    I'm afraid that people are looking much deeper into Whirlwind Heat than is needed. They are a fun band with fun music that is fun to listen to. 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 I'm afraid that people are looking much deeper into Whirlwind Heat than is needed.

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.

    "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 "Do Rabbits Wonder?" was truly a waste of everyone's time. Is this album weaker? You bet!!

Seeing them support the White Stripes I was sickened by their pretension and lack of talent. Expand

    The band's anti-everything style can get annoying if you don't have the patience for heavy doses of idiosyncrasy in your rock. [Jul 2006, p.204]
  2. New Musical Express (NME)

    So unashamedly beaming with the spirit of 1991 that it should be wearing a flannel shirt and a woozy expression. [22 Apr 2006, p.41]
  3. An album of repetitive, insipid riffs: eleven tracks flakier than chippings and more irritating to your facial passages than toxic MDF sawdust.
