The Thermals have never shied from topics like war, politics and religion..."Pitchfork (Website) - "[T]he Thermals' Hutch Harris has always been able to ponder life's big questions without being ponderous....He takes advantage of a newfound musical maturing, buffing his fuzzy riffs into polished power-pop..."8.556095

Alternative Press (9/99, p.118) - 3 out of 5 - "...these fellas are tighter than Bon Scott's big ball-hugging bellbottoms....while fidelity may not be TBFWBW's top priority, the band's message still cuts through loud and clear: rock hard or get out."Magnet (8-9/99, p.90) - "...the reckless vibe...permeates [RUNNIN'] like a bongwater stain on your shag carpet....Sure to inspire another generation of gle-sniffing losers to grab their unused tennis rackets and make for the mirror in an effort to kick out the jams..."CMJ (6/14/99, p.27) - "...This thundering quintet bashes the atmosphere with a broiling, double-guitar onslaught that seldomly takes a breather....If hopped-up, eardrum-shredding rock 'n' blues is your thing, the Bro's won't disappoint."8.523103

The Wire (p.55) - "[W]ith these 12 tracks blasted out in barely 30 minutes, and their restless shifting grooves and political preoccupations, the group most strongly evoked is Minutemen."CMJ (p.5) - "Erase Errata is most convincing when they really go tribal, as they do on 'Wasteland (In A)..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.118) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "A fevered hurricane of no-wave dissonance, post-punk groove and feral improvisation."8.523103

Stern's physical voice takes up more space: the echo effects on 'Shea Stadium' conjure its namesake; 'Ruler''s sighing choruses are buoyed by Stern's worn-in leads."8.523103

Spin (pp.83-85) - "Her lazily smoky voice has its bitterly harsh moments, but her coolly analytical self-awareness stings the most."Paste (magazine) - "Abetted by Tucker Martine's warm, piquant production, the songs swerve from the buoyant, jangly pop of 'Cool Yourself' to the trembling lament of 'But What of the Strangers'..."Pitchfork (Website) - "KNOW BETTER LEARN FASTER sports a fuller sound with more pop tricks and trickier arrangements that incorporate swirling Philip Glass-y keyboards on 'Burn You Up'..."8.523103
