Dublin Concerts music review has this to say "‘Headstoned’ kicks off with devastatingly beautiful piano, immediately grabbing our attention with its somber enchantment. However, it is when the distinct baritone vocals come into play that we become completely absorbed. This is the song that you will hear on the radio and ask “what is this called?” and, “who are this band?”. With just this one tune, Hail The Ghost have created something special – a new sound for the Irish much spectrum."
