    Iceage blew up a couple years ago in the indie punk scene with New Brigade, a record with the length of only 22 minutes, but a sledgehammer force of punk rock that I couldn't shake off for weeks. Now, You're Nothing shows that a bigger production can really make or break a band. In this case, it broke them.

Now, You're Nothing shows that a bigger production can really make or break a band. In this case, it broke them. The amount of distortion in the guitars completely obscure the vocals to a point where it's inaudible. The songs lack the impact the first record had so many of. I'll admit, a few tracks were great, especially Awake, but mostly forgettable.

    All In All, if you're gonna give Iceage a shot, don't start with this album. You're ten times better off with New Brigade. C

    For a band with so many fascinating implications, You're Nothing's catchiness shouldn't be overlooked.

    For as strong as much of the material on You’re Nothing may be, it is an uneven record, without the focus or pacing of its predecessor.
  3. Whatever genre you’re into, whatever your favourite publication has said about these guys; Iceage are here to stay and You’re Nothing is one of the best albums of its time.
