Please purchase & support, this won't be on streaming; but if you're just too strapped for cash during these crazy times, hmu I'll try and hook u up.

I really enjoy it, despite getting minimal press or social media hype. Takes a more light approach than most of theirs with a taste of a more psych and 60's pop influence flavoring their songwriting.
69's not bad, it's kinda of enjoyable even but it really fails to leave any sort of impact on me at all.

i for one have never been crazy about their punk sound and a change of pace looked interesting but it's mostly just underwhelming.

"The Black Hole Understands" feels more like a detour than anything else guess for what it is...i don't mind?
give it a listen or don' won't be missing much either way.

But this is an even bigger disservice to the band and their fans by making an album so devoid of quality that it makes their two glorious albums look even more pathetic. No wonder it's not going to be on streaming services. Total shit. Sad.
The latest from Dylan Baldi and company is a pleasant little surprise for the most part.

Cloud Nothings shows that they are the most uneven band. They can release massive tracks on mediocre albums (Attack on Memory), great collabs (No Life for Me) and solo albums after which you cannot get shit together (Last Building Burning) as well as stinky staff (Cloud Nothings). In case The Black Hole Understands we get a dull, although not terrible but surely non-exhilarating, indie rock with strong emo influence.
