4.0 out of 5 stars Iceage, 1 May 2013
This review is from: You're Nothing (Audio CD)
With You're Nothing, Iceage, a Danish Punk band bring us their second album. It's not all Punk though, and you can see this in first track "Ecstasy" which channels some post-punk and their are also some Noise Rock vibes flowing through the album. But the first track works really well going back and forth from Hardcore Punk to Post-Punk. The vocals on the album is how I feel the vocals should have been on Bring Me The Horizon's latest album, they should take note.

The album stays energetic for it's entire length of not even thirty minuets, but it is still longer than White Lung's Sorry. The only track where there is a lack of energy is in "Interlude" which feels out of place because of this. It's not as if it's at 1:44 but it's unnecessary, it doesn't tie two songs together, it doesn't really work as an intro, it's just sat there.

The album cruises along at a constant pace of Punk, feeling aggressive on "Burning Hand" and "In Haze" but not quite going to the sound of the album's opener. But this is where we get to the bass heavy tracks "Morals" and "Everything Drifts."

"Morals" starts with the bass plodding along at an energetic pace with piano in the background, it feels very light but moody. The tempo changes for the chorus and it really gets going. The whole song works well with this blend of an unusual verse chorus formula, it's like a roller-coaster that you want to turn up really loud and head-bang to.

"Everything Drifts" gives us bass and more bass with a bass intro and a bass break. It's one of the more old school Punk moments on the album. I feel the modern sounding vocals that sing more than scream/shout/growl, they are clearer but still maintain a Punk feel which gives this album life. The song goes strong until the break where it gains almighty strength, I just wish it was longer and slightly more progressive, but this is Punk.

The rest of the album doesn't really come back after the double bill, it carries on the same energy as before but lacks to go anywhere. But it still shakes you and makes you listen. It keeps you going and in it's short length it never drags. It keeps going and you want to make it too the end, although I did find album closer disappointing, maybe because it was the end.

Overall, whilst lacking in progression, it's a blast and you'll love it for the brief time it's on.

7/10
