    El Khatib and Auerbach pull off their modest yet elusive goal--to make a kickass record from start to finish--with brutal elegance. [Jul 2013, p.75]

    HEK’s second album makes him sound more confident, distinct and comfortable in his own skin but thankfully not more fancier than his 2011 debut.

    Head in The Dirt, the SF native’s sophomore offering, shows a delightfully vast range of influences.

    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]

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