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.

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.

Thrice puts out by far their best album. The guitar, drums, bass and vocals all come together to make one of the best albums of 2003. Thrice actually makes they're screaming sound good in the songs, and also does some singing which fits in perfectly to this album. There is not one bad track on this CD.
1. Cold Cash and Colder Hearts - 10/10. Awesome song, really meaningful lyrics. perfect opener. Top Knotch song.
2. Under a Killing Moon - 9/10. great guitar and beat.
3. All That's Left - 8.5/10. catchy song, but not their best.
4. Silhoutte - 9/10. great opening. repetitive in a good way.
5. Stare at the Sun - 10/10. Great Lyrics, perfect begginning middle and end. simply spectacular track.
6. Paper Tigers - 7/10. a little overdone on trying to be hardcore, but a good track.
7. Hoods on Peregrine - 9.5/10. Great drums and guitar to form sweet beginning to this song. crazy lyrics. incredible song.
8. The Melting Point of Wax - 9.5/10. inspiring lyrics and song.
9. Blood Clots and Black Holes - 9/10. awesome guitar and drums, sweet beat. good lyrics too.
10. The Artist in the Ambulance - 10/10. deep song, extremely powerful and just plain AWESOME. The best track on the Cd.
11. The Abolition of Man - 9/10. I LOVE the opening, good song.
12. Don't Tell and We Won't Ask - 10/10. AWESOME lyrics, sweet song from first line to last.

First things first, these guys are not punk. Its an insult to call them that, these guys are deffinetly not among the no talent pop stars that you hear on the radio all the time anymore. What are they? Hell if I know, but I like it! These are some of the best guitar players I have heard in a long time. Brings back great memories of Metallica. They have deffinetly mastered the driving down strokes of a muted open E string that Metallica made so popular.
This album is in a word dumbfounding. I bought the album because I really liked the song "All That's Left," and ended up liking alot of the other songs much more. The opening song "Cold Cash and Colder Hearts," is a great example of what you will hear on the rest of the cd. His screaming and emotionally charged melodies, slowly mesh into a calmer melodic transition, which is a true sign of a great band in my mind. The best part of this song is that they can go back and forth with smooth unawkward transitions to the hard, and then the soft sides of their music. They end it all in an insanely charged, screaming, loud staccato style ending, which just makes me want to grab my guitar, find a crowd, and go insane!
As far as THIS cd goes, they are deffinetly not punk, and their talent rivals one of my favorite, hometown bands, Slipknot. In short buy the cd!
If you're looking for something non-mainstream, and I deffinetly recommend it, here are some other bands that will blow your mind much like Thrice will; From Zero, Pressure 4 5, Mad at Gravity, Depswa, and Ill Niño.
