Colonial Drones has a big sound, upward movement, punchy hooks, singalong choruses and the tightness of a touring band.
Hallelujah the Hills [have] jumped to the accelerated class on their second album, Colonial Drones.
…it's Walsh and his compadres conjuring a rough-hewn classic out of homey materials. Great stuff.
Colonial Drones, as the title aptly suggests, is a work full of fantasy-like explorations, laden with anthemic choruses and lyrics freely open for interpretation.
…as catchy as each song can be, what grew on me is how they all mesh into a cohesive whole.
It’s this open-minded and open-ended approach that has made HTH one of Boston’s most prized pop possessions. We’re not likely to hear a local album that trumps the wonders of Colonial Drones anytime soon.
It doesn't take long to realize this album is something extra special.
