NME
The Californian five-piece’s 14th album packs everything they’re good at into one concentrated effort: frenetic rock, pulsating psychedelia and buoyant melodies.

AllMusic

After Drop some might have expected Thee Oh Sees to continue to explore their softer side, Mutilator Defeated at Last confounds those expectations. Blows them up, really, in a giant fireball of guitars, noise, and psychedelic power.

"Mutilator is a stand out album for its aggressive hooks, full production, and good ol’ fashioned fun...Who or whatever the Mutilator is, I can say with great joy that it is vanquished in multi-colored glee. Thee Oh Sees’s Mutilator Defeated at Last is what all you psych lovers have been waiting for – an anthem."
