    Rock music's era of overarching influence on culture has no doubt passed into the historical twilight, but artistry and ambition in the form is alive and well on records like Hp-1.

    In spite of the ostensible lull of its distorted, discordant undertow, the album forcibly draws attention, not just to itself, but to the corrupted world around it. Rarely has an album so narcotic felt so sobering.

    It's easy to see how the impact of this sort of music might be lost on record, but White Hills put their studio to great use here, proving they can sound both impressively cohesive and totally baked.

    Might well be their strongest, most brain-mulching statement to date. [Aug. 2011, p. 106]

    If one didn't care for White Hills before, this won't change a mind. Of their recorded material, however, White Hills' latest is perhaps their best; short of an in-person experience of the band's eardrum-shattering performances

    Some listeners might run screaming but the band's tenacity is admirable, which keeps it exciting.

    H-p1 is a slightly more adventurous outing than usual, due to the recruitment of synth player Shazzula, but the additional textures, pleasing as they are, fail to revolutionize what is essentially record collection rock. [Jul 2011, p.58]
