  1. The trio have also grown more comfortable singing the blues and incorporating meatier harmonica and guitar arrangements, and lurching tracks like Out Of The Wilderness and A Little Blues make up for weaker soft rock ballads that leave little impression.
  2. Unbearably stark. [Nov 2006, p.136]
  3. While their talent keeps Hello Love engaging... the album is nonetheless The Be Good Tanyas at their most laid-back.
  4. Hello Love is certainly the most hinged of their three releases, in that it sounds the cleanest—the most streamlined both instrumentally and lyrically. Too bad what it’s saying is, more often than not, familiar to the point of being trite.

    It sounds like they are going through the motions a bit, but that still beats much of what it out there.

    I never participate in music reviews but have not stopped listening to this album. Probably better than either of the previous efforts and I never participate in music reviews but have not stopped listening to this album. Probably better than either of the previous efforts and "somber" is inaccurate; reflective is a better descriptor. Full Review »
