  1. An album of repetitive, insipid riffs: eleven tracks flakier than chippings and more irritating to your facial passages than toxic MDF sawdust.

    "Do Rabbits Wonder?" was truly a waste of everyone's time. Is this album weaker? You bet!! I had to satisfy my sick curiosity by "Do Rabbits Wonder?" was truly a waste of everyone's time. Is this album weaker? You bet!! I had to satisfy my sick curiosity by listening to it in a music store. I stopped halfway. How does a band like Whirlwind Heat get well known? A famous friend and that's all. Out of all of the unsigned, unknown bands I've seen live, even the worst of them deserve more exposure than this pathetic try hard trio. Seeing them support the White Stripes I was sickened by their pretension and lack of talent. Full Review »

It's obvious that they aren't The White Stripes' long lost twin as most hoped they would become, but instead, it's damn near impossible to find a band that vaguely resembles Whirlwind Heat and manages to pull it off like they do. While "Types of Wood" is completely different (and a bit weaker) than their last release "Do Rabbits Wonder," it still manages to pack a punch that is hard to find these days in music.
