  • Summary: Championed (and signed) by the White Stripes' Jack White, this spare, Michigan-based keyboard-bass-drums trio has been labeled by Rolling Stone as this generation's Devo. White produced this debut LP, which was mixed by Mercury Rev's Dave Fridmann. And why the album title? According to the band's website, "We all love rabbits." Expand

  1. 86
    Bizarre and punkish and freakish and good. [#5, p.91]
  2. Has the abrupt, spasmodic intensity of an epileptic seizure. [June 2003, p.94]
  3. For all the sludge and fuzz on the album, Do Rabbits Wonder? never becomes muddy; the grit and gristle of Whirlwind Heat's abrasive repertoire of sounds remains clearly defined even at its most crazed.
  4. It's not all bad, though, as the album possesses a killer repertoire of filthy bass lines and an undeniable pedal-to-the-metal verve. [Aug 2003, p.116]
  5. 60
    It's an abrasive sound. [Aug 2003, p.99]
  6. Heat can't find a melody to save their Moog. [18 Apr 2003, p.70]
  7. It's mind-boggling that such sloppily arranged, barely listenable stuff is getting this kind of attention, but that's celebrity for you.

    i loved this album. i dont know it well but i have listened to clips of all the songs and love them all. not one of the songs is a disappointment, all are great and fun to listen to. i only found out about this band by watching kerrangs 'banned' programme when the song 'purple' came on. overall, its excellent!

    I recently purchased this album after listening to it on multiple free of charge services available on the web, such as launchcast. It's an amazing album and I, much like others, will probably expect a lot from their future albums. But a very nice start, refreshing. Expand

    this was the worst album i'd ever heard. they're even worse (which is barely feasable) live.
