Language Advisory: This is a live concert recording, and may not contain language suitable for all audiences.

The Thermals' sound may not vary wildly from album to album, but why should it? Speedball punk built around a sharp sense of pop craftsmanship, the band's songs careen giddily from strength to strength. But The Thermals' Hutch Harris still has plenty of different things to say: He's tackled the intersection of religion and politics (in 2006's near-perfect The Body The Blood The Machine), issues of life and especially death (in 2009's Now We Can See), and the thorny world of relationships (in last year's Personal Life).

Recorded live at The Gorge on Saturday, May 28, the band performs a set spanning all five of its albums as part of the 2011 Sasquatch Music Festival outside Seattle, Wash.
