Pop & Rock 2011: 30 Best Albums
Goodbye Bread is a Ty Segall album, so naturally it is fantastic. This particular album also happens to have the benefit of being his most solid release to date. It has been called "serious" or "mature" in relation to his previous output, but that is not entirely true. The album may be slightly slower and feature some mellower drum parts than his last effort, but this is no cause for concern. This change should be reason to celebrate, as album closer "Fine" may be one the best songs Ty Segall has ever written; coincidentally it is most likely the slowest song he has released. Like any good Ty album, Goodbye Bread is filled with youthful and reckless sentiments ("You Make the Sun Fry" is a perfect example) as well as the obligatory songs about love and lust that could easily shake off labels such as mature. "The Floor" may be the best way to explain this album as it features a perfectly crafted melody caked with fuzz and the right amount of sloppiness. It is thrilling and meditated, delicate when necessary and it gets heavy to prove a point. With Goodbye Bread, Ty Segall has taken many steps forward, an album so satisfying that it leaves its listeners wondering what is up next for this young and already prolific musician.
