Thunder and Consolation was the release that brought NMA to the masses, and saw the beginnings of the folk elements enter into their sound. It still has the same basic punk attitude and classic rock sensibilities as before, but is less reliant on the bass. It instead presents a more traditional song structure. Most artists are lucky to get one perfect album in their career; NMA have three or four of them, of which T+C is one. Let it wash over you and it'll maybe stir you to action, break you out of apathy and encourage you to look at the world in a less passive way.
