Only of interest for hardcore fans
(3 out of 5 stars)

""Colossus" is Scorn's strangest and least accessible album. The drum sound is sharper, the guitars are more dissonant, and the voices are more distorted than on any other Scorn album. With its' claustrophobic and threatening atmosphere this record may be the soundtrack for the Apocalypse, but it often sounds a little forced. N.J.Bullen isn't a very good guitarist and can't be compared with Goldflesh's Justin Broadrick, who was featured on the previous album "Vae Solis". The best track on "Colossus" is "White Irises Blind", which appears on the EP collection of the same name. If you are a new Scorn fan, i recommend you to buy "W.I.B.", because it gives you a good overview of Scorn's earlier work. But "Colossus" is not a necessity unless you have to own Scorn's full backcatalogue."
Bridge between Vae Solis and later Scorn

"If you have taken the Napalm Death route to Scorn (Mick Harris "the tornado" was the drummer for ND), then you MUST check out Vae Solis (which features Justin Broadrick from Godflesh on Guitars) and then Colossus.As the earlier reviewer reported that the guitars are more dissonant and beats/drums are sharper - thats becuase of the grindcore roots of Nik and Mick. But there are more "trancy/ dance" like beats embedded within, which is like the most popular Evanascence album of Scorn.In short, if your backgroud is Ambient, dance, trip-hop you are most likely not going to like this album. But if your roots are in Grindcore and are open-minded to different types of heavy music, this album is for you.BTW, the beats on this album are killer, just as other Scorn albums."
