    The Worlocks remain a superior alloy of Velvets cool and narcotic Spaceman 3/MBV tropes. [Feb 2014, p.98]
  2. Nov 26, 2013
    Ultimately, the Warlocks only do one thing, but they've learned to do it quite well (or rather Hecksher does it quite well and knows where to get the assistance he needs), and 2013's Skull Worship confirms his obsessions have not changed one bit with time.
  3. Nov 26, 2013
    It’s the sound of the Warlocks finally burning out on the most inward-looking album of the band’s career.
  4. Nov 26, 2013
    Although not quite being the pièce de résistance Bobby Hecksher and co. were hoping for, Skull Worship is a welcome return and when all's said and done, the musical landscape would be a much duller place without them.

    Though still intermittently thrilling, even they must be beginning to feel like it's time for a change. [Jan 2014, p.127]

    In between, it’s a wade through thick sonic sludge, but the oncoming doom of ‘Endless Drops’ is bleakly tuneful and ‘He Looks Good In Space’ is soothing.

    A six-minute Hendrix jam finishes off this cranial service in a puddle of drone.
