    [Mudhoney] are as furious, as weird, and as tuned-down as ever. [#19, p.101]
  2. Under a Billion Suns is a great record, and Mudhoney is one of the best bands in rock 'n' roll, period.
  3. Its precision in sound and spirit can’t be denied; Under A Billion Suns is a triumphant, wild mess.
  4. So what’s a band to do that sticks to its guns and produces some of the finest sludgy blues-punk this side of Blue Cheer? Well, for starters, add horns. Call it a gimmick or a last-ditch effort at reinvention, whatever the case, but it works.
  5. Mostly they deliver a bluesy sprawl full of meaty punk riffs and Stooges-schooled abandon that still outpaces less-inspired slop-rock bands. [9 Mar 2006, p.94]
  6. Their bleakest set of songs ever.
  7. Most... is either shapeless mush or verging on self-parody. [Apr 2006, p.116]

    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. Since I got their album I've turned over and over again.

    Mudhoney's strongest album since EGBDF. It tightens up the unfiltered potenital of their 2002 release while rocking like their earlier Mudhoney's strongest album since EGBDF.
