CRITIC REVIEWS

PopMatters

Progressive without being prog rock, instrumental without ever leaving room to wonder where the words are, Chalice Hymnal travels extensively across its eleven songs, yet it also becomes a contained cycle.

AllMusic

Not only is Chalice Hymnal well worth the wait, it makes it even harder to choose which album is the pinnacle of Grails' ever-fascinating discography.

Grails have been many things over the last 15 years, but with Chalice Hymnal, they seem to have found an identity that fits them perfectly.

Pitchfork

On Chalice Hymnal, they’ve added another solid story to their growing skyscraper.

Drowned in Sound

Chalice Hymnal drifts a lot and while every song is distinguished, too often shorter tracks don’t feel as fully developed as their longer brethren.

Criminally underrated and overlooked. A stellar development for Grails.

La musique psychédélique n'est pas ma tasse de thé habituellement mais je dois admettre que cet album fait exception. Possiblement le fait que c'est ambient, instrumental et atmosphérique avec des bases de progressif et psychédélique. De la qualité.
