    On HOT's opening track, "Drum Straight," Half Japanese burst out with a sound twice the size of the average five-piece combo. But HOT is not all about volume. The second song, the joyful "True Believers," pays homage, in both texture and song structure, to the Velvet Underground's "We're Gonna Have A Real Good Time Tonight."
    This set also includes another one of Jad Fair's stellar ballads, "Lucky Ones." Its chiming guitars seem worlds away from the beautiful racket of the early days (when notes were never so specifically employed). There is a clear sense of continuity between HOT and the early work however, attributable to the fact that Jad's personality and world view are so much a part of this band's identity. Fair is never short of believable in anything he sings, and his musical cohorts always fall in step with his distinctive aesthetic.
