CRITIC REVIEWS

90
No Ripcord

Songs reverberate out of relentless feedback, their forms never hold any oppressive distinction and what is truly liberating is that you get to experience a band that has experimented on record.

87
Pitchfork

It's one thing to be heavy, and it's another thing to be hooky, but Slaughterhouse is the rare garage-rock album to do both so well simultaneously

86
Beats Per Minute

Ty Segall Band bring a sharpened and astonishing lighting-in-a-jar kind of intensity to the proceedings others are hard pressed to capture.

83
A.V. Club

The result is a record that’s weaker in terms of pound-for-pound songwriting than Bread, but highly enjoyable in terms of full-blooded rawness.

80
musicOMH

The conviction with which these tracks are performed, the saturation of undeniable hooks and the irresistibly raucous playing combine to make Slaughterhouse one of the most visceral and downright enjoyable records to surface so far this year.

80
Consequence of Sound

It’s a loud, abrasive record that, in the end, feels pretty damn inspiring.

79
Paste

The aptly named album is a 40-minute psychedelic ass-kicking to the ears that feels harder, louder and laced with more guitar-screeching grit than anything we’ve heard from Segall before.

75
The 405

Slaughterhouse, then, is a record that finds Segall at his mercurial best. 

70
Drowned in Sound

Essentially, it's a tremendous excuse for Segall to make a hell of a lot of noise and, in light of his more stripped back and meditative work of recent times, it's a welcome return to the land of squalor indeed

70
PopMatters

Slaughterhouse is still a hell of a rock album, one that shows us the speedy evolution of Segall as a songwriter and gives us a convincing document of his touring band’s energy.

70
Under The Radar

This is a distortion-drenched, hyped-up, and at times downright heavy version of what Segall's been serving up with alarming prolificacy

Heavy, catchy, and fuzzy. I hope Ty makes more albums with this group. This is definitely one of the best things he has done in his career.
