Burnout's debut album Thundertits is too slow. It's also unoriginal and it will put you to sleep if you try to make it all the way through the disc. Many bands have already played heavy, doomy stoner rock before, and most have sounded better than Burnout. Of the ten songs on Thundertits, there's only one that even pretends to be cool ("Superfuzz") and the rest just suck. I have listened to this album many times now, hoping that something will click: I'll become enlightened and understand the genius behind the band's work. Unfortunately, all this has done is made me angry for wasting my time listening to truly third rate, inexcusably dull music. Avoid.
