Naught is the second full-length album by Stolen Babies. Named by Rani Sharone, bassist for Stolen Babies, Naught represents hopelessness: all for naught. This album is darker than the prior album, There Be Squabbles Ahead. Many of the songs on Naught hit close to home for many of the members of Stolen Babies, and is a representation of their experiences at that time.[5] The album was released on September 18, 2012 in digital download format and on October 16, 2012 in CD format through No Comment Records.[6] On September 17, 2012, the album was made available for streaming on Soundcloud and Shockya.com.[7] Naught was voted #1 in Revolver's "Album of the Week" readers poll on October 22, 2012[8] and #7 in The Village Voice Blog's "Ten Best Metal Albums of 2012" by Linda Leseman.[9]
