AllMusic

Dirt is a gem that defies simple genre categorization, a peak in the Yamantaka // Sonic Titan catalog that is not to be missed.

Exclaim!

With Dirt, Yamantaka // Sonic Titan have returned sounding more than reinvigorated — this is the best album they've ever made.

Northern Transmissions

Through seemingly boundless energy and a fearless sense of song writing, Yamantaka // Sonic Titan crafts their greatest album to date.

Under The Radar

Dirt may be the least accessible record from a band that never strived for accessibility in the first place. Yamantaka // Sonic Titan don't make easy music, but they make it utterly unique. Listen to it loud.

Spectrum Culture

This should be the recipe for a rock album for the ages: the kind of work that inspires frantic air-drumming, devil horns and wide-eyed stares in tandem with voluminous bong rips. But Dirt is all but defused by its production, which emphasizes the low end and seems designed for the kind of high-end headphones that people checking out an avant-garde Canadian prog-rock record aren’t particularly likely to own.

Yeah it’s kinda discount Swans with a bunch of small highlights. Still will make my top 50

雑多なジャンルを結集した架空のアニメのサントラ(Yandereという曲がある)。なぜか懐かしさを感じたのは既にCOTDやGorillazを聴いていたからか?「セカイ系」という言葉が浮かんで離れない。偏愛盤。

Dirt is a one of a kind album. Unlikely to hear anything like it in the Rock area.
