  1. Groove Armada have a knack for producing fantastic underground dance tracks, in a variety of tempos, and packing them full of hooks.
  2. 90
    A truly superb and definitive record...
  3. Stuffed full of collaborations, the duo has created a multi layered, analogue driven, polished yet powerful long player.
  4. 80
    Less an electronica CD than a dub album without any original sources--and it's all the freer for it. [Oct 2001, p.128]
  5. In sharing its predecessor's desire to cover every musical base, Goodbye Country (Hello Nightclub) suggests a continued identity crisis.
  6. Now, it’s the chilled tracks that seem limited and generic... The fortunate tradeoff is that the album’s three strobe-lit tracks definitely bring it on.
  7. It's hard to listen to this deeply disappointing record for long without wanting to revisit Vertigo instead.
