    A quietly beautiful record. [Dec 2012, p.105]

    The quality, depth, and otherworldliness that Halstead has achieved here elevates it above being just another folk album.
  3. Halstead's songs and Euros Childs-like voice breathe the sort of honesty and goodness that's harder and harder to find in the iTunes age.

    Halstead gets closer to creating music that transmits his bare soul to the listener without much sonic trickery to get in the way. In the wrong hands, such a Spartan approach could end up boring, but in Halstead's case, it's completely transfixing and true.

    It's one of the more beautiful albums in recent memory. [Aug/Sep 2012, p.110]
  6. Though it may take some time to grow accustomed to, this is a record you'll want to wrap yourself up in.

    The songs on Palindrome Hunches are certainly pretty and play perfectly as background music for a variety of endeavors (washing dishes, vacuuming, etc.) but not much on here really stands out and catches your attention.
