Well, I always thought "In Vitro" kinda progressed in the same fashion as Thrice's "The Whaler." I could be totally off, just some constructive criticism. Im a huge fan of this band and I stand by saying Signs and Wonders is a brilliant album. Glad yall are back!
quite a few people said that, and they were right. we got pretty absorbed with the writing/recording process and by the time it was being mixed and mastered we decided not to omit it because a) we thought it was a good song and b) we did love us some thrice - we don't deny that it's very similar.
if I could go back I'd probably still leave it on the record since The Alchemy Index had a lasting impact on us. I appreciate the feedback :) and since you like the record you know there are plenty of songs that sound nothing like them!
