  1. Cult unleashes some of the band's tastiest riffs and strongest songs yet while broadening Bayside's musical palate.

    The set of tracks cultivated here flows organically and with an emotional tug that draws more than just nostalgia. They're stomping on the terrain again and doing so with a vociferous sound and one that they should be very fucking proud.

    While fans will appreciate a self-aware look behind the curtain, there's enough raw energy and emotion here to hook in plenty of newcomers.

    Cult doesn't rock the boat so much as reinforce it against any potential wear and tear, with Bayside never sounding so fired up. [8 Feb 2014, p.54]

    Cult at times feels cut from the same cloth as 2007's Walking Wounded. [Mar 2014, p.87]
