Third Day - The End Of An Era

Post by alldatndensum on Sat Mar 03, 2018 9:55 am

Most of us have a love or hate relationship with this band.  You may love them, or love some albums of theirs, or despise their entire catalog.  They have announce that, after 25 years, they are calling it a day.  They will embark on a 12 city tour this summer as their farewell tour.

While some albums are better than others, I've long enjoyed this band.  It is a sad day, indeed.

Enjoyed the first album a lot, it was different for Christian music, and liked Time and Move but there's quite a few albums that were kind of boring imo as they tried to fit a different sound.

I liked much of their catalog, will be sad to see them go.  I hope Mac does some solo work in the southern rock vein and not another country album.

Except for their "Miracle" album which has at least grown on me, I love just about everything.  I have favorite and least favorite albums.  Just count me as a fanboy.

Favorite albums:

Time
Revelation
Wherever You Are
Move
S/t debut
Revival

They were the first band who I really became a fan of when I was discovering music as a teen, so they hold a pretty special place for me. I think their best moments were when they fully embraced being a rock band with worshipful lyrics as opposed to a couple of their latter albums that were a little more consciously CCM, but they never released anything that I truly disliked. My favorite albums are the criminally underrated Conspiracy No. 5, Come Together, Offerings I, Wire, Move, and Revival. 

I've also seen them live twice and hope I can catch them one more time on one of the farewell dates. It's more than understandable that the guys are in much different places in life than when they started, but I'll still be sad to see them go.

We were listening to a couple of their albums yesterday.  Even when morphing their sound, they still sounded like Third Day.  You can hear the tiredness in their most recent album "Revival", though.  It's fun, but it just doesn't have the same hunger musically that their most loved albums had.

I can see why they would call it a day.  The music industry isn't really looking for bands anymore.  They want keyboard driven pop that can have a live band or tracks.  It would be easier to retire than to try to become what you aren't to attempt to stay relevant.

In the world of christian music, creativity isn't rewarded, it's very sad.

It isn't just Christian music.  We have had lots of artists over the decades that were creative even if they were signed due to sounding like a secular counterpart.  Creativity has been pushed aside in favor of cheap art that can be pushed by a label until interest dies and the next flavor of the month comes along.  I listen to no current pop (secular or Christian) as I cannot distinguish one band from another anymore.

Due to the overwhelming response of the farewell tour, Third Day is having to add some extra dates to this final string of shows.  We wanted to go to the Nashville show, but it completely sold out in FIFTEEN minutes.  They added a second show and my wife and I were able to get decent (not great) seats.  It will be cool to see these guys one last time.  I have seen them four times previously.

The second night of the Third Day farewell tour sold out so quickly that they are now adding....well, a third day!  LOL

All three shows will be at the historic Ryman Auditorium.

I saw them at Cornerstone in '93 when the s/t was just coming out...was a pretty big buzz about them all over the festival that year.

I have mixed feelings about this band. Though I was really into the band in my teenagerhood, they were part of the reason I started to look for heavier stuff. I couldn't stand their lighter side. I needed true rock and them after getting the Come Together album, I simply quit listening to them.

Many and many years later I was mature enough to revisit some of their albums. I have good memories about the s/t album and Wherever you Are and that's it.

Then you missed the magic of "Time","Revelation", and "Move".  While some would disagree, these three are a return to the southern rock roots.  Add the two albums you mentioned you still have good memories about, and those are my favorites of their career.
