I Don't Believe You - directed by Whitey McConnaughy, starring Carrie Brownstein


Over the course of seven years and four LP's, The Thermals have tackled a variety of subjects with no small amount of passion and fervor. Religion, politics, death, these are some heavy themes! 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

Over the course of seven years and four LP's, The Thermals have tackled religion, politics, and death with no small amount of passion and fervor. With their fifth LP, The Thermals have battled (and perhaps even conquered!) the deepest and darkest of all popular art themes- love. Not that The Thermals
haven't sung/spoken/screamed about the wide range of emotions love produces and abuses. But never before have The Thermals devoted an entire LP to love, loss, and lies! More than an album strictly about love, Personal Life is about relationships. It's about the concept of a connection between two people -making it, breaking it, and faking it. Personal Life amounts to the indie-rock equivalent of a brilliant but ultimately doomed love affair. A beautiful, turbulent experience that will hopefully leave you wiser in the ways of love and life.
Personal Life is something of retro-technical achievement. Producer Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie, Tegan and Sara) recorded The Thermals the same way in which he produced their 2004 LP. The band was recorded live (for the most part) to tape, and the album was mixed to tape as well. The sonic care Walla gave to Personal Life assures an enjoyable listen for audiophiles (the vinyl was mastered straight from tape) as well as for the rest of us who don't care and will be listening on awful headphones and Radio Shack speakers.

4.0 out of 5 stars 8/10 September 14, 2010
By Uthor
Format:Audio CD
I was worried about this album after being disappointed by the last one, but I'm really happy to see that it's a solid work from one of my favorite groups. While it still is lacking the raw energy present in the first two or three albums, the songs return to simple, catchy lyrics and the music complements them perfectly. The songs remind me most of the Hutch and Kathy duo album that came out a few years ago, but with a full band instead of an accoustic sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars Personal Life = great! December 2, 2010
By Garn
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A bit more solid than Now We Can See, but not reaching the heights of The Body, The Blood, The Machine...that said, this is a great record. I can't take it out of my daily rotation!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Thermals will warm your Heart November 12, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Well, actually maybe they won't warm your heart, but they just may rock your socks off. I picked up this bad boy CD at one of their shows, and would highly recommend. It is a bit different from their previous albums though as it isn't as high energy (with the exception of "I Don't Believe You). I read somewhere else that this album is a "grower", and I would agree with that as I started to like the songs more the more I listened to them. Left this in the car cd player for a few weeks. If you like alternative music, give The Thermals a shot. It's one of the two CDs I've bought all year, and I can't wait to see what they do next.

5.0 out of 5 stars INSANELY AMAZING... July 14, 2014
By gbv4me
Format:Audio CD
Wow. To put my thoughts simply into words, I LOVE THIS ALBUM! I've always been a fan of The Thermals, but THIS is the catchiest, most sing-a-long record I've ever heard. It was instantly a classic for me when it was released, and I'm still addicted to it 4 years later. I love how every single song flows right into the next. Each song sounds similar yet focuses on different aspects of relationships, creating an album that makes you feel like you're really listening to someone's "personal life" being sung to you chapter by chapter. Too good for words, so download it and listen to it already! You'll be glad you did.

The Thermals are one of my all-time favorite bands; I loved their four former albums, especially "The body...". This time The Thermals surprised me: their fifth issue is their best album. The two contrasting songs on both ends, "I'm gonna change your life" and "You changed my life" are perfect, someimes I feel almost like crying with them, but what else could be said about "I don't believe you" or "Never listen to me"?.
