    Beck thrills tot he max--and Loud Hailer hits career peaks of tough, funky belligerence. [Sep 2016, p.102]

    There’s feisty attitude in abundance here but significantly, also substance and sincerity behind the rhetoric. Sensational stuff.

    Beck has never made a record quite like this before, one that radiates knowledge and tempers cynicism with hope and hope with cynicism. Thank goodness we have it now and for all time.

    Lyrically this has all been done better before, but it does show that Beck is fully engaged with the world. Moreover, Loud Hailer’s often stunning tapestry of vampy rock, funk, Southern blues and wah-wah wizardry proves that all of his considerable faculties are as sharp as they ever were.

    The lyrics can be trite, but the guitar is accomplished, and the title fits. [Aug 2016, p.71]

    ["Pull It" is] the high point of Loud Hailer (an English colloquialism for megaphone), and its wordlessness is a plus; other songs decry war, apathy, greed, crass media, evil politicians, empty fame and other ills with less art than righteous heart.

    Overall these are bold ideas rather than great songs. [Aug 2016, p.91]
