The Album Drop


Song Of The Day #17

Thursday is a 6 piece group from New Brunswick, New Jersey. Since the late 90’s this six piece has been putting out a solid mix of hardcore punk and alternative rock. Singer Geoff Rickly has a great balance of screaming and singing that makes their music just awesome. Their new record is out, it’s called No Devolución, and this one is on it. Dig it…

    I hated Common Existence because the heavy-sounding guitars made it so cheesy and “big” (haha, I am not a musician and wish I could articulate that better) but this song is an improvement to me. I’ll buy this album even if it sucks because I’m loyal/nostalgic like that but whatever… I still prefer the raw (dare I say “poor”) vocals found prior to City By the Light. They’re just a different band now. I’m getting used to Geoff’s new overproduced voice and simpler lyrics, but sometimes I feel like I have to force myself to suspend my disgust when I put on a newer Thursday record because I don’t want to let go of something I once loved, and that’s an uncomfortable feeling. I can’t believe I’m saying this but it would almost be better if they broke up and formed a new band rather than continue on this way.
