  1. 9.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    It’s an exercise in survival and Amanda Palmer is an artist who is dedicated to doing what she’s on this earth to do. There Will Be No Intermission is a work of art. It’s as political a record as it is personal

  2. 9.0 |   PopMatters

    A triumphant return of an uncompromising artist. It is singularly the best piece of work that Palmer has produced in her career

  3. 8.0 |   The Irish Times

    Palmer avoids the theatrics and sounds softer than ever before. She fixates on the complexities of the personal and the contradictions of the public, and, in doing so, she throws out a lifeline – a long one at that – to those who need something to hold on to

    Her deft piano playing helps release some of the tension in her highwire act. Print edition only

  8. 7.0 |   Earbuddy

    While none of these tracks on their own will be enough to stop you in your tracks or beg to be heard at inconvenient times, it’s pleasantly listenable given its unpleasantly uncomfortable subject matter

  9. 7.0 |   The Music

    An update on life over the last few years, including life, death and the inevitability of US politics

  10. 6.5 |   Under The Radar

    It is lushly orchestrated, but still lyrically predominant, and for this reason it can feel both healing and like a sermon. This is an album of unusual candor, underscored by a persistent will intent on healing

  11. 6.0 |   All Music

    Designed to demand attention, even if it doesn't necessarily command it-it's too obtuse and willful for that

  12. 6.0 |   Mojo

    If Palmer sometimes gets it wrong, when she gets its it right, nearly all is forgiven. Print edition only
