Full Collapse is the second album by American post-hardcore band Thursday. Released on April 10, 2001, it marks their first and only studio album on Victory Records and features two of the band's most popular singles, "Understanding in a Car Crash" and "Cross Out the Eyes. Full Collapse helped to establish Thursday as an immensely popular group in the indie and alternative rock music scenes, reached on The Billboard 200, and provided some of the earliest mainstream exposure to post-hardcore.

Thursday displays a peerless version of the emo sound for a music scene that may not be ready for what the band has to offer. Full Collapse starts out with a warm, daydreamt piece, "Understanding in a Car Crash," that might give listeners a feeling that they are listening to a more modern, upbeat version of the Cure. The key to this possibility lies behind the music that Thursday creates. Lead singer Geoff Rickly's vocals are smooth yet not immature, strong.

Full Collapse is Thursday's second album and their debut on Victory Records. It combines post-hardcore influences with melodic elements and personal, emotional lyrics. The album helped to establish Thursday as an immensely popular group in the indie and alternative rock music scenes. Live cuts of "Understanding in a Car Crash", "Autobiography of a Nation", "Paris in Flames", and "Standing on the Edge of Summer" appear on the band's 2002 Victory Records live EP Five Stories Falling.

Thursday does a few things right, but all in all, this could have been a much better album. These guys bring 'taking themselves too seriously' to a level few bands have ever even considered. I'm all for the serious approach to music, but enough is enough. The only remarkable thing about this album is the screaming. Full Collapse has a whole lot of screaming. Sometimes it's fun, like on "Concealer" or "Understanding in a Car Crash," where it's mostly complementary to the vocals and doesn't end up overshadowing the music too much

Thursday is one of the more popular and successful bands among the modern re bands, especially in the US. 'Full Collapse' was the second full length release of the band after their "underground" LP 'Waiting', and the album that brought the band to the attention of the "average Joe". Some general impressions: One of the first things you notice about the bands music is the voice of singer Geoff Rickley. The singing voice is something many people have to get used to.
