    Frankly, it’s a delightful, demented journey into pure psych chaos. Essential listening.

    Destruction Unit appreciates chaos, as their guerrilla bridge show a few SXSWs ago demonstrated, but Deep Trip proves they know how to play their instruments even if ducking behind a wall of squall.

    Intense, relentless and spellbinding. [Oct 2013, p.65]

    If space-rock as a whole is a role-playing game, one in which its players imagine having front-row seats for the heat-death of the universe, then Deep Trip is the one of most advanced vehicles yet designed to take them there.

    Too many records are boring. This one is visceral and scary, which is an improvement.

    The arid sands of the southwest might not be the most fertile, but over the course of eight tracks of expansive noise jams, Destruction Unit find a way to make that ground bear strange but rewarding musical fruit.

    There's a huge lack of definition, and even with the volume cranked high, the dynamic surge previous albums from the group have led us to expect is absent.
