Craig Breaden, Progarchy:

...Henry Fool conjures first wave English prog and ambient while alternately dodging and burning the spirit of King Crimson’s "Starless" and Soft Machine's Third. If anything could convince me this is the way rock's mainstream should have shaken out, Men Singing is it.

Walter Tunis, Kentucky.Com:

... just power up this glorious sleeper of an album and let Henry Fool take you on a 40-minute joyride. It's one of the great instrumental chill-outs of the season.

Terrell Brooks, Sea Of Tranquility:

...with each track these talented artists paint pictures for your mind as you are taken through various styles of music; sometimes proggy, sometimes jazzy and sometimes psychedelic. The music sounds like a bunch of guys got together and just had some fun jamming together, yet each musician is in perfect sync with the others.

Ray Harper, Total Music Magazine:

It also sounds like Caravan meets Hatfield and the North via Echoes era Pink Floyd. Cool be damned this is hot.

Mike Ostrich, The Examiner:

'Men Singing' isn't a nostalgic trip, far from it, but it harkens back to what was great about the fusion instrumental progressive rock scene and Henry Fool uses that as a starting point to forge their own path.

Jordan Blum, DOA:

If you’re a fan of jazz fusion with a touch of avant-garde experimentation, you should find plenty to like here. In an industry full of cookie-cutter mediocrity and safeness, artistry this daring and proficient deserves to be commended.

Sid Smith, Postcards From The Yellow Room:

Rippling with a propulsive vigour and halcyon sun-filled glades of what might pass for pastoral prog rock, the emphasis is on feel rather than showy examples of instrumental prowess. Each track undergoes significant episodes of contrasting but complementary atmospheres.

Miles, Classic Rock Society:

One for late night relaxing and very tastefully done.

Tommy Hash, YtseJam.Com:

...sparkling with a melodic drive featuring flowing semi-free form jazz tinged melodies juxtaposed with elegant atmospheric para-Fripp/Eno edge to afford something that strikes middle ground between the moody and free-form sides of art-rock...

Legacy (DE):

Breathtaking. A dynamic recording, a great happening.

Angel Romero, Progressive Rock Central:

This instrumental album brings together the best that progressive music has to offer, with a creative mix of jazz-rock, psychedelic space rock and progressive rock.

Dann Chin, Misfit City:

From the opening cymbal twists to the final harmonious thin-out, every single sound on here (collectively hovering in position like an immaculate air display) feels like the sound of a musician playing through their instruments in the right voice for the right moment… and that’s a rare achievement anywhere.

Mr Kinski's Music Shack:

The album is likely to appeal to fans of mid-period Porcupine Tree as well as those intrigued by Steven Wilson‘s recent foray into more improvisational / jazz-rock influenced material. If you like albums that disturb as much as entertain, then let the men of Henry Fool sing for you.

Greg MacLean,

Men Singing gets a grand recommendation for fans of the space rock Porcupine Tree records, new millennium King Crimson and its related ProjeKcts, and more general atmospheric rock and post-rock listeners.
