    OK, it may not be not that timeless, but it's still high quality work from a youngster who is off to a fine start in the indie rock game.

    Miller has done a decent job here; there’s nothing particularly striking or eye-opening about the album or its songs, but their simplicity and Miller’s all-round talent suggest some real promise.

    The flaw here is that all these songs together are too much to absorb, but Miller probes deeply without ever coming off as sappy, skillfully weaving through breakups, self-loathing, skipping school, and poor decisions without sticking to his own sadsack introspection.

    With echoes of everyone from Big Star to Elliott Smith, Bored Nothing have sufficient promise to be really something. [Jul 2013, p.71]

    Intimate, unpolished and worth getting to know.

    Some judicious pruning would have helped, but this is a promising first step forwards, even if it spends it s entire running time looking backwards. [May 2013, p.96]

    Ultimately, it’s all just too lazy. Yes, I know that’s the point, but this really is slacking overkill.
