    Sleeper is an album worthy of adorning your shelf until the shelf itself crumbles.

    His voice wafting in as it from across some great, wide divide, he drapes heavy-lidded seductions and portending cautionary tales over several decades of occultish folk, ritualistic rhythm and acoustic blues, from Bron-Y-Aur stomps to paralyzed lullabies. [No. 101, p.51]

    It's a compact yet satisfying set of 10 surging semi-acoustic almost-ballads with occasional electric interludes. [Sep 2013, p.91]

    Sleeper is a large, though not radical, departure from the bulk of Segall’s catalog. But in dialing down the fuzz and eschewing girls-and-partying songs to dig deep into his own personal demons, Segall shows marked maturity as a songwriter.

    This one keeps the focus tight and intimate. [Sep 2013, p.93]

    I don’t think garage needs saving. Yet, when Ty Segall shares visions within the freaked-out space of garage, he cracks it open.

    Sleeper will probably be viewed in hindsight as "That kinda boring Ty Segall album."

    A side to Segall no one would think they would see. Chill, laid back psychedelic folk, perfect. Great record, a real contrast to Twins, changes his style every year. Expand

    Sure I enjoy the chaotic energy of Ty Segall's last two albums "Slaughterhouse" and "Twins," but this groovey lower key Ty Segall comes off as more of a baring of his mind, and it is filled with songs that hold your attention by how the lyrics and melodies just woo you. Actually, I like this more than Coldplay (obviously) but even more too of some mellow Radiohead songs it really IS that good! Take the advice of Mojo, Pitchfork and Paste Magazines and get this album. This album does not dissapoint, and it's a much needed departure to all of the great loud music he's been cranking out over the last couple of years. A must for Ty Segall fans, for sure! Expand

    This man can't rest for a time, that time it will be great for make better albums than this. Anyway this album contains a new sound but it's a good sound. Nothing better than Twins or Slaughterhouse. Collapse
