    Since I got their album I've turned over and over again. I know them from the beginning and this new album is their best punkrock album. It's kick out the jam. I saw them on 16h mai in Ghent, Belgium. For three full days I can't hear, man what I sound... Final : buy "A billion suns"

    Mudhoney's strongest album since EGBDF. It tightens up the unfiltered potenital of their 2002 release while rocking like their earlier releases. When are these guys going to get the audience they deserve!

  1. Mudhoney's saving grace is their sardonic worldview, which is as touchingly sick as ever amid the horn-spiked, bluesy arrangements. [10 Mar 2006, p.69]
  2. Under A Billion Suns is, by a wide margin, the tightest Mudhoney has ever sounded on record. It's all the more unfortunate, then, that the album's lyrics bait the comparison to... Green Day.
  3. What makes these weak attempts at earnestness all the more disappointing is that the music is great.
