Thursday - Full Collapse (Cover Artwork)


Full Collapse (2001)


I bought this CD after downloading the track "cross out the eyes" for the Victory site. It was a decent enough song. Intense but a sense of melody and melancholy prevailed. This song shows nothing of what the album in full is. The lyrics are contemplative and lofty yet hard hitting and intense. Bands like Cursive, Grade and even Bauhaus remind me of Thursday. Yes, that Bauhaus. The singer has a very goth texture to his voice and the guitar, when it isn't ripping away, takes avery 80's goth feel as well. In any case this CD is amazing and the triple, sometimes quadtruple vocal layerings is quite impressive. If this is a precursor to what Victory is going to keep putting out, I say, "Amen!"
