"In an undergound sticky with armchair music critics whose chief activity is swapping facts from CD liner notes, Halana's creators take an organic route and end up with a winner." —Aaron Burgess, Alternative Press, July 1996

"Halana gets this issue's "best zine" award (if such a thing existed) without much difficulty." —Brian Duguid, EST #7
