    Hypnotic Nights still delivers all of the brilliant power pop worship that we've all come to love from JEFF the Brotherhood, and if the album isn't able to kick off your summer, nothing will.

    The production may be a little cleaner, but the same knack for great fuzzed-out ditties is still there... a pretty good album.

    What's impressive is even though the duo ventures into new sonic territory, the knack for catchy melodies and heavy riffs remains, making this new direction both true to their roots and indicative of huge maturation.

    This record is crawling with too many hooks and good-time jams to quibble over guitar tone.

    The duo shows maturation musically and lyrically, albeit wildly, proving that they are true, spirited forces to be reckoned with.

    A super-catchy mix of stadium-rock bombast and punk simplicity. [No.90, p.57]

    Hypnotic Nights continues with the Weezer worship introduced on 2011's We Are the Champions, but answers the fuzz-pop frivolity with equal doses of motorik groove and psychedelic drone.

    Hypnotic Nights is a raucous, enjoyable fare of summertime fluff.

    Hypnotic Nights is a little more stoner-y than last year's speed-crazed We Are the Champions, and it's got a good-natured sense of slacker irony.

    The Orralls might have benefited from a little extra direction in the songwriting department.

    It's the simpler stuff that's special.
