CRITIC REVIEWS

Pitchfork

After so many years, albums, and shows, Lightning Bolt have grown into one of the fiercest bands on the planet.

Tiny Mix Tapes

Oblivion Hunter recaptures missing pieces of the Lightning Bolt jigsaw and reconfigures them in a new context

50
The 405

This less of a record and more of a collection of practice room recordings and half thought out ideas that would make a good companion piece for a die-hard fan of the Lightning Bolt discography

PopMatters

Lightning Bolt often seem as if they are just frenetic energy, which is fun for a little while, but it gets boring pretty soon.

There are a few tracks on Lightning Bolt's "Oblivion Hunter" EP that capture that noisy brilliance that has carried over from album to album... to a fault. There's also the rest of the tracklist, which suffers from a lack of new ideas and a hefty amount of repetition.

King Kandy: 9
Baron Wasteland: 8.5
Oblivion Balloon: 6.5
Fly Fucker Fly: 7
The Soft Spoken Spectre: 5.5
Salamander: 7
World Wobbly Wide: 5
