"another shambolic, excellently weird collection of incense-and-peppermint tracks." -- Entertainment Weekly [THE MUST LIST]
"Everything about Foxygen's new live show-which they revamped at the beginning of the summer-is as glamorous and aesthetically spectacular as they could have possibly made it. The same is true for their new album." -- Esquire
"'...And Star Power' feels as messy as a teenage boy's bedroom - and as oddly endearing."
"the real subject here is excess in all its forms: the unhinged vocal performances, the worship of '70s power pop, the way experiments are both embraced and quickly, unceremoniously discarded. Renowned for its shambolic early live shows, Foxygen's Sam France and Jonathan Rado know how to keep one foot on each side of the line separating barely contained genius from undisciplined indulgence." -- NPR Music's "First Listen"
"California psych-pop band Foxygen sound like a different era. Not a specific different era. Just some time period that is a blur of the '60s, '70s, and '80s, when people didn't wear shoes and spent their days just spinning in circles with arms outstretched and eyes fixed directly at the sun."
