Yet The Thermals have irreverently run roughshod over these topics with excesses of moxie and gusto, the likes of which the post/punk/pop/power/etc. community had never before seen! Now, for ...

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The second release by this Portland, OR trio retains the band's raw energy and charisma, while upping the fidelity ante significantly. "Every bit as playground naive as The Ramones, as emotionally all-consumed as The Smiths--The Thermals are like falling in love, for the first time, all over again"--NME.

Amazon.com

Since so much three-chord punk has gotten stale, this Portland, Oregon trio often strips down to just two chords--which makes those moments when they do splurge on that third precious bundle of notes staggeringly climactic. The Thermals have just one basic melody, but it's a great one, and like the finest bluesmen, their brilliance is in the variations they work over these standard changes. Except these variations aren't solos--they're gradations of emotional tone and feedback burst and Hutch Harris' clearly enunciated rants. There's a political underpinning to this all--the lyrics on the elliptical yet scathing "God and Country" ("Pray for a new state/ Pray for assassination") draws the line pretty clearly. But even here, Harris chooses not to rail against the powers that be, but instead to express solidarity with a likeminded constituency, declaring "History will show our progress is slow/ When we win/ We win in inches." --Keith Harris

I love these guys - every once in a while a band shows up that hits me the right way, and the Thermals do it for me. After getting "The Body, The Blood, The Machine", I knew I had to get their first two albums to see how they developed. "F'ing A" has the anger of their latest, but the songs are on a wider set of topics. A bit more urgent, a bit less detailed, more catchy, less interesting. It doesn't preach like the latest, but it doesn't pull any punches either. "Pray for, a new state - pray for assasination". Any questions on where they are coming from?

I love these guys...

The Thermals rip ugly. If you like any of the bands listed up there for "similar artists", I personally guarantee that this CD will be the best six bucks you ever spend. It is a fantastic breed of almost melodious "punk", these guys are no Yellowcard folks.

I thought this band was Canadian, they aren't. They are in fact out of Portland and i'm a bit confused as to how I came to think they were Canadian. Regardless the band is The Thermals, and the sound is somewhere on the cusp between punk and very hard rock music. I heard the big song off this album "How You Know" around six months ago and have wanted to hear the album ever since. It took me this long to find all of it.

So what can you expect out of this? You can expect 12 short, concise songs that never take their collective foot off of the pedal. The album runs for 26 minutes, which would be disappointing if the 26 minutes weren't so much bloody fun. Vocally the best comparison I can come up with for Hutch Harris is that his voice actually brings to mind a strong comparison to either Ted Leo, or Jim Adkins from Jimmy Eat World. Except for imagine either of those guys using their voice but doing so in a pure punk style. Hutch Harris has a good voice, although my one complaint is that he doesn't show a ton of range due to the style of track 1-12 being relatively similar. Come to think of it this is why normally I stray away from punk/hard rock. I like variety in my music, and it is such a restrictive sound. With this album though it is only a minor complaint. The band isn't spectacular, but they are aggressive and sometimes that is all you need to be. Think Ted Leo & The Pharmacists meet Billy Talent (when they are going full throttle) and you might be able to imagine the sound.

"You spilled water like love and now we'll tak it if you can't sake it", opens the infectious and loveable single "How We Know".

This is my favorite Thermals CD. The first time through it may sound like they are just another loud punkish trio, but the lyrics are at a cerebral level not often found in music. The ideas give this CD much more replay ability...good for those of you like me who can have fickle and fleeting music commitments.

Hutch's songs have a self awareness that is clever and brilliant.Your body will be happy rocking out and your mind sated with the conundrum of future moments and repetition in a song about keeping time.

One of the greatest band around right now. All of there songs are fast and energetic. If your looking for a new artist to listen too, the thermals is it. Listen to "How we know" I like that one the best.

i would have to say i enjoy the theremals' previous release "more parts per million" more than this. although this is still good its not quite up to par. this is a little more raw and in general i didnt find the vocals as captivating. its a good disc and is still lots of fun, but you should probably check out MMPM over this one. even better, go see them live!
overall, i'd have to say the thermals rule and this is probably worth owning.
