    Mind Control [is] as entertaining as the schlock horror flicks which informed it. [May 2013, p.86]

    Mind Control may occasionally lack the outright mania of its predecessor but this is music made in a puff of red smoke, heady and hypnotic. [Jun 2013, p.90]

    It's an accomplished, evilly wrought set piece, but the acid-etched disco blues of "Poison Apple" is a standout. [May 2013, p.79]

    The music on their third album, Mind Control, shows a broader vocabulary of anachronism.

    It's hard not to be drawn into their occult world. [Jun 2013, p.99]

    Although Blood Lust remains their crowning achievement to date, Mind Control's highlights shine just as true.

    Most of the songs on Mind Control are worth a few spins, but nothing on here quite matches “I'll Cut You Down” from Uncle Acid's 2011 album Bloodlust.

    What a great album and no reviews? Well here goes. Great instrumentally, lyrically, with pop hooks. It really is like watching a horror flick sonically taken as a whole. Too bad not many people seem to know about this album because they are "doom" metal. I don't listen to made up irrelevant genres. Just good music. This is easily one of the best albums of the year.
