    The eight tracks here are more high definition than most of what he's done in his career, with all the various noisy elements easily distinguishable and with more depth than usual.

    All My Relations isn’t a replacement for a brand new Lightning Bolt album, the last one of which dropped in 2009, but it scratches many of those itches, while also fully justifying existence on its own terms.

    All My Relations makes a few nods to conventional songwriting, but, really, it’s just as dense and repetitive as anything the drummer has ever put out.

    Another big fat splat of technicolour vomit from Lightning Bolt drummer Brian Chippendale's solo project. [Apr 2013, p.51]

    On record, it's certainly a jolt, and not just a pile of drum-driven aural overload, but something does get lost in the process.

    Clarity (albeit relative) sounds surprisingly good on Chippendale, and one has to wonder how far he’ll continue to push his tribal weirdness in this direction.

    It's all quite a bit to take in, and All My Relations is an admittedly exhausting listen from start to finish.
