Editors’ Notes

This Swedish ensemble have never been shy of ambition: Communion is a 24-track “double album,” with each song representing an hour of the day. This epic strategy takes shape immediately with the slow, graceful build of the opening cut, “Babel On,” where singer Ebbot Lundberg calls upon the masses to “come on” as the song slowly unveils its dramatic arc over a six-and-a-half minute trajectory. An unexpected cover of Nick Drake’s masterwork “Fly” neatly slips in between these anthemic treatises on modern life. “The Ego Delusion,” the sweetly ponderous “Second Life Replay” and “Everything Beautiful Must Die” bounce between serious discussions about life and the silliness that these conversations often evoke. Soundtrack are that unusual group who manage to scale grand heights of potential pretension and somehow manage to take the air out of the balloon with the perfect riff and sudden shift to garage band-type under-sophistication. The band’s unique brand of modern psychedelia helps keep things constantly swirling and under headphones the band’s layers peel away with intriguing moments of insight.

Customer Reviews

There Is Hope In The Music World!

I have been a Soundtrack fan my whole life, I have every album the band has ever made and even managed to get an autographed copy of this album. This is one of the best rock and roll records I have ever heard in my life. The quality of this band's music seems to improve on each record. Both discs of this epic package are full of memorable and fantastic songs that are perfect to be added to your Soundtrack collection. I love this record and believe it to be one of Soundtrack's finest pieces since Behind The Music. Listen to The Soundtrack Of Our Lives, because life is too short not to! - Coz

These guys don't quit!

I think communion is near perfect. As an entire album it is a journey thru up's and down's , over and outs! Musically and lyrically it is up there with Origins and Behind. If it don't grab ya the first time, stick around for more, because it will not let you go. Be prepared : TSTOOL will hold you hostage again!


This is an increadibly deep and rich work. It's long and exploratory yet utterly engaging and beautiful. Anyone who has liked TSOOL or even had a passing interest should really give Communion a listen. Consider it a reward for putting up with the dearth of quality modern music. Communion is truly an album in the sense where you just press play and let the journey begin. Album of the year hands down.


Genre: Pop

Ebbot Lundberg (vocals) and Bjorn Olsson (guitar) were founders of the wildly exciting Swedish band Union Carbide Productions, which recorded several albums that mixed Captain Beefheart and punk (think Stooges) to wonderful effect in the late '80s. Eventually Ian Person joined Union Carbide Productions on guitar. By this point, however, Lundberg was becoming influenced by Love and other late-'60s psych-pop bands and was steering the band in this direction, causing friction within the band. After...
