CRITIC REVIEWS

90
NME

In the end, ‘You’re Nothing’ is a sort of toast: to loud music, hard drinking and the energy of the unbroken.

90
No Ripcord

But brooding in a deeper level of sonic misery and great hooks doesn’t necessarily make You’re Nothing the excellent punk album it manages to be, as it’s the growth the band displays throughout the album that really makes it worthwhile.

86
Pitchfork

Iceage write brilliant songs; on You're Nothing, they've found a way to clarify these compositional skills without stripping away their power.

85
Beats Per Minute

The success of Iceage’s sophomore effort lies in the newfound earnestness of Rønnenfelt’s lyrics and vocal performance.

85
The 405

As a whole, You're Nothing is an engaging listen, filled with small intricacies which continue to be discovered play after play.

83
Pretty Much Amazing

These songs are high on energy, heavy on noise, and sloppy on rhythm – together, it’s an exhilarating rush of in-your-face songs.

80
DIY

'You're Nothing' is the magnificent transition from teens powered by punk angst to men mastering aggressive rock songs.

80
Consequence of Sound

The real takeaway from this record should be that his band is officially worth the hype they have generated, and are capable of a whole lot more than we ever anticipated.

80
PopMatters

Drawing you in precisely because it is so uncompromising and unrelenting, You’re Nothing is anything but nothing, a rare album where you can tell the artists put everything into it and you get just as much out of it.

75
A.V. Club

Iceage’s sophomore disc may not match the jagged punch and pulse of its debut, but it points the way toward an escape from its frigid, self-imposed cell.

74
Paste

Rønnenfelt’s vocals— still in the throes of puberty, mostly screamed in English, on the verge of going hoarse—carry the most weight. Broken down, his lyrics fall into standard-issue Anger 101, us-against-them territory. But it feels empty at times. 

70
musicOMH

You’re Nothing is as obtuse, noisy, amateur, and sometimes thrillingly good as its predecessor.

70
Under The Radar

Considering how this band is just out of their teens with two accomplished albums under their belts, the only thing more interesting than watching these songs played live will be seeing how this band grows from here.

60
Drowned in Sound

Despite its abrasiveness, You’re Nothing is resolutely conservative in its insular aim of pleasing the only audience that matters: Iceage themselves.

"But bliss is momentary anyhow/ Yet worth living for."

A real white-knuckle experience, combining punk and noise with equal urgency and ferocity. I just wanna bang my head relentlessly with Ecstasy.

Compared to their debut, "You're Nothing" isn't quite as abrassive or hard hitting and to the point as "New Brigade". But instead, Iceage have crafted a good set of songs that with a bit more melody, structure and breathing room really lets the emotion of Elias Rønnenfelts vocals get across quite a bit harder this time around. It also helps the tracks stand on more solid ground on there own, since the added melodies and shifts in intensity helps the songs be more ... read more
