Following in the footsteps of artists like David Bowie, Iggy Pop, and Depeche Mode, who have flocked to Berlin in order to mainline ... Read more in Amazon's !!! Store

It's hard to believe but !!! as a band has been going at it for about 15 years now. This is the band's 5th studio album (and the first one since 2010's "Strange Weather, Isn't It?").

"Thr!!!er" (9 tracks; 40 min.) starts with "Even When the Water's Cold", with one of the great opening lines of a album in a long time ("Friends told her she's better off/At the bottom of a river/Than in bed with him", ha!). The next track "Get That Rhythm Right" opens with a rhythm guitar lick that screams LCD Soundsystem (the same for "Except Death", towards the end of the album). At this point the groove is established and this album is a non-stop dancing party. "One Girl/One Boy" recalls the stomping and sly funk sounds from the late 70s/early 80s (think Chic). "Fine Fine Fine" sounds like a 1980s new wave/New Romantic tune, and it works great. "Slyd" is another irresistable stomper, this time a mostly instrumental. Track 8, "Careful", is for me the best track on the album, starting with a phat groove supplemented by a Spanish guitar, and eventually leading to an amazing instrumental outro that reminds me of Kraftwerk, circa "Man Machine", no kidding. The closing track "Station (Meet Me At The)" is an almost rock-sounding tune, and, frankly, a bit out of place with the rest of the album, but no matter. This is one fantastic album! There really isn't a single weak sone on it, and every time I play this, it makes me feel happy.

I saw these guys in conert at the FYF in Los Angeles this past August. Holy cow, what an incredible set they brought, playing mostly songs from this album, turning their set into one massive dance party. It was just unbelievable how much energy they brought, BY FAR the best set of the festival. If you have a chance to see !!! on their current tour, DO NOT MISS THEM, seriously.

This album is almost certainly going to end up at the very top of my list of "best albums of the year". "Thr!!!er" is HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

My fave track is 'Careful' but the entire album is a dancey-genre-defying treat. Can't wait for their next effort. I think this is my soundtrack for summer '13/'14

Thr!!!ling! 3 May 2013
By Lisa Besio - Published on Amazon.com
This is my favorite live band. I see them everytime they come to the west coast. Their songs are infectious, so when they come out with new music it is oh so exciting! This album did not disappoint. It has brings the dancy, disco, psychedelic groove that certainly defines !!!. It is reminiscent of all of their prior albums, but infuses all of their incarnations into this one disc. The new vocals are great, curios to see who they'll trot out on tour. Well done boys!

Yes, this was a real letdown. I kind of wonder if its Jim Eno's fault as producer. I say this because if you listen to the early live versions of these songs they have a lot more energy. Like Youtube search for live at the "Echoplex One Boy" and it sounds so much better than the studio version. I don't know why they changed guitar to a bring out a distracting cheezy tone.(it was better off lower and understated) While the intent of having a female singer duet for the song was a cool idea, the style singer they chose just doesn't work well. (singer suggested by Eno) While Nic's not bad in studio version here, his style was certainly better in the original version.

Look up Pitchforks early youtube "chk chk chk "Byron"" video featuring what would be renamed "Even When the Water's Cold". So much more energy in the song. Studio version for some reason has some random girl vocals in the studio thrown in that just doesn't work. Why are we female chorusing what the male character is supposed to be saying in the girl's head? In the Pitchfork interview you can hear them saying they were getting to their roots and the album sounded real promising. Even later performances of this song I've seen are just so lacking in energy vs the early live version.

In the same video you only hear a snippet of Californiyeah in the beginning of the Pitchfork video but it sounds a lot more exciting compared to what they actually ended up doing with the song. It is kind of barebones and boring now. You just start to fall asleep through it. Bring out the excitement of California!!! Some Myth Takes style swells could have really got this track going. Ain't that right?

A snippet of some other great sounding song plays in the Pitchfork interview vid for 30 seconds that never happened.(maybe its just a cover?)

I remember reading an interview where they were saying they were making their new songs for to play strong live shows. And Chk Chk Chk live performances are definitely one of their great strengths. Whether it was through Eno's direction or their own, they strayed away from the livelier versions in the album that ultimately became Thr!!!er.

Tracks 2, 5, 7, and 8 kind have a certain underwhelmingness to them. Maybe one or 2 of these tracks would have been alright for the album but it probably has something to do with the tracks starting to wear down.

I will grant you Fine Fine Fine is a cool different track with the band.(Which Eno's definitely gets some credit, he drums in it too)

They wrap it up with a solid rockin Meet me at the Station.

I can't help but be disappointed with 2,5, 6, 7, and 8 weighing down the album combined with weak renditions of One Boy and "When the water's cold" to drag it further down. Maybe if they had more tracks on the album I would have found more to enjoy. Come on !!! you can do more than 9 songs for an album!!! Blue was a Great track that should have made it to Strange Weather originally.

I'm left with only particularly enjoying Fine Fine Fine and Meet me at the Station.

I'm all for bands trying new things. I think its BS to say !!! haven't done that already. Their last 4 albums all sounded quite different from each other. While Strange Weather wasn't their strongest album you can't blame the band for mixing it up with the loss of Jerry Fuchs as Drummer, member Justin Vander Volgen, and of course John Pugh who especially started to push himself as a force in the band on Myth Takes.(And I'm not one of those people saying the band lost it with John leaving. !!! have had many great songs that weren't all just on John)

That being said it was interesting to read an interview with Nick talking about John in the recording process. I think it was in regards to Strange Weather's release, Nic was saying he wondered what John would think about the album. He said that John was usually more critical than the rest of the band when it came to ideas in the songs. He said in a pitchfork interview John "had a prejudice against anything too candy-ass. He didn't want to do the Magnetic Fields song ["Take Ecstasy With Me"]. We had to make it good enough that he liked it. It was a good bar to set."

And the results were great. John recently had 2 songs in 2013 under Free Blood that sounded rather !!!.(Free Blood is most likely dead now)

So I propose John Pugh be the producer of the next album ;) Push the band bring back a little more oomph and fullness of sound. Its too bad the band and him don't get along anymore. Sounds like they might get Eno for their new album too.(band was happy with him) Hopefully new album turns out better than Thr!!!er. Keep trying new stuff guys, and more tracks per album ;) We know you got some lying around ....

This is one fantastic album! There really isn't a single weak sone on it, and every time I play this, it makes me feel happy. I've seen !!! only once in concert, back in 2008 at the Langerado Festival in South Florida, when they were touring in support of "Myth Takes". I can only hope they will take to the road in a massive way for "Thr!!!er". This album is the best album of this year, period. "Thr!!!er" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

*UPDATE August '13* I just saw these guys live at the FYF last weekend in Los Angeles. Holy cow, what an incredible set they brought, playing mostly songs from this album, turning their set into one massive dance party. It was just unbelievable how much energy they brought, BY FAR the best set of the festival. If you have a chance to see !!! on their current tour, DO NOT MISS THEM, seriously.

*UPDATE December '13* Saw these guys again live this week in Cincinnati. Same vibe as a few months ago in LA. Massive dance party, fun guaranteed for all!
