    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

    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.

    Segall's charms are as abundant as his releases: may his well never run dry. [Jun 2012, p.84]

    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]

    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.
