Pitchfork
Fittingly, it’s the most remorseful album of Womack’s career– an apology for his rampant drug use and womanizing, apparently written with his ex-wife Regina in mind (the two are separated but still legally married, …). […]

The Guardian
While Albarn and Russell dominate the record’s sound, like a newfangled west London Neptunes, Womack – suffering colon cancer – is upfront and centre, spewing contrition, bewilderment, disdain and yearning in a voice whose authority has only increased with age. […]

The Telegraph
Albarn and Russell can only be congratulated for getting the old warrior back where he belongs, in the studio, singing as if his life depends on it. We are in the presence of mad, brilliant, soulful genius and there is no choice but to surrender. […]
