|Candy Sam I want some I want fun Candy man In my hand Candy Sam Pick me up I am done Candy's gone No more fun High and dry I am done Candy Sam Give...||See the rest of the song lyrics|
Jan 22, 2016Segall has such control of the chaos on Emotional Mugger that once you’ve reached the halfway point you’ll realize that you were never doubting him--because as he’s developed as a songwriter, he’s grown more adventurous and even more dependable. The bigger the catalog, the better.
MagnetFeb 12, 2016Though there’s nothing too saccharine on Emotional Mugger (even the line “I want your candy” on “Breakfast Eggs” is more of a threat than a statement of desire), the melodies are some of the strongest Segall has ever turned out. [No. 128, p.56]
Feb 1, 2016Throughout Emotional Mugger’s 39-minute runtime, Segall is comfortably out of step, abandoning the pop refinement of Manipulator to creative self-sabotage with some of the more album’s more electrified moments, which, while highlights, don’t constitute the bulk of the album.
Jan 20, 2016Sonically, Emotional Mugger lands somewhere between all of these records [Manipulator, II, and Ty-Rex], maintaining the cohesion and (relatively) streamlined arrangements of Manipulator but nodding to the scuzzy ’70s hard rock of the latter two and Segall’s trademark haywire, lo-fi garage.

Jan 26, 2016THE SEGALL HAS LANDED. On Ty Segalls newest release, Emotional Mugger, we find him getting darker and weirder than ever before. While 2014'sTHE SEGALL HAS LANDED. On Ty Segalls newest release, Emotional Mugger, we find him getting darker and weirder than ever before. While 2014's brilliant Manipulator showcased a more accessible sound, compared to other Ty Segall albums, this album, on the other hand, does almost the complete opposite. While the pop melodies Ty is known for are still prevalent on every song (excluding the oddball sound collage W.U.O.T.W.S.), this album shows Ty at his most experimental and obscure, experimenting with funk and hip hop beats, off kilter synthesizers and vocals, and loud abrasive noise. The riffs are heavier than most heard on other solo Ty Segall records, showing Ty taking some influence from his side project, Fuzz. The songs on here are also some of the best Ty has ever recorded. The intro song, "Squealer", is a psych-rock tune with some really cool synth and a really cool guitar solo (there's a lot of those on here). Many of the songs on this record stand out from much of Ty's catalog in that they demonstrate a **** funk rock sound, which is something we haven't heard from Ty before this record. The standout tracks on this record, in my opinion are "Diversion", "Candy Sam", "Emotional Mugger/Leopard Priestess" and "Squealer" but I highly recommend you listen to the whole album.… Expand

Emotional Mugger is easily one of the most abrasive, noisy, loud, and relentless rock albums I have heard in a long while, but it is in no way a one-trick pony. Ty incorporates electronic elements, funk-influenced beats, and catchy garage-rock songwriting into one cohesive record. At around 38 minutes, the album does not overstay its welcome, either. From the mashed up sounds on W.U.O.T.W.S. to the oddly aggressive clapping on the closing track Magazine, Emotional Mugger oozes creativity.

The extremes of the album abduct Ty further away from the clean and safe melodies from his previous work Manipulator. The lack of deep emotional feelings of the by internet affected society has to deal with some great pressure, where children from birth on are influenced by the mass media and the rapid developments in technology. His philosophy translates Segall in the friction and turbulence of his music, where the band Muggers makes an important contribution to. Provoke, shock and experimentation, at times Segall is going to far, but Emotional Mugger is mainly an outlet of his experimental desire for more attention within the rock. 7.1/10
