Stoned, vengeful, pointless, and so very good. Takes the Real Estate/Yuck garage band movement and sends it crashing down to Earth in an unglorious, depressive implosion. Sinister, pessimistic, and ultimately tragic, Cloud Nothing's Attack On Memory is a triumph.
On every song of this album I can hear all of the untapped potential and greatness that this band is capable of and so close to reaching with Attack On Memory, but they fall just short and it in turn keeps me from liking the album as much as I feel like I could
So simplistic and so raw, truly a great rock album. With Steve Albini handling production Cloud Nothings take the time to write some great post-hardcore influenced rock songs. From the pop structures Stay Useless to the epic crescendo of Wasted Days this album has something for everyone.
