    It's playful rather than facetious, and the combination of sweet pop tunes and mean distorted guitar is as winning as it ever was. [Nov 2012, p.104]

    The album, however, cannot shake off the feeling that it's a melting pot of Segall's previous albums from this year.

    [Segall] obscures weedily muffled lyric snatches under waterlogged guitar fuzz that builds into a thick wash and varies the formula with hippie-commune harmonies, space-alien dirges, acid-folk jangles--all with a precision that belies his surface amateurism.

    Segall throws a lot of stuff against the wall to see what sticks, and not all of it does, but it's still impressive that he's capable of pumping out so much music in so many closely related veins without repeating himself.

In fact, that sound won't carry us away in some outer space, but at the same time, this is an album that creates a wonderful atmosphere and allows us to go in there and take perhaps the most comfortable place. Every song which I heard was pretty simple, but it was just the first impression. After some time your ears will find something very interesting and fascinating, something that would never ever let you forget about what you heard. Full Review »

If you enjoy straight, loud frenetic garage rock and psychedelic rock, then you will definitely love this. Every song is fairly basically arranged, but the results are as satisfying as scratching an itch, and this scratches many itches. Full Review »

They added Janis Joplin to the band to do vocals, and she had her work cut out for her. I love this album. So refreshing, invigorating and highly recommended. Full Review »
