Thrice - The Alchemy Index Vols. I & II (2007)

The first 2 volumes in Thrice's Alchemy Index project. Over the past 2 weeks these have become 2 of my favorite albums of all time. The sheer epic proportions plus the amazing concept make this a really intense listen. In these first 2 volumes, you can hear how they adapted their music to each element really well. The songs on Fire are all very intense and hectic while all of the songs on Water are very mellow and feature a lot of effects to make the sound dampened and almost like its being played under water at some points. It's simply genius and everyone should give it a listen. Throw any conceptions of Thrice's poppy/hardcore background out the window and snag this and the next 2 volumes which ill upload later.
