"Hindson has amazing range. He could probably wring a concerto from the sound of a doorbell. His source material ranges from classical to Metallica to soothing melodic riffs that may have been extracted from an elevator. Best of all, it works." -- San Francisco Chronicle

"... gaudy, exuberant music... Mr Hindson’s score makes a wonderful racket... shamelessly big and juicily orchestral... broodingly and sometimes achingly intimate..." -- The New York Times
