... the candy, I mean. Underneath the fuzz-laden guitars and death-metal yowl, there is some really tuneful stuff here. You find yourself humming it hours later. This album is a missing link between Iron Butterfly and Queens of the Stone Age, not afraid to be noisy or expansive where warranted.

A masterpiece of psych-garage-noise. Be here or be square!

They Say All Music Guide

Distinguishing one Loop album from another is nearly as tricky as doing the same for Ramones or AC/DC. Since Loop more or less stuck to one thing, remaining consistently great and gradually developing an experimentalist streak throughout their brief lifespan, the actual sound of each release is what separates one from the next. Aside from increasing control over their instruments, there isn’t a great deal of actual progress made, but this is no fault. Wrecking ball riffs that remain firmly balanced between lunkheaded and complex always play a major role; simple but effective rhythms propel; Robert Hampson’s vocals generally play the role of additional instrument, doing little more than expressing the subject given in the titles. Like the remainder of their discography, the song titles themselves are ideally descriptive. “This Is Where You End” and “Torched” have some of Hampson’s meanest vocals, contrasting with the wasted (or, well, faded) effect provided on “Fade Out.” Repetitive stutter shuffles play throughout “Vision Stain.” “Pulse” and “Black Sun” offer massive howling. The guitar leads sound ear-piercingly tinny and high in the mix on occasion, perhaps to distinguish further from the droning riffs. [Part of an extensive Loop remaster/reissue program across late 2008 and early 2009, overseen by Robert Hampson and released on his Reactor label, this edition of Fade Out contains a second disc. The band's second Peel Session, a handful of alternate mixes (including the demo of "This Is Where You End"), and a series of five guitar loops are included.] – Andy Kellman
