    I really love ISIS, my all time favorite band and Deftones are right behind them. I also like the other Chino's side projects but I don't really like Palms. It's not because I was expecting a heavier album, something just doesn't click for me.

    In my opinion, this is the best music Chino Moreno has put out since White Pony. The songs are very long, but they all avoid repetition, and there isn't much padding either. In fact, the sound of the album is a bit like White Pony, but more ambient and expansive.
    The album rarely gets very heavy, and it's far from fast paced, but if that isn't something that bothers you, then you ought
    to enjoy it. A great album to relax to.
    For me, it's the best album of 2013, even over Run the Jewels.

    For the time being Palms are holding fast to a distinctly high-flying trajectory. [Oct 2013, p.90]

    On Palms, the underlying parts fit together so smoothly that there's never any friction that could lead to a spark.

    Palms is a marriage made in post-rock heaven. [Aug 2013, p.86]
