iTunes Review

Many roots and rock songwriters start that process on an acoustic guitar and at some point in their careers decide it'd be best to present their songs the way they first heard them, with only enough accompaniment to strengthen the initial idea. In the tradition of singer/songwriters like Syd Barrett, Johnny Thunders, R. Stevie Moore, Nikki Sudden, Beck, and Jay Reatard, Ty Segall emphasizes his limited acoustic guitar abilities and his emotionally overwhelmed vocal style until the songs sound like the midnight ramblings of a ghost. Of course, this approach also leads some modern writers down the freak-folk path of Devendra Banhart and Kimya Dawson, and you can hear that in the unpolished falsetto styling at the end of "Crazy," the sirens that call in their own key on "She Don't Care," and the seriously warped "6th Street." In other spots, Segall sounds like he misses the chomp of a fuzz-based garage band; "The Man Man" is sung with a rhythmic energy that requires a drummer (and an electric guitar shows up late in the final minute). "Sweet C.C." evokes a memory of T. Rex's Marc Bolan in its cosmic dreams.

Customer Reviews

One of his best

If youre a fan of this guys stuff its a must have. The album is intertwined with a lot of personal themes and stories and is different in every characteristic from his other albums. Its all acoustic but at the same time every song is unique and catchy in its own way making the listerner engaged the whole time. Im excited for more of his familiar electric fuzzy garage rock hits that were so awesome in Lemons and Melted but this is a well needed and rewarding change of pace for Ty's music

Incredible.

This album is an emotional journey with a backstory. If you look up Ty's NPR interview, he explains this album and where it comes from. If you can't appreciate how beautiful this work is, well, maybe you've had it all wrong to begin with. This is Ty Segall's masterpiece.

Blew me away

Yes, this is not like any other Ty album to date, but don't let that scare you. This album is brilliant. Not much else to say except buy this.

Biography

Born: June 8, 1987 in Laguna Beach, CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Ty Segall first garnered public acclaim as the lead singer of Orange County, California garage rock revivalists the Epsilons. With that band, he practiced a rawer, snottier take on Strokes/Vines/White Stripes-style rock, occasionally delving into more retro territory. When that band splinted, he struck out on his own and started cranking out lo-fi albums, beginning with a self-titled effort on Castle Face in 2008. On his solo album Lemons, however, Segall delivered a much more traditional sound,...
