I think I like… Just don't really care for No Age. Something about their sound makes me believe I should, as it fits with other kinds of music that I would generally get into. It just doesn't have that oomph needed to catch my attention or set them apart from the rest of the noise rock pack. Fairly so so with no considerable standout tracks, the album isn't downright bad but certainly isn't going to be anything to write home about.

Favorite track: Sleeper Hold
NR
Has some great noisy indie rock tracks on it. There's also a few pointless ones, too. It might not be worth the hype, but it's worth a listen. Especially for those who follow indie rock and want something a little different.

No matter how many reviews I read praising this album, I will never understand what makes everyone love it. It's a fun, chaotic, noisy, experimental album that does nothing but occasionally impress and disappoint. I appreciate the catchy guitar riffs, dreamy layering, and beautiful soundscapes. Even then, I'm unsure as to why everyone will call this one of their favorite modern rock records. I guess everything just feels a bit unorganized

I swear, this record never gets old. It's got some of the most loud yet catchy riffs I've ever heard with some solid drumming. Not to mention, there's some nice ambient tracks on this thing, but I do think they slow down the action a little bit which is disappointing. Overall, this is easily one of my favorite albums of the 2000s.

Favorite Tracks: Miner, Eraser, Things I Did When I Was Dead, Sleeper Hold, Here Should Be My Home, Ripped Knees, Brain Burner

Least Favorite Track: Keechie
