6/10 Clinton Staff review, 22 May 2014
'Bor-ing' says the post-it note and despite all Pallet's orchestral best intentions I'm sort of agreeing. He's like an X Factor sandpapered Arthur Russell, everything is in place; violins are continually a-staccato, arrangements are Dirty Projectors ambitious and his voice servicable with frequent leaps into falsetto but I just can't connect. You might be able to, he's certainly clever...maybe too clever. I do feel like I should be wearing a dinner jacket whilst listening to some of it, the ever-present strings do have a rather Ryuichi Sakamoto feel at times and its certainly ambitious. The jury is out but you get three bonus tracks if you buy the limited vinyl.
