Rolling Stone - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The results can often recall Seventies Eno at his most meditative and Village Green-era Ray Davies at his most world-sick more than Gorillaz's bounce or Blur's guitar buzz."Spin - "[T]his some of Albarn's finest work....The songs are quiet and understated: They sidle and slink, ebb and flow."CMJ - "Because of its upbeat sound and layered lyrics that relate back to Albarn's message of technological disconnection, 'Mr. Tembo' is one of the most effective songs on the album."Paste (magazine) - "[T]he tender 'Photographs' finds Albarn exploring his warm lower register over a barely-there kick drum and watery piano; 'The Selfish Giant' is a seductive ballad about disintegrating love built on fluttering woodwind samples and dusty hi-hats."Pitchfork (Website) - "It is sleepy music, with the looseness of reggae and the bittersweet grace of gospel and soul. It connects the globetrotting Albarn to the fashionably moody one who sang Blur songs like 'Badhead' and 'This Is a Low'..."0.199365

Rolling Stone - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's an ambling, entrancing listen -- full of songs that blur weird folk and electronic zoinkiness, classical filigree and straight-up rock, scrambling in all directions as singer-guitarist Joe Newman sings in a pillowy KID A warble."Paste (magazine) - "Interlaying so many different phrasings, moods and sounds evokes this impression of traveling through a gallery of sonic sensibilities..."Clash (magazine) - "'Hunger Of The Pine' might stand to be one of the most emphatic songs alt-J has ever conceived.
