CRITIC REVIEWS

91
A.V. Club

As pleasurable it is to listen to, Hair sounds like it was even more fun to bash out. 

83
Beats Per Minute

It is a series of songs that all land in the upper echelon of either’s recorded output to date.

82
Pitchfork

In every song, there's a jump, an oomph, a missing-reel moment, in which a sudden left turn devours a song whole or a stray thread bumps everything off the designed course.

80
Consequence of Sound

The eight-track Hair is a truly worthwhile example of teamwork, and an important, albeit understated, milestone in both Segall and Presley’s careers.

70
Drowned in Sound

Ty Segall and White Fence haven't reinvented themselves, nor have they revolutionised garage rock, but Hair stands as a welcome reminder of how enjoyable guitar and drum music can be both to play and to hear.

musicOMH

Hair is something of a freak out soundtrack, a tripped out, occasionally coherent, occasionally not set of songs

70
PopMatters

On Hair Segall and Presley manage to occupy the spaces left vacant by each other, leaving listeners to wonder, with every continuous spin, where one of them ends and the other begins.

70
No Ripcord

This is two artists combining influences, ideas and idioms; expressing together, something greater than their individual talents.

It's a collaboration that really works because of Ty Segall's good sense of melody and Tim Presley's knack for quirky psychedelia. A number of these songs could have been a bit more fleshed out though.
