I really don't like to nitpick, but the brickwalling on the drums in the chorus is kinda obnoxious. That aside, very solid track. Was an interesting idea for them to have a professional writer do the lyrics, gives this experiment a very unique feel.
Damn it! That's exactly what I was coming on to say! lol Good call man. I haven't listened to Thrice in forever. Last time the were fast hardcore punk hehe. Oh how things change. Still like his voice though.
yes it could remember FFVII! by the way, many songs by thrice are so evocative that remind me some full of steam, lights and iron atmospheres belonging to sci-fi cinema, so ffVII is a perfect example... For instance, 'for miles' reminds me in some points visions from the city of blade runnerb .ut maybe it's only for me :)
