In a way it's only natural to want and expect some sort of sonic evolution in a new Thrice album, but if one looks at their output as a whole, the differences between each of their seven albums aren't the giant experimental steps that so often get mentioned when describing the middle of their discography. Instead it's more of a different approach and refinement of what came before
Opener "Yellow Belly" kicks Major/Minor off as if it means to continue with a thick rock riff in the Tom Morello vein while Dustin Kensrue directs his anger at what is presumed to be a domestic abuser: "You're less than half a man, yellow belly and crimson hands. Kensrue's religious faith is prominent in his lyrics, having been somewhat played down on recent albums, and tracks like "Treading Paper" and "Listen Through Me" find him at his most inspired, lyrically and vocally.

Major/Minor is Thrice’s 8th studio album, released September 6, 2011. It was the first record since Vheissu where Thrice had used an outside producer (Dave Schiffman) and was the last studio album released before their two-and-a-half-year hiatus. While writing the album, Ed and Riley’s dad passed away from cancer, Teppei’s mom passed away from cancer, and Dustin’s dad was fighting cancer. That grief is captured in songs like Blur, and Dustin’s hope in songs like Disarmed. The working title of the album was Blur. Major/Minor was the working title of the song Yellow Belly due to a shift.
