    Hot Hot Heat suffered something of a sophomore slump with ELEVATOR, the follow-up to their excellent debut MAKE UP THE BREAKDOWN. 2007's HAPPINESS LTD., the group's third effort, has something of a return to the energy of their first release, while still experimenting with new directions.
    Tunes like "Let Me In" and "5 Times Out of 100" bounce with fun, nervy grooves, offsetting the unexpected somberness of the title track opener. Who'd expect Hot Hot Heat to kick an album off with a ballad? The variety makes for an interesting, if not always even, listen, and the band sounds better than ever (thanks in part to production help from some industry heavyweights). Fans of the band's first two albums will find strong elements from both on HAPPINESS LTD.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (p.104) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Brooding intensity powers the title track...while arena-ready riffing lights up 'Outta Heart'..."
    Entertainment Weekly (p.149) - "The booming choruses, expansive melodies, and serrated guitar lines of the band's past remain..." -- Grade: B
    Uncut (p.107) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[When they] go for real emotion on the aching 'Outta Heart', they end up with easily their best song."
    Alternative Press (p.169) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[F]rontman Steve Bays proves he still has a unique way of wringing the syllables of a phrase for all they're worth....It's still a blast to listen to Hot Hot Heat when they sound like they're having fun..."
