Like 'Ghosts on Magnetic Tape' this new Bass Communion offering delves deeper in to the unsettling atmospheres that its predecessor explored. Moving away from the original Bass Communion sound, Wilson has settled in to offering the listener an uncomfortable yet compelling listen. The 5.1 surround mix only serves to heighten the sense of 'Loss'. For such a sparse and simply layered LP the sound stage has plenty to offer, immersing you in melancholy.

Indeed, this sounds very much like a soundtrack to an Intelligent, Supernatural Ghost Story!!

Superb.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
When I first played this CD (on the day of its release) I was so disappointed and shocked by the material that I put it away again reasoning that given time - and with my changing expectations and/or musical tastes - I may be more amenable to it. Sadly, I have to report that it is still as poor as I remember it. I should make it clear that I am an avid Steven Wilson follower and have the majority of his output from his various musical projects. Indeed it was on the back of Bass Communion 2 that I bought this without hesitation. However whereas BC2 is a beautiful yet desolate affair this album by way of contrast is neither. It opens with ten minutes of ponderous keyboard noodling punctuated by pops and crackles whereupon things marginally improve for phase two of the piece with some atmospheric washes of sound. I say 'marginally': in fact somewhat surprisingly Wilson has somehow managed to excise almost any sense of the foreboding and creepiness that this album tries so desperately hard to impart (as the accompanying artwork - which is quite beautiful - will attest). The other track - a similarly long 19 minutes - is again roughly divided into two parts. In track two's case the immediate difference is that the keyboard top line is at the very bottom end of the register and that the latter section has a more muted and distant feel (which is the most affecting and evocative part of the album - though that's not saying much).

I would recommend anyone thinking of acquiring this on the back of Steven Wilson's other work (including Bass Communion's other albums) to think carefully before splashing out on this one. If you're a 'completist' then sure, go ahead. Otherwise I'd steer clear.

This is a great set comes in a replica LP sleeve, complete with inner protective sleeve, nice touch!
The music is best described as moody and inclusive, and is the best music I have ever heard for a horror movie which has not been made, it's downright spooky.

Recommended the DVD-A which surrounds you with sound in way no CD could.

A review for someone looking to explore Steven Wilson's other projects 27 Sept. 2011
By B. Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is what Bass Communion is: Steven Wilson makes a Bass Communion album for every recording he makes. Bass Communion is essentially the spirit of what makes Steven Wilson's music his. His songs aren't just guitar riffs + vox + rhythm parts. It's the ambiance, the sonic backdrop that works in addition to the guitars, vocals and rhythm that gives the work of Steven Wilson/Porcupine Tree such breadth and richness.

He draws much of that from Richard Barbieri who plays keys for Porcupine Tree and is a living legend when it comes to sonic ambiance.

In short, Bass Communion is exactly what Steven Wilson claims it to be. It's the soul of his music. People might not appreciate it because it might be the soul but without the bones or the skin or the blood you don't have the rest of the song there you provide content and reference. I guess what I'm trying to say, if you've ever had a mood or a feeling but no specific event or condition to attribute it to, you can perhaps call it Bass Communion. It's the pure mood without the events that take place in a typical song to tell you why you feel that way. In the musical world of Steven Wilson, Bass Communion is just the synth backdrop "mood" sections playing a solo album. There's not much going on other than sounds and chord structures that provide a certain feeling to the listener. I'm not usually this artsy but in this case I know that this is exactly what Steven Wilson wants to provide with this music; a mood and ambiance without structure or rhythm. Music without music or Music without any distractions of the end goal which is a mood or feeling.

Just something different to experience, it's a good lesson in how Steven Wilson creates music and perhaps how you can use ambiance to enhance every work if done right.

no pal, this isn't PT 5 Feb. 2008
By Ronald H. Parry - Published on Amazon.com

For those expecting FOABP, you should keep moving. SW is a multi-dimentional artist, and he has said that Bass Communion is his most personal project. This is music more for contemplation than entertainment. My choice for listening to this CD is alone and in the dark.

Haunting 3 Nov. 2008
By idviginti - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For what it is, this composition is a fine work of art, practically perfect. It suits the mood for when the mood strikes, so it's not like you would listen to this all the time (unless you are creepy like that). Great piano and other textures.
haven't enjoyed as much as this album 30 Dec. 2014

I have ambient albums by Eno & Fripp, haven't enjoyed as much as this album. Is great in 5 channel. Maybe the Fripp & Eno albums would be better in 5 channel. I really enjoyed this.

With a good 5.1 system this will have you looking behind you. Not for the faint of heart or the immature. Highly recommended.
