    An excellent companion to this year's "Break it Yourself". It managed to capture the spirit of the "Old timey" sets during this year's tour. As someone who managed to make it out to two stops, this album was a nice little "thank you hat tip" from Mr. Bird. Lots of good memories evoked.

    Hands Of Glory is a flamboyant country cousin [to 2012's Break it Yourself]. [Feb 2013, p.92]

    Maybe he's not the kind of artist you need to hear stripped down. [Jan 2013, p.101]

    This sidecar is neither evolution nor revolution, though its eight tracks contain a fair share of intrigue and insight into Bird's feverish 2011, as well as a contemporary rearrangement so sweet it should comer rimmed in sugar. [No. 93, p.58]
