Rolling Stone
As for the studio cuts, they are plagued with the same fault which hindered Wheels of Fire. Cream was best at playing blues; however, none of the stuff they wrote was blues. […]

Blogcritics
Cream‘s decision to go out with a bang after such a short career has added to the group’s mystique. Clapton would quickly land in yet another very short-lived supergroup, but Goodbye remains a credible (if not spectacular) swan song. […]

In summary, the only justification for buying this album is the studio recordings. They are excellent songs which are among Cream‘s best. Badge alone would make this album well worth it for Cream fans; it is that good of a song. The live tracks are largely disappointing and are the main reason that Goodbye gets a 3.5/5. […]
