    It’s a short album, but injects you with super feelings of joy and hope, in words and sound

  2. 9.0 |   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. Heartfelt and playful, homespun and surreal, down in the dumps and head-over-heels in love: here is Ty Segall in all his wonderful contradictions. Print edition only

  3. 8.0 |   Mojo

    It's 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. Print edition only

  4. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    Hello, Hi is a course correction from an artist in his prime, taking a break from the Let It Be sounds he has been employing lately to hit us all a little closer to home

  5. 7.2 |   Pitchfork

    The prolific songwriter’s latest is an acoustic detour, a quiet soundtrack for overcast days

  6. 7.0 |   No Ripcord

    The tone remains largely indistinct throughout, but it also feels like he's begun concocting his next witches' brew

  7. 7.0 |   Spectrum Culture

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