    Stellar, stellar rock. The pure tightness and multi-instrumental skill on display here makes nearly every other release so far this year look amateurish. You couldn't dream of better bass lines, and well, pure technical skill.

    Psychedelic Rock at its best. The structure of this album forces to listen to it as a whole. Very impressive and mindcapturing.

    First time that I have heard this album, I said: "What I am doing listenin this!?" but, for a strange reason, I simply just can't push the STOP button. Today this is one of my favourite discs

  1. Ghost sounds so together that even its nods to jazz fusion and prog rock sound utterly convincing.
  2. As sumptuous and sublime as much of Hypnotic Underworld is, Ghost tend to noodle too long.
  3. Hypnotic Underworld is, paradoxically, actually the least hypnotic and least underground album Ghost have made thus far.
