Synopsis

Album Description
Thunder and Consolation begins grandly, keeping the keyboards from 'White Coats' on 'I Love the World,' an anthem filled with bittersweet irony and sarcasm. Self-produced, the album never falters, and the single "Stupid Questions" made an impression on American college and modern-rock radio, especially when working visas were granted to the band and they were allowed to tour the U.S. Violin was added by Ed Elain Johnson to further fill out the sound and give it an 'Irish Folk' quality on epic songs 'Green and Grey,' and 'Vagabonds.' The band uses samples on '225' and 'Green and Grey' to further enhance the flavor of the album. The remastered album come with a bonus disc which include associated B-sides, bonus tracks, non LP singles and live tracks.
 

CD Reviews

Another good one from NMA
Lac | 01/14/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Once again they tackle corperations, familial obligation, youthful passions and the environment in a cynical yet cleanly rendered album. This one is a far cry from "Vengeance" musically. It's very clean and layered without feeling like the usual chop shop play doh factory crap we get fed in the US. These guys can sing. And they can play. And they can write.

A classicly played violin will keen and then blend into the riff of an electric guitar. In "nothing touches" a guitar turns into a violin with fingerhammering and clever manipulation of the volume control.

It's clever, it's smart, it's clean and it's uniquly NMA."
