On a more personal note, Talan and Tannen married each other in 2005. Then, shortly after the release of their third album in 2008, they became parents.

The personal stuff is worth noting, because it seeps its way into their music on Be My Thrill. Unlike their previous albums, which featured a nice mix of upbeat and more depressing material, Be My Thrill is almost entirely unabashedly happy material.

“I Was Made For Sunny Days” finds Talan singing about love and sunny days. It’s sugary, but the harmonies provided by Colbie Caillat help elevate the track. “Be My Thrill” and “Be My Honeypie” are slotted next to one another in track listing, and for good reason. Essentially, “Be My Thrill” is a love letter from Talan to Tannen, while “Be My Honeypie” is a love letter from Tannen to Talan. Of the two, “Be My Honeypie” is the superior track.

On “Not A Lullaby” the duo play with the conventional lullaby melody. It is the album’s most subdued track, but remains beautiful in its simplicity. “Not A Lullaby” is then followed by Be My Thrill’s most experimental song, “How Do You Get High.” The song is a rebel rousing track that the couple cut loose on.
