    The songs on Hollow are modest--there's no closing epic, and the choruses are catchy but don't aim to be anthems--but the band seems to have found its true strength here in a sound that's pretty far removed from the implied violence of its name.

    COYH may not have yet reached their Promised Land, but they're at least headed in the right direction.

    Cut Off Your Hands' anthemic-ness--its lack of austerity and rigor--will put some people off. Yet there's something rather good in the way these songs bring together luxury and despair.

    A more concise and consistent outing than their debut, Hollow reaffirms that while Cut Off Your Hands may not be innovators, they're still quite good at what they do.
