King of the Beach
has been making the rounds since its digital release in June and most critical accounts of the album have been generally positive. As with the last Wavves
album, however, the biggest critics don't seem to be the people who get paid to do it, but rather, the music-consuming public who tend to lob the same set of complaints at the band's brief discography: Nathan Williams can't sing, pop-punk suxxx, the only things he sings about are weed and the beach and, to top it off, Williams is a bratty rich kid.
