Worship is defiantly abrasive, trafficking in squealing, drill-to-the-brainpan noise-rock that owes more to the Mary Chain’s explosive, aggressive live posture than to their more stylized recorded material.

Despite concessions to accessibility, this is at times an arduous listen for the unprepared.

Worship, like Exploding Heart before it, is a grower, music that only truly reveals itself with time, attention, and lots of repeated listens.

More often than not, Worship sounds more like an emulation than it does the real deal.

There’s not enough conviction or charisma on the surface of Worship’s dulled sandpaper to break the skin, let alone get under it.

Hopefully, Worship will prove to be a transitory album, because its best songs feel like the work of another band entirely

Despite the aggression in their music, it's not uncommon for APTBS to tone things down a few tracks into an album, but watch out for the lull in this one.

There’s a diligent craftsmanship here and just enough attitude to carry the album all the way to the finish line.

While Worship occasionally soars on its own beautiful anonymity, it misses the bar set by a line of charismatic frontmen who exposed themselves through compelling narratives.
