  1. In four minutes of this record there are two tracks that together have more melodies, more moments of joy, than most bands will manage this year.
  2. The result is purest punk bubblegum, and deserves to be blasted long and loud all summer long.
  3. It's lo-fi at its finest and a contender for one of the more impressive debuts of the year so far. Fans of the genre will lap it up and with very good reason: it's short, sharp and straight to the point.
  4. Nothing Hurts is a strong debut, even when it's gentle.
  5. The lyrics do little to stand out, but that hardly blights the rest of the experience. And none of the 13 tracks on Nothing Hurts tops the 2:45 mark, so it’s a speedy listen.
  6. The album coasts through 13 songs in just 29 minutes, making for a seemingly perfect setlist of distorted, high-energy punk.
  7. Under The Radar
    40
    Although the album starts off with a bang, it all starts to sound awfully similar after three tracks. [Spring 2010, p.72]

    Sure it may be overwhelmingly influenced by British punk rock and early 90's alternative but it sounds pretty damn refreshing and Sure it may be overwhelmingly influenced by British punk rock and early 90's alternative but it sounds pretty damn refreshing and energetic when compared to some of the other albums this year. I'm digging it, it's gonna be in my cd player for a while. Expand
