3 stars Continuing my idiotic journey, I arrived to the land of show that shows basically nothing (as title suggests). Their habit of possessing funny sounding instrument is present here too, it is again freak show, but its potential isn't as great as I would like it to be.

First few songs are disappointment, they don't show much and when they do, it's boring and too repetitive. Where "Fancy" was innovative, "Nothing Show" is lazy and greedy to offer something interesting. There is even rapping featured, I'm not sure if it's intended to shock, or it's just there because they felt it's a good thing. I don't like it so I'll pass.

Boring to be honest, even "Fancy" shows repetitive elements too, it uses them more cleverly, in a way it is good to listen.

Second part (roughly, starting after blank Mouth is far better and gives much needed variety, crazy element (not stoned repeating that is supposed to be fun, but it isn't - I'm all for repeating, when it's done in a right way). Weird factor is graduating.

But overall simply isn't as attractive as their last album which I see as their best.

3(+), not as good as their last album, but for some it may be interesting for some.
