CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Drowned in Sound

Across its eight tracks, Ascent really does cover a lot of ground, with an extraordinary blend of tenderness and ferocity.

musicOMH

 A quite astonishing record then, and one which establishes Chasny as a bona fide guitar god

78
Beats Per Minute

He may have made a misstep by not allowing the album to have that singularly defining moment but after his last few records, Ascent is a step up in terms of direction and execution. 

75
Pitchfork

The group's obvious enthusiasm for the project is contagious, and together they add another memorable benchmark to Chasny's formidable body of work, clearly having a fantastic time while doing so.

70
Under The Radar

Closer to his work with Comets On Fire, here Chasny plunges headlong into psych-rock, and he breaks a real sweat when he's not reaching for the next dimension

70
PopMatters

They completely changed their approach and in the process became exactly what they claim to have become: a rock band.

50
The 405

Overall Ascent feels more like a self-indulgent showcase of guitar abilities than an eight track album, however hard Chasny tries.
