    This is charming. And uplifting. Happy-sad but impossibly soothing. [Nov 2011, p.92]

    The album is most striking in what it conveys in simplicity. [Oct 2011, p.101]

    Loney, Dear hasn't changed much, and that's what makes this inimitable album such great company.

    In the end, Hall Music is an enjoyable but paradoxical album, both an expansion and contraction of Svanängen's palette.

    For all the sonic strides Svanangen takes on Hall Music, he sometimes seems stuck singing the same sad song.

    Where Dear John hinted at cinematic grandeur and prayer-like melody, Hall Music is a spacious and somber affair.

    With Hall Music, Svanangen has proven he can compose big arrangements, but he might not write big music.
