I'm so sorry, 8. No more empty words, 9. Teenager, 10. Should've known better, 11. There's joy to be found...The boy who caught all the breaks

Amazon.co.uk

Though they recorded their third album in an industrial area in Vancouver (as opposed to the sunny California they’ve been obsessed with since they started out), The Thrills--fans will be pleased to know--have not lost their inherently sunny dispositions. Produced by Tony Hoffer (who helmed their debut), this latest outing sees the band engage with that most American of themes – yep, the teenager. The quartet’s trademark vocal harmonies, recognisable instrumentation and light, catchy melodies are rolled out in fine style on opening track "The Midnight Choir," continuing apace on tunes like the jaunty "This Year", the solid "Nothing Changes 'Round Here" and the jangling "Restaurant". Infused with the air of nostalgia that the title suggests, there’s also some welcome edginess. The band keep to their formula of short, 3 1/2 minute songs too--a good idea given the grating potential of Conor Deasy’s croaky vocals, which can sometimes stretch the listener to breaking point. Teenager is occasionally bogged down by a tendency to slip into samey territory, but the slow-burn allure of songs like the title track and "Should Have Know Better" make this something of a return to form for Dublin’s most American band. --Paul Sullivan

A wonderful third album. Despite mentions of a new sound, it's distinctively 'Thrills', especially in the opening tracks. Instrumentation great as always, slight improvement in lyrical maturity and the stomping beats remain. Love 'This Year', 'Mignight Choir' and 'I'm So Sorry'. Nostalgic but still a summery sound, aside from the darker final songs on the album, which are 'slow burners' to say the least. Recommended.

Its been well worth the wait for The Thrills 3rd

record Teenager, its a work of art, I love the

melodies and the lyrics, the mandilon brings that

extra magic to the songs. Its great to have the 3

records, each one different but with the great

difinitive stamp of The Thrills through them:-)
I bought the special edition which has a 70 minute

DVD called The End of Innocence, was great to take

the journey with the band through their early days

till now. Well worth the purchase and if you don't

own the first 2 records you should buy them too

just to see the great diversity and talent of this

great band!

Do you remember the third Summer of Love? 2003 wasn't it? The Thrills were going to take the world by storm, but had to settle for stirring up a light warm breeze.

So what are they like now? The good news is that song after song The Thrills are still delivering strong tunes and arrangements 60's West Coast USA meets 80's and 90's guitar pop style. What lets them down on a fair number of these tracks is the quality of the lyrics. Mind you, although they sound as world weary as ever, they have moved back in time, no longer the 20 somethings struggling to get out of an american one horse town they have reverted to surveying their fumbling teenage years in Dublin as wistfully as ever.

If you liked So Much For The City this is right up your street - there is even the return of some girl - or at least girlish - backing vocals.

Nothing new here, this album sounds just like their previous two albums. However I prefer it to their previous, because although there are no songs that really stand out, it is consistently good all the way through.

...and I made a mistake. First album is one of my favourites of the decade. It just captures this mood all of the way through it and displays excellant musicianship and an authentic sound that's so rarely heard these days. The second album i thought was a good and strong follow up to the debut, although there were a few critical reviews, but all in all i felt it was a solid album. My only criticism of it was that it didn't capture a mood quite like it's predecessor, but then again there was a certain magic about that first record. Then this album, the third album was released it seems without anybody knowing. The fact i caught them live by mistake at the Knowsley Music festival, showcasing new songs was the only reason i knew about Teenager's release. The performance was good considering they was away for such a long time, but I had seen them perform alot better previously and none of the songs really stood out. So this along with bad promotion and marketing, coupled on it's release with some bad critical reviews, must have been a factor in me overlooking this record at the time.
But then, as you do, you go through your record collection and come across the first two releases and fancy putting them on. Then next minute you know your playing it for the fifth time that day. So i came on here as i remembered i didn't have Teenager in the collection and now i'm currently on the eleventh track, which ends the album, wondering why i didn't get it sooner. A previous review on here said that there aren't many stand out tracks on here, but that they are all strong and as good as each other and I agree with that. It's a fair point because one thing this albums got is consistency and like it's predecessor it's once again solid.

Pretty decent album in fairness. Takes a few listens to get true value from the melodies and hooks - much better than their second offering in my opinion. I bought this around about the same time I bought Sundrive's 'Still Here' and although both band's are similar (sun-drenched Californian sound from Dublin) I found Sundrive's offering a little better and would point any potential buyer to take a chance in that direction and discover something new at the same time. Having said that, I do like this album - if you buy it be prepared to give it a chance by listening to it a couple of times before judging it.
