VINYL FORMAT. Now We Can See! The problem is, I think they meant the title to be ironic. After all, The Thermals certainly love the 90's (think Pinkerton, Last Splash, Dookie, Mr. Show), the decade when irony battled sarcasm until they both collapsed upon themselves. When The Thermals sing "Now we can see/What do we need?/We should need nothing/Nothing at all", "should" seems to be the key word. Now we can see. We know the truth, but do we even care? Does it change our behavior at all? It might not be ironic, but is it optimistic? Don't ask The Thermals! Rumors of their death have been greatly under-exaggerated. Though NOT a concept record and NOT a sequel, Now We Can See picks up right where The Thermals left off, at the end of their last LP, 2006's The Body, The Blood, The Machine, when they were either obliterated by nuclear war, or walked the earth as the last living souls, until they dropped dead of quite unnatural causes. I don't know, the plot was a little hard to follow. Either way, the story continues, from beyond the grave! With catchy choruses!
