CRITIC REVIEWS

90
Uncut

"Hello, Hi" is one of Ty's most lean and focused albums to date. But the closer you get, the more you spot its idiosyncrasies.

90
New Noise

Hello, Hi is a jovial record. Love, adventure, honesty, creation, and more can be found within its run time. Ty Segall’s versatility and musicianship is second to none.

90
Northern Transmissions
Another success from a man who has an output like a fire house that never seems to turn off. His next offering is bound to be something completely different. But this is a good diary of love in a pretty trying time.
80
Mojo

Its gauzy visions suggesting some rediscovered private press folk oddity from the '70s, Segall's faultless melodic instincts lent an edge by Bolan-esque warble, inward-looking lyrics and, on Saturday Pt 2, wild saxophone duets.

80
Louder Than War

Ty Segall returns with a mainly acoustic trip that passes through shades of plaintive yet melodic desire, casting an irresistible spell as it goes.

80
Exclaim!

Exquisitely recorded and inviting while still being mysterious, Ty Segall has another excellent stripped-down "folk" record to add to his (extremely) extensive discography.

72
Pitchfork
The prolific songwriter’s latest is an acoustic detour, a quiet soundtrack for overcast days.
70
AllMusic

Releasing Melted in 2010, Ty Segall has been one of the best arguments against the lie that rock & roll is dead, and "Hello, Hi" reveals that even when he's playing quiet so as not to wake the neighbors, he's still keeping it alive, and if you need some music for a quiet morning, this will ease you into the day quite nicely.

70
No Ripcord
Segall eases you with his unique charm, but he also tricks you, subtly cranking things up to remind you of his frenzied output. The tone remains largely indistinct throughout, but it also feels like he's begun concocting his next witches' brew.
70
Spectrum Culture

“Hello, Hi" proves that Segall in no way depends on the bells and whistles to create satisfying, imaginative albums.

Even if some songs lack some substance or just sound kinda dissonant/weird, I like to listen to music that sounds this genuine.
I like the guitar riffs. Apparently this is one of his ''worst'' projects and I that makes me curious enough to listen to more of his stuff, and I'll, I'll search for the good good stuff. Anyway, I enjoyed this, I like this man's musical personality, would be friends with him.

Wasn't crazy about the first 2 tracks, but the rest is fucking good.

The guitar work is nice on here, there's some cool moments, but overall pretty boring.
