  1. Whereas before Embrace always harboured that tendency to fuss over minutiae, to pore over every detail with such attention that betrayed self-consciousness, their fourth studio album, Out Of Nothing, finally sees them free of their own fastidiousness.
  2. Out Of Nothing is a wonderfully affecting album that is the band's best to date.
  3. Never have they turned in an effort as pretty or economical as Out of Nothing.
  4. If only Embrace gave us more of the spacey, Mercury Rev-style psychedelia of "Near Life" (sans McNamara's poorly mumbled vocals), it'd be easier to forgive their lack of imagination.
  5. 60
    Well; it could've been worse.
  6. Although these songs of attempted triumph comprise the band’s strongest material yet, they still lack the originality that will shed them of the “underrated” label they’ve worn for the last decade.
  7. A pompous, painfully tacky string of infomercial rock.
