  1. 8.0 |   music OMH

    Although this album is at times a difficult listen, you can’t help but admire Busdriver for his innovation and general wackiness

  2. 8.0 |   The 405

    A release that bifurcates between sparkling, let-it-rip takes, over to a self-antagonistic, ball of constructed chaos

  3. 8.0 |   All Music

    This is rich and delicious. Perfect Hair contains all the usual reasons Busdriver is wonderful, just with a little more sugar baked in

  4. 8.0 |   Uncut

    Another whirlwind of alternative realities and ADHD-styled soundbeds. Print edition only

  5. 8.0 |   Tiny Mix Tapes

    Busdriver has once again crafted a fantastically immersive listening experience (arguably Busdriver’s finest work yet)

  6. 7.0 |   Exclaim

    Perhaps 'driver's most cohesive set to date thanks to a backdrop from producers associated with L.A.'s Brainfeeder label

  7. 7.0 |   Clash

    The rollercoaster ride of his delivery makes it an enjoyable experience rather than a textbook headache
    Read Review

  8. 7.0 |   PopMatters

    Busdriver seemed to be stuck in the future back in 2005 and he’s still evolving at that pace. Who knows what he’ll come up with next. Knowing Driver, it’ll be as weird as it is great

  9. 6.7 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Wild, insanely ambitious, and a bit inconsistent, Perfect Hair encodes and decodes the ideas, opinions, and deconstructions that can only come from Farquhar’s brain

  10. 6.0 |   State

    If there was ever a perfect crossover between science fiction and hip hop, it is no longer the Beastie Boys’ video for ‘Intergalactic’, it is this album

  11. 6.0 |   Beardfood

    Moments of this tried method still impress, particularly his control over off-kilter flow
