Super groups are a tricky thing; The Damned Things were brilliant and raw, Boxcar Racer was a childhood favorite that shined a light on what was to come for Blink 182, United Nations was chaotic and pissed people off. On the other hand, you have super groups where the members want to break the mold and create something new. For NK, consisting of Ryan Hunter (Envy on the Coast), Michael Sardis (The Rivalry), and Billy Rymer (Dillinger Escape Plan), their debut album Nothing to Be Gained Here was, unfortunately, just that. I gained nothing after listening to it. I was bored and constantly checked my iTunes to see how many songs were left.
