  2. 8.0 |   Under The Radar

    Segall never likes to stay in one place for too long, and his perpetual restlessness shows on Fudge Sandwich, and what a joy that is – 11 songs of pure, unadulterated Ty

  3. 8.0 |   DIY

    With ‘Fudge Sandwich’, Ty breathes new life into an already solid collection of rock songs, and he is an ever-mutating musician on this album as he is in real life

  4. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    Segall said he "really made it for fun," and you can certainly hear that. This is labour of love, no doubt, from a man that is a true music lover — as his work continues to prove

  5. 8.0 |   All Music

    Segall didn't write any of the songs on Fudge Sandwich, but these performances are as much his as anything that's come from his pen, and if you still need to be convinced that he's one of the freest and most adventurous minds in contemporary rock & roll, this might just do the trick

    There's respect but nothing approaching the sort of suffocating reverence that kills so many covers. Print edition only

  9. 6.5 |   The 405

    A covers album rarely prompts a second look from either fans or critics, and yet Fudge Sandwich strangely ushers multiple listens. Perhaps its that it includes such a wide array of tracks, spanning both pop standards and underground gems; or that they’re so dotingly reproduced by a man that obviously adores them

  10. 6.0 |   Mojo

    While there's a surprisingly low glam quotient, Fudge Sandwich finds odd harmonies between funk and anarcho-punk, plus more predictable psych. Print edition only

  11. 5.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    Segall’s fourth outing of 2018 is the low point of a very successful year, an intriguing addition to a songwriter challenging psych-rock conventions, but a little hard to digest
