4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive. Oct. 15 2005
By Ethan
Format:Audio CD
My view on the CD (hey, if you dont like what I have to say, don't read it)
Track 1: Really good, not at all slow to start. A great opening track.
Track 2: A bit too melodic for me, but nice guitar work. Lyrics could have been a bit better, but as the song pregresses, it gets better.
Track 3: Not too crazy about the intro, but once you get into it, it's really good.
Track 4: Great song. Love the intro, and it really draws you in.
Track 5: Feels a bit too much like they were trying to write a single. Original intro, though...
Track 6: Wow, this track came as a surprise. It pulses with pure fury. You have to listen to it a few time to get used to the full-on sceaming. Chilling outro.
Track 7: Feels as if it will be a continuation of Trk. 6, but it's not, yet it's still a great song. Fells a tad emply, but that's probably because track 6 was so moving.
Track 8: Okay, yet again, feels empty, and too melodic.
Track 9: Great break from the now-melodic style of the past few songs. You'll never get tired of it.
Track 10: Dissapointing. Sounds like something you would hear on a pop radio station. Skip this song. Please.
Track 11: Amazing. Perfect. Especially the last 30 or so seconds. It feels as though THIS track sould have been the closer, not Trk. 12
Track 12: Good, but not for the last song of the CD (it should have been track 111, but that's not Thrice's fault...)

3.0 out of 5 stars mediocre at best July 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
why is everyone giving this cd such rave reviews??? maybe because they changed their sound to be so much more acsesable to a larger audince, so more people will listen and like. I know the hardcore kids must be screaming "sell-out", but i really dont care if they are or not i dont like cds based on that viewpoint. Though, i do feel thrice has lost there agressive edge...songs like paper tigers are my favorite, as i have been listening to heavier stuff latley (in flames, killswitch, god forbid, children of bodom, unearth...). This is a alright cd though, to me not enough screaming, but if tehy wont scream, then songs like stare at the sun make up for it with there emotion. I saw one reviewer that said "this cd has too much screaming that ruins it"... well, in case u havent noticed, the hardcore and metal bands that are the best, scream most of the time, or on occasion. The bled, scars of tomorow, every time i die, unearth, as i lay dying, atreyu...these are all either metal-core or hardcore, and yes, all of them scream, and....guess what??!! they are TALENTED!!! get used to screaming, it adds so much more to this type of music.
Anyways, if you are planning on buying this, dont get it yet. get some earlier releases (and listen to thrice's song Phoenix Ignition), then go to this. you most likely wont be to dissapoineted as thier are some redeming songs on this album tho

5.0 out of 5 stars Musicianship and songwriting at it's best. July 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
OK, I've had this cd for quite awhile, and I could've sworn I had typed a review, but alas, I didn't see it. So, what can I say about Thrice's The Artist in the Ambulance? This is by FAR the best cd of this type I have ever bought. Every single instrument, from the fierce drumming, intricate basslines, and slithering guitars, has woven to form one of the finest albums I've ever heard. The great thing about the cd is that no song sounds like the other. They each have a life of their own, and that makes this cd far from boring. Some songs jump out at you instantly, which were the title track, All That's Left, Stare at the Sun, and The Melting Point of Wax in my case, while others truly shine after repeated listenings, probably the one most will agree with me on is Paper Tigers. This song is the most energetic and heaviest on the cd. I can honestly say that I really don't like a lot of screaming on a cd, but this song, despite Dustin screaming the entire time, is my favorite song. I actually thikn that his screaming added to it. It's an amazing song. Other songs, like the title track and Blood Clots and Black Holes show the guitars taking the forefront and creating amazing counter melodies to each other, and the song. If you are a guitar player, or a fan of well played guitar work, this cd is a first rate example of what a guitar can do when put in the hands of a professional. I would go down and rate the songs individually, but theres really no point. Tehy are all masterpieces, and would be a shining moment on anyone elses cd, but when put together on one, simply creates a 5 star product. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like using an axe to pull a sliver from your skin June 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
Ever since I heard The Illusion of Safety in my friend's dorm room two years ago, Thrice has been one of my favorite, if not my favorite, bands. As a lifelong student of both speed/thrash metal and hardcore/punk, the aggressive blend of hardcore, emo, and metal elements had me completely hooked. So last summer I eagerly awaited the release of Thrice's third album, The Artist in the Ambulance. Needless to say, I was far from disappointed.
Whereas Thrice's first album, Identity Crisis, was an effort of breakneck instrumental ability and endearing, earnest vocals and lyrics, and their second album was a more refined melodic hardcore/metal hybrid chock full of often violent and depressing but always hopeful lyrical imagery, The Artist in the Ambulance is the sum of both albums: a glorified mix of Poison the Well-style hardcore, Thursday-esque screamo and early Metallica thrash, with the best lyrics the lead singer, Dustin Kensrue, has ever produced. TAITA is the apex of the band's musical evolution, and man is it an awesome album for it.
Musically, the band has never been better. From the crushing guitars, brutal drums, and double-pedal fueled bass of tracks like Blood Clots and Black Holes, The Abolition of Man, Paper Tigers, and Under a Killing Moon to the measured, composed melodic hardcore of tracks like All That's Left, Stare at the Sun, The Melting Point of Wax, and the title track, The Artist in the Ambulance, the band have come into their own as musicians.
Lyrically, this album is probably the best of the three albums. Taking on everything from the apathy of the upper class (Cold Cash and Colder Hearts), the loss of humanity to the progress of science and technology (the C.S.
