    The result is a strong, confident record that's his best solo effort to date.

    The result is his best and most kinetic solo album yet.

    Whilst it's obviously no Dog Man Star, Brett Anderson's tenth round rings the bell for a local hero with spirit reborn, heart aflame, trash talkin' and eyeing the prize once more.

    While imparting a palpable sense of immediacy to the performances, there are some tracks that could do with more work.

    Black Rainbows is the right album at the right moment. With its rich, layered sound and its hugely enjoyable preening, it is unashamedly Suede-esque. [Nov. 2011, p. 127]

    Black Rainbows is a pretty good dress rehearsal. [Oct 2011, p.97]

    Anderson's songs still find him leading a herd of misunderstood waifs but offer little to tempt the uninitiated. [Oct 2011, p.81]
