    This ain't no Chickenfoot; this is the really really real deal.

    The album's many ragged parts [are wrapped] into a rocking and rollicking package. [No.86, p.52]

    The sextet deliver delightfully, dingy, wholly impressible rawk. [May 2012, p.75]

    Even if this act is Deer Tick 2.0, this is still an album of infectious, ultra-grimy blues-rock tunes from dudes who've mastered the equation and then some.

    [A] ragged rock 'n' roll debut with vigorous grit, while Robbie Crowell's drawled, anecdotal lyrics add dive-bar sleaze. [May 2013, p.96]

    The resultant album is exactly what you’d expect from this mix of personnel.

    Despite the raucous vibe, Diamond Rugs is flawed - scattered, unfocused, and rather long, at 14 tracks.
