I feel icky listening to this. The vocals are so annoying and it's trying so hard to be artistically edgy. I can appreciate the mix of sounds on this album, each song has it's own identity, but it's horribly grating to slog through the bad tracks to get to the moderately high points that aren't even strong enough to justify the experience.

A nice, fun collection of industrial rap rock bangers. All of the singles were S-tier, and a few of the new tracks hit hard also, but after 6 or 7 tracks in, everything just started blending together, and a couple cuts became super forgettable. I'll be coming back to this one a lot for sure.

People are gonna be complaining about me ranking Mainstream Sellout higher than that new Soul Glo album when that album is real punk.

Wait until they hear this album.

Eu já tinha ouvido as Nova Twins antes por causa da afropunk, e ouvir esse álbum me deixou muito animado, que qualidade impecável. O álbum é uma explosão rock, com uma junção distorcida de outros estilos, é autêntico e tem ótimas composições. Algumas faixas chamam mais atenção do que outras, mas que mesmo assim não tiram o brilho do álbum.

Yeah, no.

Nova Twins are a duo that I only know off of 'Cleopatra' (which I heard on the radio), and their really good feature on the Bring Me The Horizon EP. So when I saw that the critics really, really liked this album, I figured I'd give it a listen and was frankly disappointed.

We'll start with the positives. 'Toolbox' is a pretty good song, and probably the best on the album. Sometimes the sound palette can be pretty cool, and the rapping is good. But that's pretty much it.

Okay I know it's an ugly word to some people. Nu Metal. This is front to back TOTALLY a nu metal record, but that's not a bad thing. The Twins do an admirable job of making catchy songs in the style, with the only glaring flaws being some pretty generic chug riffs. Their personalities do carry this to be a fun record, but I'd like to see some more instrumental creativity to push them over the top.

I went into this expecting a bodacious rap record based purely off of the cover alone with no prior knowledge of who the nova twins were, and boy the whiplash I got was wild, bananas even

Combining Rina Sawayama with Rage Against the Machine (Tom Morello once called them ”the best band you’ve never heard of.”), Amy Love and Georgia South (looking similar don’t make you twins, girls) keep making urban punk that I would assume sounds better live than it does on record. Play it loud or not at all - otherwise, you might start listening too carefully to the lyrics and that will probably make you cringe, too (”I’m a samurai, samurai, samurai, dancer ... read more

Sophomore lp from nova twins brings catchy and heavy headbangers. No way to hate this when it’s just so fun and enjoyable. Great shit

Há um tempo atrás eu comecei a ouvir Nova Twins e tinha achado genial o que elas traziam pro punk, e quando começaram os singles desse álbum eu fiquei bem otimista porque tinha gostado de todos e me decepcionei nem um pouco.
Amy e Geórgia em Supernova fizeram com que esse álbum fosse uma grande explosão, punk rock em sua melhor forma.
Mas o que mais gostei é que é um álbum elétrico e explosivo do início ao ... read more

Nova Twins smokin on critics top 5 tonight

This is hot ass. I thought the first song (besides the intro) was pretty decent. But all the rest of the songs would be a similar experience.
The vocals on this project are really hit or miss. In the first half of the album they were alright for the most part. But then in the second half, the Nova Twins whip out the worst vocal inflections imaginable. On "Toolbox" especially, the vocal inflections are different every few seconds, and still ... read more

It is an interesting fusion of genres, can't help but think of Rina Sawayama with the pop-ish harmonies, hooks, and production and heavy rock guitars and beats.

I liked it, although the lyrics are basically the female version of 80s cock rock.

i'm not a huge fan of the lyricism, and some songs feel a little formulaic, but overall, supernova is an enjoyable listen. reminds me in parts of sasami's recent album squeeze and worldwide torture by jazmin bean. definitely a pretty cool project
