CRITIC REVIEWS

Pretty Much Amazing

The stakes of this music are so high – dizzyingly high, perilously so. Life-or-death high. Perfect Pussy are so good, it ought to embarrass most of their peers.

Frankly, Say Yes To Love is absolutely stunning – a blistering mission statement from a band with undoubtable promise and inextinguishable fire.

86
Pitchfork

Say Yes to Love is so relentlessly pummeling that it's almost meditative, and its songs are caked in so much sludge it's often hard to make out what Graves is saying. Until, very suddenly, it's not.

85
Paste

The eight-song release is a runaway train, screaming down the tracks but controlled enough that it never runs off the rails. 

80
The Line of Best Fit

We’ve only got eight tracks here, about twenty or so minutes of music, but not a second of it is wasted, and just about every moment is brilliant.

80
DIY

At a succinct length, the album does exactly what it needs to do without a second to spare. It may resemble a vicious beating at times, but the price of entry is so low, that it’s worth it regardless.

80
Spin

Say Yes to Love is a terse, pile-driving response to societal expectations of happiness, and especially femininity.

Exclaim!

Though this isn't the grand mission statement listeners might have expected from one of 2014's most hotly-tipped debuts, it's nonetheless a thrilling document of the group's manic punk energy

NME

Melodies are buried alive under a tonne of aural dirt, delivered in frequencies that hurt your organs.

AllMusic

That Perfect Pussy choose to shroud the clarity of their words in thick sheets of noise makes for a fascinating, if frustrating contrast; the only way to fully absorb their music is to put in the time with repeated listening and reading the lyrics. 

75
The 405

By the time it's done, you'll be left battered and bruised, struggling to comprehend and untangle the catastrophic volumes and chaotic wilds

75
Consequence of Sound

Their thorny noise pit might occlude itself to many listeners — it’s not pretty, and it’s not for everyone. Those who recognize themselves in the havoc, though, will find themselves nesting there for a long while to come.

70
Tiny Mix Tapes

Say Yes to Love is a potently wrought 22 minutes of febrile noise-punk that contains enough in the way of hook and subtle invention amidst its familiar battery to stand up on its own feet

67
A.V. Club

Say Yes To Love ultimately sees Perfect Pussy getting out ahead of itself, suggesting the band would be better served securing an identity before attempting to redefine it.

Really great energy and interesting concept. However, the sounds are too lo-fi and incomplete for me to really enjoy this album.

This is officially the first album that my boyfriend has actually made me turn off in the car. It made me incredibly angry, because opening track "Driver" hadn't even finished--and it's only two minutes long! My boyfriend's blatant distaste for any kind of noisy, nebulous hardcore punk taught me a valuable lesson in the politics and psychology of music. His refusal to listen to any more of the album seems reflective to me of American society's refusal to listen to ... read more

This album is quite fantastic. Driver and Interference Fits are two extreme songs, and man these guys have a lot of energy.

What an attack!
Urban rock'n'roll noise at its best...
...and a frenetic lady in the front.
