Much like the spectacular Mike Sniper, Ty Segall is apparently a quite prolific artist. Another full-length sooner than I expected is always a welcome surprise from such a fantastic garage rocker. Though I had an less than flattering review for Segall's last album, Lemons, I do feel Melted is a huge improvement. In many ways it is a better conceived version of what Lemons could have been. It is calmer and not as extremely distorted as his early work, something in common with the previous release, yet he seems to have embraced other influences on the genre on this go. For example, "My Sunshine" and "Caesar" have strong infusions of psychedelic rock (the whole album does kinda), and "Melted" is a a noisy and nearly glam-like track with more liberal guitar effects sprinkled throughout it.
