  1. This is a sensational place to get acquainted with the immortal wonder of drones. [Aug 2005, p.178]
  2. They accomplish what most rock bands only dream of: the subtle transcendence of genre, form, and the music itself.
  3. Never have the usually mischievous Boredoms sounded this focused and, well, downright elegant really -- a masterful pairing of cosmic rock and spiritual jazz references.

    By its very generic nature, Seadrum/House Of Sun sounds more like background music than anything the Boredoms have ever recorded. [#68, p.87]
  5. 60
    No boredom here. [Jul/Aug 2005, p.108]
  6. If Sea Drum/ House of Sun was the debut album from some little-known psych act, I’d be hailing it as one of the year’s best records.... But from the Boredoms, Seadrum/House of Sun is nothing special.
  7. This record is worth having, but offers little more than a slow orbiting tour of familiar Boredoms territory.
