I definitely enjoy this. Up To The Surface and Enter Entirely are particularly good.

i thought this was pretty enjoyable but the aggression and uniqueness from the last album was definitely missing

Saw them live last night. Pretty standard gig, no crowd interaction, no encore and didn't play as much off Attack on Memory as I hoped for. Not the best live act but solid enough.

The mastering on this is incredibly bad, though that's kind of the norm for Cloud Nothings. I don't see how someone with ears could listen to this and be like, "yeah, that's how I want it to sound - like total garbage".

Certainly not awful, but can't hold a candle to Attack On Memory or Here And Nowhere Else. I love absolutely everything about those albums to the noise/fuzz, low production value, instrumental breakdowns, constantly increasing intensity etc. This just feels kinda generic and really offers little about what I loved about the previous two. Can't fault them for wanting to change things up, but this just doesn't do a lot for me.

Revisted this one today, as well as Here & Nowhere else. Internal World and Modern Act are decent enough tunes in a vacuum, but when backed up against their first two albums it’s easy to see why this doesn’t please the people who already liked this band. When I get around to rating this, it’s a hard 3.5.



I think it’s better than the Japandroids release that came out the same weekend.

Not enough insight into deafness, i.e. actual life without sound.

And then after that it's all good although sight unseen sounds kinda like it's trying to emulate the godliness of psychic trauma

actually like the production in here. the only record where i can hear the vocal clear. the other low fi productions scarified the vocal details.

I think this album is really underrated. It's grown on me hard over the years, and I love how it's the plodding album in their discography. Some very thoughtful stuff in here that plays beautifully with their other albums on shuffle together.

Completely right. I actually return to this album the most out of their discog. The songs have this transcendent quality to them that just really elevates the whole thing for me.

I honestly enjoy this more than Attack On Memory, no lie. It's got this perfect mix of sugar sweet melody and raw vocals.

The new album is probably my favorite of 2021 so far. Great stuff.

I went into this with low expectations but was pleasantly surprised. 'Modern Act' is addictive.

Digging: Wild Pink - A Billion Little Lights
