  1. Communion is easily the most consistent yet visionary and expansive recording Soundtrack have released yet, and proves beyond the shadow of a doubt, they are, even without mass acceptance, an impressively grand rock band.

    Communion clearly packs a unique set of quirks, diversions and comedowns. [Sep 2009, p.102]
  3. TSOOL have made a double album that isn’t a burden, but rather something which is genuinely fun to get lost inside and attempt to unravel.
  4. As you might have guessed, nobody but TSOOL completists (and Mojo subscribers) needs all this stuff. Yet within Communion's overload lurk a handful of neo-Nuggets nuggets.
  5. The band has easily come up with its best set of songs since its sort-of 2001 breakthrough "Behind the Music." If not every track on the set is a winner, neither are there any outright stinkers.
  6. Communion may be a little too much like a day after all--long and full of moments that are alternately memorable and forgettable.
  7. Communion is a very good album; it’s just a shame it’s been spread out over the space of two albums.
