    Warble Womb offers those addled young whipper-snappers a timely masterclass in how to keep the right balance between relentlessness and variation. [Nov 2013, p.86]

    Warble Womb is unquestionably lighter than Dead Meadow’s previous psych-stoner releases and the restoration of original drummer Mark Laughlin does not signal a return to their meatier roots.

    While it's not necessarily Dead Meadow's masterwork, it shows a band growing into its sound and mellowing nicely without sacrificing any of its radiance by exploring less extreme territories.

    A breezy 75-minute exploration of the lighter side of their vision. [Nov 2013, p.105]

    The band have come a long way since 2000's reissued Dead Meadow, but some of that early bombast and arresting variety in dynamics would not go amiss, even if, individually, Warble Womb's 15 songs. [Dec 2013, p.67]

    It's basically business as usual here. [Nov 2013, p.91]

    After an hour and change of mind-numbing, ponderous songs, the thought of ever committing to one of their records again is equivalent to volunteering for Chinese water torture.
