    With WAR ALL THE TIME, former underground New Jersey sensation Thursday storms into the mainstream. Diehard fans will be pleased to discover that the leap to a major label hasn't softened the band's approach. If anything, it sounds like the members of Thursday worked extra hard to ensure that the band's vision would remain wholly intact. Kicking off with the thunderous, daring "For the Workforce, Drowning," singer/lyricist Geoff Rickly firmly establishes himself as one of rock-and-roll's most distinct voices. "Division St." and "Signals over the Air" capture the skillful synergy between guitarists Steve Pedulla and Tom Keeley. But it is "Marches and Maneuvers" that best encapsulates Thursday as a band. Hyperemotional and sensitive, yet abrasive and forceful, the song uses war metaphors to dissect a deteriorating relationship. Rickly maintains this war theme throughout, whether addressing religion or suicide or depression, resulting in an album that is passionate, challenging, and deeply affecting.

    Entertainment Weekly (10/17/03, p.82) - "...Sensitive as a teardrop, but hitting with the impact of a two-by-four across the jaw..." - Rating: A-
    Q (10/03, p.118) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...There's a redemptive beauty to vocalist Geoff Rickly's meditations..."
    CMJ (9/22/03, p.4) - "...Thursday uses vivid detail and gruff emotion to paint pictures that aren't beautiful, but they're magnetic celebrations of human imperfections....Harmonically distorted, hardcore-meets-new-wave riffs [generate] explosive middles and urgent endings..."
