Critic score distribution:

  2. Negative: 0 out of 11
  1. There’s more under the pleasant surfaces of these songs than first meets the ears, more subtly inventive textures than blatant quirks: evidence that the Zincs are indeed on the move.
  2. The brooding mid-mid-tempo pacing and smoky classic-rock guitar grandeur set a table for some serious moping.
  3. "Black Pompadour" suffers from split- personality disorder.
  4. Black Pompadour is not a bad album, it’s just flat; it’s delivered with little to no passion, meaning that listening to it in its entirety will be a test of patience for some.
  5. Under The Radar
    Despite the occasional clever line or particularly striking melody, the album is largely unremarkable. [#17, p.96]
