Thrice/Thursday : Under A Killing Moon / For The Work Force Drowning
...limited to 1,000 copies and bursting with tenderness and compassion...
California’s Thrice make a joyous racket, harnessing the melodious skill of The Replacements with the metallic frigidity of [a]Slayer[/a]. Meanwhile, New Jersey’s Thursday go one better by laying down a slice of teardrop-stained rock action that reeks of stolen youth and aching hearts. NME hereby declares this magnificent split to be the most honest, impassioned and forward-thinking rock music we’ve heard in a long time. Awesome, inspiring stuff.
