Overhyped? Hell yeah. Overrated? You bet. But what British newcomer with halfway decent hooks isn’t these days? “That’s Not My Name,” the clubby single that propelled Nothing to the top of the U.K. album charts, wears thin after a few spins, but the disc’s back half—specifically the peppy pop of “Keep Your Head” and “Be the One” and the funky/punky title track—actually merits some attention.
