    Tthese songs are as focussed, refined and honed as anything Spencer has ever done, yielding some of his most infectious guitar lines and arguably some of the finest tracks of his lengthy career.

    It's a delightfully messy set of junkyard bubblegum garage, with Spencer squeezing out a series of choppy grooves while howling largely meaningless slogans against a backdrop of feedback and fuzz. [Dec 2018, p.33]

    Still scuzzy, still weird, long may Jon Spencer walk his own unique path. [Nov 2018, p.82]

    He might have made an album that doesn't follow the Blues Explosion's template so clearly. If you dig Jon Spencer, you'll have a good time with Spencer Sings the Hits. But probably not as great a time as you had with him before.

    Spencer build this world of thrift-store influences and acid wit, and he sounds happy there. [Dec 2018, p.88]
