Thursday / Envy Split

Envy - An Umbrella Fallen Into Fiction

Envy - Isolation Of A Light Source

Envy - Pure Birth And Loneliness

Thursday sucks. I never liked 'em. Envy, on the other hand....Envy is tits. I wasn't going to by this record. You know, vinyl only, 1000 copies, hand numbered, all that jazz, I figured I'll let the real Thursday and Envy nerds go for this one. But a friend of mine accidentally bought two and, well, now I have myself a copy.

Now out of the 4 Thursday songs on here, one is pretty decent but it's only good because they're trying to sound like Envy. But whatever, Envy's got 3 songs on this split and because of that I'll still call it an awesome record. This new Envy stuff is fucking hard and epic. I can't get enough of it. I don't know how you feel, but I'm of the opinion that a lot of Envy songs sound quite a bit like other Envy songs. And usually that's a bad thing but not in this case. Envy's got such a cool thing going that it doesn't really matter to me.

I feel bad for all of you Envy fans out there who, like me, don't give a shit about Thursday and would never buy this record. So I'll put up all 3 of the Envy songs here for your listening pleasure for a little while.

yeah, thursday and envy are an odd pairing, but i like both bands, so no complaints from me.

i imagine that this split will allow thursday fans to discover envy, which is a good thing.

...or help older Thursday fans like Thursday again. I didn't really like anything they've done since Full Collapse, but this split is a huge improvement.
