    It doesn't keep up the quality all the way through but given his relentless enthusiasm from start to finish, El Khatib is probably used to people not keeping up with him. [Oct 2013, p.101]

    [The album] runs from garage rock to impressive reggae-tinged fuzzstompers. [Sep 2013, p.93]

    Head In The Dirt successfully picks up where El Khatib’s debut left off.

    For the most part, his rasping punk is a sexy but grotty treat.

    For all of its weirdness, this album feels more like a pop record than his debut, and while Auerbach certainly didn't scrub all of the dirt and grime off of the album, it feels a lot more put together, bearing a lot of resemblance to the Black Keys' later work.

    He's less convincing as a badass ("Family") than as a guy who fights desperation by partying ("Low").
