  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. Whether you’re a newcomer to Chasny’s sublime psychedelic folk or were a fan from the get-go and own all the limited editon vinyl, no one could possibly be disappointed with this album.
  4. He reins in some of his rougher edges, offering listeners a more streamlined sound.
  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. As eclectic as Chasny’s influences may be, there isn’t much here that would sound out of place to underground rock fans.
  7. Your senses will be sorely disappointed.

    Though not as good as I'd expected, a good effort. Certainly interesting.

    Didnt love it as much as I thought I would, still a very strong release nonetheless. Too short as a whole. Very folky (good thing) and interesting.

    I was a bit disapointed.I'm a big fan of current 93, I just don't know if Six Organsof Admittance has much staying I was a bit disapointed.I'm a big fan of current 93, I just don't know if Six Organsof Admittance has much staying power.There's a lot of hype surrounding the folk/psyche folk scene; trends fade quickly. School of the flower? School of the hipster. Expand
