The Alchemy Index Vol. 1&2: Fire & Water
www.thrice.net

The Alchemy features two volumes, with six tracks on each. Fire, the first volume, is like a fistfight. The blood curdling screams, pain, yearning and anger are heard and felt on each of the first six tracks. The tide immediately changes with “Digital Sea”, emanating a more melancholy sound. The second volume, Water, gives off a vibe reminiscent of a “Sounds of Nature” CD accompanied by lyrics and guitar. In one album Thrice pulls through with a mix of songs that makes the listener feel as though they’re swimming, being buried alive, sitting fireside or even walking in the rain. Maybe I’ve taken the whole water and fire thing too literally but I’m telling you – I can see it. The Alchemy is truly brilliant.
