CRITIC REVIEWS

80
No Ripcord

On II, the band is able to find that middle ground between the acceptance of pop music’s limitations and its emotionally resonant core.

80
Spin

An exciting, impassioned, fuzzed-up, and smartly sticky album that plants a flag for some great forgotten sounds and practically screams promise for better glory days to come.

74
Pitchfork

II is a record created with the belief that a trebly guitar riff, a no-bullshit drum beat, and a heart-melting chorus can still rip out the hearts of hopeless romantics young and old. 

70
Under The Radar

The guitars are revved up, the melodies jaunty and sing-a-long, and the tunes catchy enough to stick in your head for days.

70
Consequence of Sound

Judging strictly from II, Nude Beach are within arm’s reach of that unique spirit, and prove to have enough chutzpah to carve out a timeless record. 

60
PopMatters

It’s like rock and roll comfort food. It’s easy to listen to and appropriately fun and catchy. Everything here is good, but nothing is great.
