I'd be cool with that. Also cool with random other suggestions of bands you guys would think I'd like.

Norma Jean

Goddamnit for Alkaline Trio or From Here to Infirmary

First two Norma Jean albums, Bless the Martyr and O'God, that's it. Don't bother with the rest of them, except that song with Page Hamilton on Anti-Mother ("Opposite of Left and Wrong" and the song with Shelby Cinca on Meridional ("Everlasting Tapeworm")

Norma Jean - Bless The Martyr And Kiss The Child is where it's at, despite it being a total rip off of Botch.



Make Do And Mend - Honestly, all of their stuff sounds pretty similar IMO. End Measured Mile is an awesome album so I'd probably start with that. We're All Just Living and Bodies of Water are both tight as well. You can't really go wrong with any release of theirs.

i'd say it's best to listen to all the alkaline trio and thursday records in chronological order. feel free to stop with alkaline trio after "good mourning" though- there isn't much worth hearing after that.

As far as Thursday goes, Full Collapse and War All The Time are by far their best if you ask me - Although I'm sure lots of people might disagree - I'd say to start with Full Collapse

Stick To Your Guns - If you are more into "metal" you should start with their newer stuff, "Diamond" - If you are more into hardcore you should start with "From What It's Worth" - But I think everything this band has put out is pretty good... Thursday too

listen to symmetry by title fight. watch some videos of them live on youtube. the energy is awesome. they're not hard to get into.

also, separation by balance and composure is fantastic. but their split with tigers jaw is a good place to start too.

Full Collapse isn't my favorite album by Thursday (War All The Time is), but it's an excellent place to start. Start with Full Collapse and work through the rest of the discography. Listen to Waiting last. It is not a good record (when put agaisnt their entire catalogue).
