    For the most part, Hauschka's attempt at turning the piano into a percussion instrument falls short. [May 2011, p.84]

    Fleshed out by two drummers, strings and brass, it's as infectious and disarming as it is genre-defying. [May 2011, p.109]

    As with all of Hauschka's music, Salon Des Amateurs takes place at an awkward apex between being "beautiful" and being merely "pretty". This is actually quite an important distinction, because the album never decides whether its pop music or classical music.
