    As pleasurable it is to listen to, Hair sounds like it was even more fun to bash out.

    [The songs] are peculiarly absorbing, and they only grow more so with repeated listening.

    One for genre fans only, probably, but one for them to cherish.

    Their unholy powers combined, they give us Hair, a raucous, psychedelic guitar skirmish that transcends descriptions of its creators' individual works.

    There's a strong sense of pop hooks all over and with a rock vibe that is both heavily-induced and rendered, Segall and Presley have delivered a terrific debut.

    What's it sound like? A lot like Segall's proper solo material, frankly.

    It's not ground breaking, but its commitment to creating an authentically deranged vibe could see your fringe grow an inch with every song. [Jun 2012, p.109]

    Not to shabby. I listened to Ty Segall's album "Goodbye Bread" last year and thought that it was great. This year, he has come out with more songs that have a very similar feel to them as "Goodbye Bread". Overall, it showcases nice guitar riffs and catchy beats. Well done Ty. Expand

    On the "Hair" we will find in greater extent songs falling under the classic rock genre. Starting from the lethargic "Time" somewhat reminiscent of Elliot Smith's achievements, through a truly exuberant "I Am Not A Game" supported by lots of synthesizers thanks to whom song seems to refer to the '60s and '70s and finally the kind of lo-fi "Scissor People". It should be mentioned that almost all ofthe songs are performed in the same style where instrumental parts and solos were taken really seriously - which may resemble the band Thee Oh Sees. Expand
