    Frankly, it’s a delightful, demented journey into pure psych chaos. Essential listening.

    Intense, relentless and spellbinding. [Oct 2013, p.65]

    e. This all-or-nothing approach makes Deep Trip an exhilarating listen that's just as capable of amping listeners up with its vital punk energy as it is freaking them out with its surging undercurrent of mind-altering sludge, making for yet another feather in the cap of Sacred Bones and their ever-growing lineup of head trip-inducing bands.

    The mixture of mournfulness, savagery, lo-fi spirit and noise should appeal to psych fans and college rockers, metalheads and hardcore punks alike.

    If space-rock as a whole is a role-playing game, one in which its players imagine having front-row seats for the heat-death of the universe, then Deep Trip is the one of most advanced vehicles yet designed to take them there.

    Too many records are boring. This one is visceral and scary, which is an improvement.

    The arid sands of the southwest might not be the most fertile, but over the course of eight tracks of expansive noise jams, Destruction Unit find a way to make that ground bear strange but rewarding musical fruit.

    Deep Trip lives up to its name, just as each song does. Form matches content.

    There's a huge lack of definition, and even with the volume cranked high, the dynamic surge previous albums from the group have led us to expect is absent.
