There Will Be No Intermission - Very Good, Based on 4 Critics

The Line of Best Fit - 90
Based on rating 9/10

The irony of this is not lost on me: As I sat to translate my notes to sentences, "Bigger on the Inside" piano-plucking through my headphones, I was faced with unsolicited advances in a park. I thought, as Amanda Palmer sang, "I think it's funny that he asked me/ cos I don't feel like a fighter lately/ I am too unhappy", she's right. Life provides no breaks to any of us.

New Musical Express (NME) - 80
Based on rating 4/5

Dense and intense, the new record from cult hero Amanda Palmer is loaded with the drama of real life. Her fans crowdfunded the album, and she's given all of herself in return When she was at the helm of the dark punk cabaret duo The Dresden Dolls, Amanda Palmer‘s knack for baring her soul on the most melodramatic scale inspired a fevered devotion among her fans. So much so that she set a mighty high Kickstarter record to pay for her second solo album, 'Theatre Is Evil', in 2012.

Under The Radar - 65
Based on rating 6.5/10

Some albums articulate themselves like finely chiseled sculptures. They depict the diverse panoply of sensation through a shared sensibility that elevates the disparate snapshots into a common aesthetic approach that holds them all together. Other albums prefer to maintain the identity of the particular, touring us through a swirl of memories and experiences that individually contain snippets of profound truth, but when added together seem more like a scrapbook or photo album.

AllMusic - 60
Based on rating 6/10

Amanda Palmer isn't one for small gestures. Ever since her early days in the punky Dresden Dolls, the singer/songwriter favored grand theatricality, but that tendency reaches its full flower on There Will Be No Intermission, her third album and first solo effort since 2012's Theatre Is Evil. Palmer didn't keep quiet in the interim between these two records -- collaborations in particular abounded -- but given this is her first set of songs in seven years, it would seem this would be a clearinghouse of long-festering ideas.
