    It is a flood of art at its most naked that won’t relent until you are submersed.

    There Will Be No Intermission is a triumphant return of an uncompromising artist. It is singularly the best piece of work that Palmer has produced in her career.

    There Will Be No Intermission is a work of art. It’s as political a record as it is personal.

    This is not so much pop music, as music that might make your ears pop.

    Even though there are moments that skirt close to self-indulgence--there’s an entire song dedicated to celebrated author Judy Blume which still somehow works, while Bigger On The Inside stops being a heartfelt defence after a while and just turns into a bit of a whine--and you’re left with the impression that a sympathetic editor would do wonders for Palmer, there are still some heart-stopping moments of beauty on this third album.

    Her deft piano playing helps release some of the tension in her highwire act. [Apr 2019, p.34]

    If Palmer sometimes gets it wrong, when she gets its it right, nearly all is forgiven. [Apr 2019, p.89]

    Love this record. So much heartache and truth here. Easily her most raw and honest record yet.
