This EP is basically not THUS. It’s just singer songwriter fare, which I guess means earthy, romantic and lilting...though Amaranthe stems from (stems? Amaranthe? See what I did th- nevermind) relationship stuff. I'm sure some poor shmuck in the dog house somewhere out there up can use the song 'Wrong Thing' to apologize to someone who deserves it. For me, these songs are the left over items I got in a break up. Along with the French press from Target.
That being said, the mopey heartache and love sickness brought out some good songs that I think are worth publishing.
This is the eponymous 1st album, originally recorded in 2007, available here completely re-recorded. Tight and aggressive, it’s never very quiet. That being said, melodic, rhythmic, and lyrical content were the overall focus. ‘Clocks', 'Real Trouble', 'Smile', 'Homeless', 'Go Away' are the songs most people tell me they like. To my face anyway. The one respite from all the riffery is the acapella 'We Are All One'. It’s old, it’s by a young person, I still think it’s pretty good.
BRAND NEW ALBUM- A double album running time but I’ve tried not to waste a moment...this is a more progressive and melodic set. I tried very hard to keep it tight, but let it flow as well. It charts lots of new sonic territory, but retains the classic sound. This is my ode to science and my attempt at showing it’s as poetic and magical as any alternative tomes written in the last few thousand years.
With 'THUS II' I tried to expand on themes and sounds established on the previous album, and at all costs avoid the sophomore slump. You be the judge. 'Killing the Beautiful', 'Between the Lines', and 'The Way We Want' pick up right where the first album left off while new directions are plotted from the group chanting of 'Clones', to the mid-tempo 'Surface Depth', to alt-punk-metal of 'Lease On Life'. 'Crime Scene' broods a little, while the album's closer, 'Dead End' is definitley born of the same stuff as 'Clocks' off the first album. Hope you enjoy it.
