    Segall spent six months writing and recording Goodbye - his longest investment in a record yet. The time spent soaking in the classics has paid off.

    Goodbye Bread is filled with such rich, breathtaking moments, and Segall, who plays every instrument here, sounds as though he's savoring every part of process.

    Goodbye Bread is a fitting development on an impeccable path. The depth accomplished through five albums is obviously grand and it's definitely as if Segall is purely improving with every passing year.

    With Goodbye Bread, he ushers himself to the fore of the pack of current garage-psych revivalists. [Jul 2011, p.87]

    While Reatard had his antecedents, he swung his music violently into alien terrain; Goodbye Bread is an entertaining trad-rock record made by a talented tunesmith who'd rather make love than war.

    Ty Segall culls some some of his scene's most appealing aspects and affixes them to unusually-written, melodically appealing songs; in essence, he's an ideal ambassador for his Bay Area milieu.

    Despite the flaws, you can't deny that Segall's got real talent, which would be wasted if he just stuck to the psych/garage throwback formula.

    Like the Black Lips, Ty Segall cleaned up his act (just a little) for his latest album, and he ended up with the best album of his career thus far. At the very least, make sure you add "Goodbye Bread" and "You Make The Sun Fry" to your iTunes library. You can pick up the latter song for free on Pitchfork. Expand
