over the course of seven years and four albums, the thermals have tackled religion, politics, and death with no small amount of passion and fervour. with 'personal life', their fifth album, the thermals have battled (and perhaps even conquered) the deepest and darkest of all popular art themes - love. 'personal life' is also 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 album 'f*ckin'9 a'. 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. 'personal life' is the thermals' fifth album, and their second for kill rock stars.
