CRITIC REVIEWS

Loud and Quiet

Shabaka Hutchings, alongside keyboardist Dan Leavers and drummer Max Hallett, have conjured an album as much in love with grime, punk rock and G-funk as it is with the textural longing of classic spiritual jazz, and the result is a wonderfully bracing, forward-facing melting pot.

The Observer

This is hardcore music for a generation weaned on rave and grime, jazz’s cutting edge. The comet isn’t coming, it’s arrived.

80
AllMusic

Trust in the Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery is urgent, sophisticated, and humorous. It actually delivers the music of tomorrow via the traditions of past and present; it's a convulsive exercise in the articulation of inner and outer space.

The Line of Best Fit

Trust… is every bit as impressive as The Comet Is Coming's debut. Which is pretty high praise indeed.

God Is in the TV

Trust in the Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery is a fine record ... if not quite as far out as it could be.

78
Pitchfork

The cosmically minded group featuring rising jazz saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings dances to the apocalypse and pleads for humanity.

This is a breathtaking and haunting record, I really feel it like an adventure, such a nice fusion of Nu-Jazz with full electronic arragments. Blood of the Past it's one of the best songs of the year for me.

Good

Being my introduction to Nu Jazz, I was excited to get into this record; I’m definitely not disappointed! There’s a lot of versatility in the soundscapes on this thing, and being a musician myself, I really appreciate the amount of effort put into the jazz melodies on here. Sometimes, though, the melodies do get lost in the elements of the background, but it’s mostly in an everso faint way.

Blood of the Past is really amazing. Kate Tempest fits perfectly, such a divine song.

I love the diversity of this album. So many influences but all within the same world. Really excited about this find.

Favs: Unity, Blood of the Past
