    We all know the danger of groups with math rock tendencies; dullness is only a repeated motif away. However, Major/Minor avoids that pitfall with some ease. What Thrice have delivered, somewhat unexpectedly, is an accomplished if rather unfashionable alternative rock album in the mould of Interpol and their ilk. Though far from a classic or even one of 2011's best, it is a worthwhile listen.

    With Major/Minor Thrice have stripped away unnecessary studio production, added instrumentation and pretention to offer simply a great rock album.

    Major/Minor is an unusually conventional and yet glorious statement from a band characterised by fearless experimentation and exquisite music. [24 Sep 2011, p.53]

    It ain't a perfect, cohesive statement, but Major/Minor packs too much power to be ignored.
