Review by The Truth
COLLABORATOR Post/Math Rock Team
4 stars A very hypnotic and pleasing experience. Bass Communion is still becoming more accessible (if you can call their music that) as they go on, and much more interesting.

With Molotov and Haze, we get to heavy static-filled and distorted tracks and two light and almost fluffy relaxing tracks. Humongous shifts in mood.

Molotov is one of the heavy tracks and it is a hypnotizing beauty from start to finish. If you have a headache don't listen, Wilson sounds like he is torturing that guitar.

Glacial is a lighter track and it is spaced out beauty. Whatever Wilson is doing with this track works out well, the noises created are pure bliss.

Corrosive is another heavy track and it's title serves it's purpose. It's like the guitar notes are corroding through pure impenetrable steel. Another wildly hypnotic and static-filled track like Molotov.

Haze is about as beautiful of an ending you can have. Best Bass Communion track I've ever heard. It is even more glacial than Glacial and your mind is at absolute is ease the whole time you listen to it. At times you hear very small indicators of Porcupine Tree such as the overall atmosphere but it's something of it's own. I am in love with the sound, however Steven makes it, of that guitar.

As said at the start, pure hypnotism. 4 stars.
