    Dark, cinematic, beautiful, atmospheric: just a few words to describe this fine work of art. Thursday have been quite an influential part of the post-hardcore scene for some time but they decided the change gears for No Devolucion, an album that feels bigger with each new listen. The songs seem to drench and engross the listener with gorgeous soundscapes.

The songs seem to drench and engross the listener with gorgeous soundscapes. Definitely different than their prior work, but also their best if you ask me. Check this out. Best song, imo: Sparks Against the Sun. Expand

    Thursday is a very unique band. They're never comfortable with staying traditional and No Devolucion is no exception. The singer, Geoff Rickly, usually has a very human voice that transcends talent and replaces it's importance with raw, sincere emotion. He still keeps you on the edge of your seat on No Devolucion but his role has been reduced to a more mathematical approach. TuckerThursday is a very unique band.

He still keeps you on the edge of your seat on No Devolucion but his role has been reduced to a more mathematical approach. Tucker Rules drums are at their best on this album, very technical and big, just amazing. Tom Keeley and Steve Pedulla are absolutely mystifying with their Pink Floyd approach to modern day music. Tim Payne and Andrew Everding's roles in the band have been bumped up a couple notches, with thick brooding bass and thought provoking keyboards.

    On No Devolucion, Thursday has a beast of a sound that raises those hair on your forearms, no matter what the mood of the song is. Most bands these days are background music, Thursday is not a band that can be ignored. They grab you and never let go. 10 out of 10.

    Thursday has been producing albums of substance for over a decade and No Devolucion is no departure from this trend. For those of you familiar with the Thursday discography I would say this album lands somewhere on the spectrum between A City By The Light Divided and Common Existence. It's atmospheric and melodic but still characteristically raw and loud.

    This is, without question, the strongest Thursday album to date. The band has undergone some metamorphosis in the last seven years and it's for the best. Hopefully, there will be more records and this won't end up a swan song.

    No DevoluciĆ³n is an album that could easily make converts out of the skeptical, allowing the band to reintroduce themselves to the world over a decade after their first album was released.

    After a decade-plus of no small creative achievement, Thursday have outdone themselves. [9 Apr 2011, p.51]

    What marks "No Devolucion" as an improvement over 2006's "A City by the Light Divided" and 2009's "Common Existence" is that frontman Geoff Rickly and his bandmates have finally written a batch of songs worthy of those complicated arrangements.
