisions, I'm just trying to think of ways to describe their sound. The lyrics on this cd are very good, well written and deep, especially on the title track "Identity Crisis".
The guitar and basslines are also very good, keeping the pace nice and fast and having a harder edge to them. The drum work is also good, setting the pace very well. Also look out for some nifity guitar solos in "To What End" and "T & C".

I am sad to say that this is the last album that i bought by Thrice because it is better than their newest release, The Artist In The Ambulance, which is still a great album.
This particular album has some of thrice's best work. The only thing i dont like is "The Next Day", which seems like a waste of disc space that could have been used for another kick-butt song. My personal favorite songs are "Identity Crisis", "Ultra-Blue", and "T&C", all of which have some awesome guitar riffs. One song that is particularly interesting, though, is "Phoenix Ignition". At first i thought, "wow, thrice has an acoustic song." i soon found that to be false, as the acoustic feint at the beginning leads into one of the harders songs that thrice has out their, second only to "Paper Tigers" off of The Artist In The Ambulance".
Is a must-have for any Thrice fan or music-lover alike becuase that is what you get, great music by a great band.
