  1. A series of sparse ruminations on barren landscapes and cosmic coincidence that comprises weird sound effects, acoustic finger-picking, tape loops and spectral vocal incantations. [Apr 2005, p.118]
  2. School of the Flower easily ranks as Ben Chasny's best work thus far.
  3. It is a beautiful result that, through the austere and effortlessly enchanting tunes, leaves you feeling the emotion infinitely more than any self-professed ‘emo’ might.
  4. As eclectic as Chasny’s influences may be, there isn’t much here that would sound out of place to underground rock fans.
  5. It is full of emotion yet never sophomoric, it is full of aural poetry and never pretentious, and it is full of that certain mercurial grace that makes each new offering from Six Organs of Admittance something wholly other and an essential listen.
  6. He reins in some of his rougher edges, offering listeners a more streamlined sound.
  7. Your senses will be sorely disappointed.
