    Cory Hanson's solo debut holds itself very upright, eyes straight ahead, creating the sense that its elegant parlour-folk could topple into mania at any moment. [Jan 2017, p.107]

    A weave of sublimely lysergic folk-pop. [Feb 2017, p.99]

    Though hushed, lush, and intimate psych-folk may not have been anyone's first choice for where Hanson's path might lead next, The Unborn Capitalist from Limbo is beautiful and strange, and proves to be a trip well worth taking.

    Its virtues lie in the quality of the songwriting, and the judicious arrangements: strings are used perfectly, to colour and shade rather than overwhelm. All in all, something of a gem.

    There’s a fair amount of whimsy, sure (and at points you feel a lava lamp and joss sticks might appear), but this focused, emotional side to Hanson is a welcome addition to this body of work.

    The Unborn Capitalist from Limbo is simultaneously unsettling and comforting in nature, as Hanson achieves what he ostensibly set out to do here: set a mood stuck somewhere between Heaven and Earth.

    The songs' real power comes from a sense of foreboding that undercuts the easy listening. [Dec 2016, p.30]
