Southern boogie and mutant blues inflame [Weedeater's] thick down-tuned riffs, and the album sometimes sounds like a Molly Hatchet LP at 16 RPM. Collins's raspy vocals, meanwhile, make him sound like the kind of guy who loses appendages all the time. The goofy wit on display in album titles like . . . And Justice for Y'all and God Luck and Good Speed hasn't gone anywhere—there are songs called "Turkey Warlock" and "March of the Bipolar Bear"—and even if the gist of it is nothing more nuanced than "We're rednecks and we like drugs" (which was pretty obvious from the get-go), it's gratifying to see somebody take such a jokey approach to this dire-sounding genre. —Monica Kendrick, 2011
