    The fact that Comicopera is a masterpiece proves it all right nicely. [Fall 2007, p.113]
  2. This is an incredibly well fused and structured album that taps into a wide range of emotions.
  3. The songs on Comicopera rate amongst his very best--emotionally complex, politically charged but never short of beautiful.
  4. A superb album, in which Wyatt gathers all of his strengths, with the personal and the political, the aesthetic and the ethical are brought together as only he can. [Nov 2007, p.64]
  5. It's a portrait of an English radical at 62, but it's personal and emotional and neither strident nor stodgy.
  6. The sweetest instrument, however, is Wyatt’s voice, whose fragile, high, quavering tone is honest to the core.
  7. However, like so many singular artists, Wyatt's presence spans the record and ultimately gives it its necessary gel. His multi-octave voice booms, croons, and cracks across the album with stunning clarity and consistency.
  8. Really, all of Comicopera rolls deliriously over pillowy layers of sound
