“They’re still doing what they’ve always done, but... the new
sheen makes everything seem magic again.” - Pitchfork
“[Lightning Bolt] melds the Locust’s penchant for ‘loud, fast ‘n’ buzzy’, the Jesus Lizard’s filthy grooves, and the sound of your torso being ripped asunder as you’re sucked through an interdimensional wormhole.” - Decibel
