I just have to write this review 'cause I find the previous reviews do not do justice to the band and this album. If the previous albums - including the live at the Echoplex - were always interesting and most of the time very good, this one is an absolute killer. Even with the year not even being halfway, I dare say this one is likely to become the best album of the year. The intensity of the Thermals is seldom heard and the songs on "Now we can see" are better than you can imagine.
I often read the Thermals lack originality, but I can not think of another band sounding like them. The band is said to belong to the 'garage-rock' or 'punkrock' genre, and although this is certainly true, they take an absolute unique place within this genre. The energy that flows out of the speakers doesn't come from the amplifiers or other effect equipment but entirely from the band members' playing and the songs itself. Hutch's singing matches the wonderful powertunes brilliantly and he always sounds like every single word comes straight from the heart. In the ranking of the best albums ever I feel this album belongs up there next to 'Never mind the bollocks' and although the band at a first listen may sound like punk, I wouldn't call them a punkband. A couple of years ago I was in the front row when the band members were setting up their own instruments before a concert (I wouldn't exactly see Johnny Rotten do this) and being asked if they had any T-shirts for sale, Hutch replied 'No, only free Rock and Roll'. What more can I say, that's what it is : rock and roll. But only the best you can find.

The Thermals have now long been consistent purveyors of irrepressible garage-rock. They successfully mine a similar vein to Black Lips, only with an injection of Weezer's summery pop-punk. Nevertheless, they are rockin' garage-rock through and though, not afraid of a riff or two as heard on the title track (infectious smile, listener's own).

Like all Thermals releases, `Now We Can See' lacks immediacy, but knowledge of the catalogue and persistence allows this deceptively simple collection to become effective. There are plenty of trademark, fun time rockers all with a dark edge. `Liquid In, Liquid Out' is a good example, chronicling misspent years. A smattering of quieter, but no less appealing numbers (see `At The Bottom Of The Sea') result in an album less rousing than the debut, or `The Body, The Blood, The Machine', but one no less comfortably able.

Perhaps the Thermals have always lacked originality, but with the distinctive vocal and the charm of their if-it-ain't-broke attitude allow them to carve a deserved niche in a healthy collection.

I bought this album because i had heard the title song on a episode of Chuck and i couldn't find anywhere to download it legally, so i bought the whole album, and what a surprise; i loved every song.

HASH(0x95767fe4) out of 5 stars Fun Listen with Good Variety, but not The Thermals' Best 1 Feb. 2011
By Cole - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
My introduction to The Thermals was their excellent "The Body, The Blood, The Machine" which is filled with hook after hook. I really enjoyed the energy of the first 4 tracks, with the title track "Now We Can See" being the clear standout...gotta love the sugary singalong of the "Oh Way Oh Whoa O". The slow-down of At The Bottom of the Sea is appreciated, but the song drags on a bit too long, defeating its point of pacing the album down to give the listener a chance to fully process and appreciate the rush of the first 4 tracks. ATBotS borders on being a bit numbing. "When We Were Alive" kicks off the 2nd half of the album with a nice little bang, but the slower songs/less loud songs on the 2nd half such as "Liquid In Liquid Out" and "I Call Out Your Name" are lacking in hooks. Overall, NWCS is solid in its own right and fun to listen to, but knowing how fun The Thermals can be as on TBTBTM, this record falls short a bit. TBTBTM is nicely split with a quick burst of hooky power-pop-punk in the first half, the nicely split in the middle by a slowed down song with longer, more epic, yet still catchy tracks comprising the second half.

HASH(0x957695c4) out of 5 stars Likeable Post-Punk 13 April 2009
By Marcus Tullius Wardo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Thermals pound out low-fi post-punk. (As the band says on its website, they describe their music as post-punk "because adding 'post-' to any genre automatically makes your music sound smarter.") Their sound is stripped down and straightforward, akin to Green Day or The Strokes. While the sound is simple, the lyrics are smart and sophisticated and the album is a song cycle about life and death, or maybe evolution, or maybe decline and fall, or maybe the circular nature of existence. Or whatever, I don't think the band meant to create something epic but also didn't want stereotypical songs about sex, drugs and rock and roll. This album is light-hearted and fun and worth a listen.
HASH(0x95769480) out of 5 stars They have a unique sound, some find it repetitive 19 Feb. 2011

But I personally like it.

Now We Can See is a very popular song (or was), the other songs have a similar sound but I like them. Some call it whiney, but I don't think it is what you would call "typical whiney alternative", because they have meaningful lyrics and a good sound.

Absolutely one of the best indie rock albums to come out in the past few years. The songs range from upbeat and cheerful to somewhat despondent, but the entirety is wholesome, a feel-good, year-round, any-time, any-place album. You can't help loving the Thermals.
HASH(0x957694ec) out of 5 stars Even better! 15 Jan. 2010

Even better than their last. One of my favorites cds of the year. Gritty, good melodies, and tunes that stick in your head.
