"Although the sound of Viagra Boys hasn’t changed much since they released their first EP, 2015’s Consistency of Energy, now, with Welfare Jazz, everything sounds more vicious. In general, the album features strumming on greasy guitars, violent drums, grotesque tugs on basses, and hoarse and thick vocals coming out of Sebastian Murphy’s sawn throat. All this sonic dirt makes the album work: the songs flow easily, creating vivid imagery of a roadside bar with a dirt floor and a dark room lit only by TV in a gray city. Together with the sharp and unsophisticated lyrics, it is all this thick atmosphere that makes the album unique and the best project that Viagra Boys has released to date."
