    The sound these garage-sound guys are able to replicate from the sixties is not to be overlooked, nor are the lovely hooks or lyrics. The guitar, sound, and vocals are a throwback but still pepper in fresh sentiments about the beach and heartbreak. Although there are only a couple of standout tracks, it does have a cohesiveness. It's a must-have for anyone who enjoys garage rock purists.

    The entire album is amazing, but, Ela Navega kind of kills it in the middle. Just take out that song from your playlist and enjoy on repeat all summer long.

    A spectacular, modern take on a classic, timeworn formula.

    Allah-Las are ultimately preoccupied with sound above all else. So long as there are 12-string guitars, four-piece drumkits, and lots and lots of reverb, the rest of the world can go away.

    With little meat on the bones, it's difficult wrap your jaws around and as those occasional deep-filled prog wig-outs keep slipping away, they provide a glimmer of hope, but the doses are far too small and far too measured to have any real effect.
