The Thermals are back with their 5th LP and if you have never heard of them then this is prime time to start rocking! Long time fans may not feel the same, as the band have gotten more polished and areÂ wieldingÂ bigger hooks on Personal Life. This is definitely my favorite batch of Thermals so far! Like a god rock band should, The Thermals work with the classic guitar, bass, and drums set-up, only on tracks like “I Don’t Believe You” they serve up some hearty “OOH OOh oohh!”s and a rhythm that you can’t help but shimmy to. And then there is “Never Listen To Me.”
Holy crap. Are you hearing that guitar work? It’s the best set of sounds I have heard coming from a guitar all year! Not many rock songs could stand alone as an instrumental but this one tells a tale, lyrics or not. Â The fact that the vocals are so perfectly fitted to the slow burning groove are a pure bonus! “Your Love Is So Strong” is another album highlight but that’s not saying much since every track brings something great to the table making Personal Life one of this years most pleasant surprises.
