Rolling Stone
Soft soul, classic blues, gutty funk, gospel, after-hours piano and guitar excursions, lite jazz — it’s all thereand regardless of what he does, Clapton never drops beneath a certain level of mastery and taste. […]

Entertainment Weekly
Clapton’s uncredited but not uninteresting 1997 collaboration with ”Reptile” coproducer Simon Climie, mixed New Agey texture jams with the sort of techno break beat blues fusion Moby would later get right. And to be sure, the guy still plays guitar like he cut a deal with the devil. […]

Reptile may be an uneven collection, but it’s best moments stand close listening. […]
