Biography

Hot Hot Heat is a Canadian indie rock band formed in 1999 from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

Dustin Hawthorne and Steve Bays had been in many different bands together since 1995 and met Hawley in 1998. In 1999, Hawley bought a Juno 6 keyboard and asked Bays to try playing it, as no one else knew how. Hawley took over the drums from Bays and Hawthorne played bass. Matthew Marnik, ...

Format: Audio CD
the last album was full of great catchy songs, and was one of my favourite albums of 2005 due its sheer 'manic pop thrill', as one other reviewer described it.

so looked foward to Happiness Ltd and after hearing it, i am not disappointed. the band have chosen some big name producers, and more mature, epic- sounding songs which mostly work.

however the title track and the last track are both a bit plodding and glum, starting and ending the album on a downer. also i think track 3 '5 Times Out Of 100' is average.

the rest of the album though is very impressive, with songs that are just as good if not better than anything on Elevator.

'Let me in', 'Harmonicas and Tambourines' & 'My Best Fiend' are all stunners, being rousing, punchy and up-tempo numbers the band excel at.

the orchestrated 'Outta Heart' is a well-crafted ballad (different to their usual shouty anthems), and the rest of the songs: 'Conversation'' 'Give Up?', 'Good Day To Die', 'So So Cold' are also strong with choruses that will lodge in your brain after the first listen.

so all in all, Happiness Ltd is definately worth a purchase.

Hot Hot Heat Takes The Next Step 18 Sep 2007
By M. Schroeder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Happiness Ltd. is the Canadian indie rock band's fourth full length album and it really shows how they have grown as musicians. The album retains the familiar Hot Hot Heat sound but expands it in new and exciting directions. The music is epic, the lyrics are catchy and meaningful, and the album has an energy that ties all the tracks together.

The album opens with its most epic and pleasantly over-the-top song, the title track, "Happiness Ltd.". It is followed by mostly up-tempo songs interspersed with a few well-placed and well-crafted ballads. "Outta Heart" and "So So Cold" are the best of these. As the album title suggests, most of the tracks explore the theme of happiness: how fleeting it can be, how important other people are to our happiness, and how hard life is without it. It appears to be a very personal album for lead singer Steve Bays. There are moments where his delivery of lyrics is so surprisingly perfect that he captures the emotion of the song in just a few words.

All in all this a fantastic album, fun and energetic, and comes with my highest recommendation. Hot Hot Heat has solidified its position as an important rock band.

Chelsea Clothes and Brooklyn Dreams 25 Sep 2007
By Tim Brough - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Hot Hot Heat must have gotten a cold cold shoulder in the love department; "Happiness is limited, but misery has no end," is how this once effervescent band of post-new wavers glumly kick off their fourth album. Make no mistake, the giddy percolating pop that threw Elevator off the rails has been broadened to include some serious downers. In addition to the title bummer, there's "A Good Day to Die," which couches a true Cure-depressant lyric atop a peppy melody, and the closing "Waiting For Nothing," has lead singer Steve Bays watching his ex-girlfriend walk off into the sunset as he whimpers "I waited for nothing, but I waited for her."

This is Hot Hot Heat going through growing pains. A far darker album than any of their prior efforts, anyone looking for the manic pop thrill of "Running Out Of Time" or "Bandages" might be taken aback. But if you let the album sink in, their are rewards to be found. The title track is pure Morrissey/Robert Smith vibes, and is one of their best. "Harmonicas and Tambourines" is a good song about misplaced aspirations and vicarious living. For those craving that keyboard driven rock that brought the band into the spotlight, there are the great "Let Me In," "5 Times Out of 100" and "Give Up?," all radio worthy zingers. (With "Let Me In" eager to give The Killers a run for the money.)

While they have yet to achieve an album that establishes greatness (ala the aforementioned Las Vegas guys and Sam's Town), there are moments that suggest "Happiness Ltd" was aching to grasp it. If the fifth album maybe stays with one producer (Butch Walker seems to frame the band best on the CD, Rob Cavallo a close second), Hot Hot Heat may yet catch commercial fire. Recommended.

Limited, Indeed 31 Oct 2007
By David Skeele - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I tried with this album--oh, how I tried. I was one of those who declared "Elevator" an absolute masterpiece, and argued with people who tried to claim HHH were losing their edge and headed down a slippery slope to VH-1 land. Well, I STILL think "Elevator" was a brilliant album, but its detractors were right, too, apparently, because there is barely a trace of "edge" left on this mushy, bland collection of forgettable pop tunes. There's really only only one song worth repeated listenings, in my opinion, and that's the rousing, punchy "Five Times Out of a Hundred." After two years of production, filled with breathless announcements from the band that made it sound as though the second coming of "Sergeant Pepper's" was on the way, this dreck feels like a betrayal. Why, then, even give it two stars? Because it still features the magnificent Steve Bays on vocals. Whatever blame he shares for the lackluster songwriting, his tortured yelping is still balm for the soul.

The Evolution of HHH 24 Sep 2007
By Coogs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Happiness Ltd." is the smartest, best-crafted, and most mature disc yet from Hot Hot Heat, not that there was anything wrong with the fun, bouncy nature of their earlier works. The lyrics in particular on this offering suggest a deeply personal approach that absolutely pays off. Perhaps most amazing is HHH's ability to deliver several of their trademark jangly, toe-tapping tunes, despite the turn toward weightier lyrical themes. There are no obvious weak tracks on the disc, and "Let Me In," "My Best Fiend," and "5 Times out of 100" are completely irresistible.
A Varied Mix of Good Music 25 Jan 2014
By AlexC - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Happyness LTD. has a good mix of songs, to upbeat catchy tunes like "Harmonicas and Tambourines", to softer, more emotional songs like the titular "Happyness LTD." and "Waiting for Nothing". I feel a lot of powerful emotion while listening to this album. I highly recommend it to any fans of the Heat.
