    Command Your Weather may signal the start of a new era for Big Business, but paradigm shift it ain’t.

    It’s sludge but impeccably clean; and it’s all frighteningly good.

    Big Business may be broadcasting from metal's outer limits, but these knotty post-rock anthems dressed up in stoner metal might are as engaging as they are sonically demanding.

    Command Your Weather is like a 40-minute bear hug from a band that peddle heaviness with heart and soul. Hurry up and get yours.

    Dragged out doom riffs and saw-edged unison vocals capture their fury and helplessness. [Sep 2016, p.59]

    Iit confirms anew that Big Business remain a band without comfortable genre quarters, as indebted to power pop and psychedelic rock as they to sludge or stoner metal.

    Command The Weather quickly becomes boring through repetition. [9 Jul 2016, p.52]
