    Bolstered further by very solid production, clever use of effects, and strong clean vocals, The Hollow is quite simply one of the best metalcore albums in a long time.

    Memphis May Fire are stepping it up with every release.
  3. If you're looking for a solid heavy record to give a spin, give The Hollow a chance.

    There may not dispense with metalcore's regular musical motifs, then, yet the ire throughout is genuine enough that you can feel flecks of venom melting vocalist Matty Mullins' microphone. [4 Jun 2011, p.53]

    Ultimately, though, the tracks and Memphis May Fire themselves are the sum of their parts and little more; like many young bands, they haven't learned yet that writing a bunch of parts isn't the same thing as writing a song.

    Unfortunately, the songs still suffer from the same downfalls as their previous material; the album lives in the safe middle ground between Shadows Fall and Underoath. [May 2011, p.96]
