Spin - "[A]n intriguing statement of contemporary anxiety that often feels far more connected to OK COMPUTER and HAIL TO THEIF than it does PARKLIFE and 13."

Spin - "The triumph, though, is that despite being a piece with Blur's best work, this ain't a retread."

Magnet - "Blur's most consistently great album in almost 20 years....It's a joy to hear Graham Coxon -- undisputedly the best guitarist of his generation -- make a glorious racket once more."
