    Segall takes us on a tour de force that is short and succinct in nature and delivery: the music swells with an infinite amount of pulse and drive and supported by Segall's remarkable ear for melody, it's simply another winner in his long-standing discography.

    All of this should be terrible or grating, but because it kisses and licks every flaw and quirk with such purposeful gusto, the result is immensely entertaining and kind of magical.

    This is dark, feverish garage rock as it's meant to be played.

    The results surge with the crackling, raw power of their notorious live performances.

    It's welcome progression for Segall and crew, one that's as enjoyable as it is ear-splintingly raucous.

    A swift punch of an album which inevitably hits some artistic limitations, but succinctly delivers all the timeless qualities of in-yer-face riffage from a snotty garage band.

    Powerful album, the extreme garage rock possible. The guitars are amazing: they're the base of the songs. Great distortions. The last song is mind blowing. One of the best of the year! Expand

    This is a very exciting and unexpected release. I am glad someone is making music like this out there! It's like Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti meets (Insert your fave metal/garage band here) ________. Expand

    Ty Segall has been setting the garage rock scene on fire for the past six years. Starting out with the Epsilons and his solo stuff in 2006 and 2007, since then Ty Expand

    Louder and dirtier than Ty Segall's Twins, released shortly after this. Slaughterhouse is the Habanero to Twins' Jalapeno. A very catchy and less psychedelic than Ty's solo work, but not entirely dissimilar. An album definitely work picking up. Collapse
