"Hall has crafted a perfect, narrative soundtrack"
- Midwest Record, May 27, 2016
"Understanding The Signs from Geoff Hall is a pretty impressive album for a debut artist, he has really placed his heart on his musical sleeve and gone for it and I am both proud and glad to say that he has been extremely successful in doing so, I can see the electronic and new age music fans are going to fall in love with this album very quickly indeed and as such I have no problem at all recommending it to you."
- Steve Sheppard, One World Music Radio, June 2016 (UK)
