    Excellent album. Cosmic, mellow, patient and yet persistent in its attack and precision. Vocals are a collage of reminiscent flares of Black Angels and pre-BRMC Brian Jonestown Massacre. A beautiful landscape of raw melody that pounds its way into your ears and through the blood stream.
    Enjoy

    Seriously Good. Rarely does a d├ębut album shimmer like a gem in the dirt like Pearl Mystic. This music hypnotises haunts and excites. Do yourselves a favour and let it into your lives

    As Hookworms gain more confidence and their heady rhythms are spread further afield, hopes remain that future material might be slightly less veiled.

    While there are definitely moments on Pearl Mystic that do sound distinctly retro, it never ventures into the realms of parody. [Aug-Sep 2013, p.97]

    Audacious and urgent. [Jun 2013, p.74]
