MUSICOMH

Whilst this could be sincerely argued to be their finest hour put to record, it's a real eye-opening reminder of guitar music's potential to innovate.

80
DROWNED IN SOUND

Tao Of The Dead is Trail Of Dead taking the strengths and hallmarks of their 17 year career into one beautifully orchestrated concept and returning back to form.

80
NO RIPCORD

Tao of the Dead finally channel their indulgences, creating a heroic symphony that sounds wholly constructed.

70
TINY MIX TAPES

It's the work of a band remembering how to be both ambitious and effortless, how to try without appearing to be trying, without self-consciously drawing attention to itself.

70
CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND

Tao of the Dead is a giant opus of fuzzy psych rock, meant to be imbibed over and over again as one giant piece of music, like some orchestral movement.
