    Sparky debut from trio in thrall to US post-hardcore. [July 2010, p. 135]
  2. Nothing Hurts ends up being its own worst enemy: it obscures its biggest strengths, choosing not to showcase them but to drown them out in a familiar and uninteresting haze.

    It's a short album, just 30 minutes, and "Weird Feelings" is one song that stands for most: full of hooks and sparks it's fun while it lasts but over in two minutes and too easily forgotten.

    Although the album starts off with a bang, it all starts to sound awfully similar after three tracks. [Spring 2010, p.72]

I'm digging it, it's gonna be in my cd player for a while. Full Review »
