Everything blends together resulting in a triumphant finale.
“Good For Nothin’” is an immaculate pop song. BeX’s voice alongside the positive message found driving the song is stunning. The careful arrangement sounding just like it is about to careen out of control yet remaining fully in control is a thing of true beauty.
