    It's an uneven ride and not without longuers. [Nov 2011, p.93]
  2. 60
    The project's brevity certainly explains the lack of coherence over the 14 tracks, although that's not to say there aren't some thrilling individual moments.
  3. Nov 2, 2011
    The music here definitely works best when this spirit of interaction is at the forefront, with potentially disparate musical ideas serving to complement and enhance each other.
  4. Uncut
    Nov 1, 2011
    The results are impressive enough, though never totally successful in effecting seamless rapprochement between cultures. [Nov 2011, p.92]
  5. 60
    DRC Music may save the world after all, but they haven't done enough to make this a truly lasting effort.
  6. 60
    The sole constant is the skeletal, staccato patter of peppery percussion throbbing beneath each track, the everpresent heartbeat of a project in aid of Oxfam.
  7. Under The Radar
    Nov 2, 2011
    As with Albarn's other altruistic ventures, the intention is better than the product. [Oct 2011, p.98]
