"Waiting" (Eyeball Records; 2000)

Reviewed by Jeff Rogers

Iím starting with another debut release from a band Iíve never heard of. They'd be listed under Emo and Screamo. Thursday have the painful singer leading them and whining all over each track. Two of the songs deal with suicide, a very emotional subject, then add some anger for uncontrolled actions and the screamo trait emerges.

I guess Iíll never get into this type of music. Call me narrow minded, call me what you want, but music is supposed to be uplifting and give you energy. You canít work out to emo; itís just lost on me.

The guitar never really stays in one place and when it does get going the lead singer pulls the reigns and starts his wa wa. The drums do sound good, but I couldnít tell you anything more than that.

As I said before, I started with Thursday. T.G.I.F. The sooner the better. 

Thursday: Tom - guitar; Tucker Ė drums; Bill Ė guitar; Geoff Ė vocals; Tim- bass.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
