  1. Reptile shows the guitar legend continuing to explore classic blues-derived sounds with palpable sincerity and conviction.
  2. 80
    As a slice of rootsy blues, it works nicely.
  3. Over the course of fourteen tracks, Clapton blends virtually every style he's worked in during the past thirty-five years. Whether it will strike your ears as something-for-everyone generosity or a patchy jumble probably depends on how much of a purist you are.
  4. With guitars down in the mix (when they aren't unplugged altogether), Clapton's ever-evolving voice is the real centerpiece.
  5. A smooth and engaging affair, with consistently strong singing and playing from Clapton.

    A bit slick, but that's Clapton since 30 years. Makes me want to play guitar myself again, which should be a plus!
