  1. Q Magazine

    Infectious, sun-bleached and psychedelic--the welcome return of a South American institution. [Oct 2009, p.114]
  2. Mojo
    80
    Gloriously nonsensical and beautifully out there, this is a joyful triumph. [Oct 2009, p.107]
  3. Reunited (partially) in 2006 by the acclaim of their fans, Os Mutantes sound just as vital as they did back in 1968 on Haih...Ou Amortecedor.
  4. In spite of the occasional misstep, Haih Or Amortecedor is rhapsodic, an endearing tribute, and a welcome addition, to one of pop music’s strangest group of musicians.
  5. All in all though, it's good to hear a new Os Mutantes record that carries forward the ideals and exploratory spirit that made us all love the band in the first place, even if it won't ever supplant those classic early albums.
  6. Haih or Amortecedor is a deliberate but merry throwback. Its new songs reclaim the early Mutantes sound.
  7. Under The Radar
    50
    While the album has great moments, it sounds like a band unable to recreate past glory. [Fall 2009, p.65]
