On previous releases the Weepies fought back creeping gloom with hopeful words and honeyed melodies. This time, Deb Talan and Steve Tannen display a more positive outlook, though even their happiest songs carry a wistful undercurrent. Be My Thrill may reflect the couple’s status as proud parents – certainly, the baby-talk lyrics in “Red Red Rose” and the tender tunefulness of “Not a Lullaby” sound very child-friendly. Musically, Be My Thrill shows an affection for the simple elegance of pre-Beatles pop, with “They’re In Love, Where Am I?” achieving a particular grace. Talan’s girlish-but-wise vocals catch the right sense of yearning in “Hummingbird” and strike a teasing stance in the title number. Tannen steps out on such quirky tracks as “How Do You Get High?,” a playful number reminiscent of ZZ Top (honest!). The wry sense of acceptance pervading “Empty Your Hands” may sum up the album’s attitude overall. The Weepies may have found a measure of contentment, but Be My Thrill shows they haven’t surrendered to mindless bliss.
