Sounds From Nowheresville is a blast when it’s on and imminently forgettable when it’s not.

Consequence of Sound

De Martino and White haven’t hit an equilibrium yet, but at this creative trajectory, they will– and maybe sooner rather than later.

50
NME

It just sounds a little bereft of ideas, and way too short.

45
Beats Per Minute

There’s virtue in this album, but you have to look quite hard for it

Sounds From Nowheresville is rather more of a mish-mash of different ideas that have varying success rates.

40
Drowned in Sound

Sounds From Nowheresville is a mish-mash of different things, none of which are really that good.

40
No Ripcord

Ten fairly short bursts of naive noise isn't really a great return on two years of solid work.

40
PopMatters

Sounds from Nowheresville is sluggish, self-conscious, and seemingly deliberately bad

This is my first real impression of The Ting Tings, so I'm not sure if I'm considered credible by fans of the band. But I've thoroughly enjoyed these songs throughout the year. It's fun, poppy, indie rock with a little twist. Soul Killing is, in my opinion, a classic song. This isn't a "deep" record, I guess. But I imagine it's one of those that will receive its rightful praise in perhaps thirty years from now. Just wait...
