Spin (pp.105-6) - "Smith's intentions cry out from the album's every discordant corner - he clearly wanted to test himself, to unhinge parts of his sound....In the music, in these songs, the guy's still with us." - Grade: A-

Spin (p.67) - Ranked #6 in Spin's "40 Best Albums of the Year" - "BASEMENT feels monumentally final..."
