It is one of the most rewarding albums I have ever heard.
Murat Batmaz
I downloaded Communication Lost, and was, at first, very intrigued by it's mellow, yet undeniably powerful sound.
S. Killmer
I'm couldn't even come close to describing how good this album is, you just have to listen for yourself.

Every now and then, a disc comes along and touches your inner self like no other, and this is one of those discs. After playing this for hundreds of times since its release only a few months ago, I am absolutely awestruck.

Contrary to what the casual progressive metal fan may expect, all members play to the strength of the songs. Marcus Losbjer's sparse drumming coupled with Per Henriksson's keyboard and piano work form the backdrop of the songs. Losbjer's playing is characterized by steady, tasteful drum beats while Henriksson utilizes both solo piano passages and more modern soundscapes to further diversify the pieces and lay down the foundation for vocalist Stefan Zell's career-defining vocals. Zell simply puts in his best performance of his career. From his soaring voice on the melodically enchanting "Into the Great Nothing" to his use of light/dark contrast on "Poison Ivy" with stunning vocal swells to his singing over a solo piano and cello passage on "What Remains," it is impossible not to get goose bumps while listening to him. The more I hear him sing the more I am convinced he is from another planet. This is so far the greatest vocal performance of 2011 alongside Cynthesis' Erik Rosvold for me.

At over 70 minutes, the songs blend into one another seamlessly, not too different from Fates Warning's masterwork A Pleasant Shade of Gray. Like Matheos, guitarist Mikael Zell plays only a few solos, of which the ones on "Your Favourite War" and "Embrace" are staggering. Very melodic, his phrasing is unique and his articulation grand. The solos feel almost like songs within songs, especially given the dark subject matter.

While mainstream success has eluded them, Sweden's Wolverine continue to put out high quality albums. Communication Lost continues in the direction they started down with their 2006 album Still; compared to their earlier work there is less focus on experimentation and unusual rhythms, and more on melody and atmosphere. They've also been getting a bit mellower; I wouldn't consider them to be truly a metal band anymore, though there are still certainly heavy moments.

I believe this is their best album yet, without a single weak track. Stefan Zell's vocals are amazing, conveying emotion, power and melody; I've heard he left the band at one point between Still and Communication Lost, and am glad he returned. The lyrics reflect some difficult times various band members went through before the recording of the album, but despite this aren't really depressing. The musicianship is strong, but focuses more on texture and song than showiness.

I strongly recommend this album to fans of groups like Porcupine Tree, Riverside, Anathema, Opeth, Demians and Votum.

I'm couldn't even come close to describing how good this album is, you just have to listen for yourself. If you liked Wolverine's previous album "Still", you won't believe how much they have grown since then, and that album was pretty great too.

This band was a great surprise. They sound a lot like Riverside or maybe Blackfield. They are labeled as progressive metal, but their songs are more ballad like. Very powerful and easy to listen to.
