  1. Like its predecessor, the stellar Sleepwalking is steeped in mature songwriting craftsmanship and versatile rhythms that encompass dance, reggae, hip-hop, and left-field ambiance.
  2. The record closes with "Salvation", an epic comedown, courtesy of a massive vocal by Siron, R&C's liveshow frontwoman.... Such an abrupt end is testament to Sleepwalking's unrelenting desire for boldness and ability to execute such grand designs.
  3. There is strong instrumental feeling - sometimes joyful, sometimes melancholic and sometimes alluring and seductive - in every single track.
  4. Urb
    Hip-hop, soul, reggae and other influences are skillfully interwoven into a consistently strong whole.... An engaging, intelligent album. [#82, p.146]
  5. Alternative Press
    The duo's strength is their songwriting skills, which are being honed to a razor's edge here. [#153, p.84]
  6. Another triumph, brimming with soulful, languid grooves, deft samples and well-chosen guest singers.
  7. 70
    By assembling a heavyweight lineup of talent to support -- including soul legend Bobby Womack, the Congos, and the Pharcyde -- Rae & Christian set lofty aspirations and, more often than not, reach them.
  8. Not since Bomb the Bass's "Clear" has a British production team re-interpreted aging African American tropes so persuasively.
  9. Spin
    And while 'Sleepwalking' can't help but sink into the somnambulism its title promises, R&C also get ambitious, abandoning lathery fantasia for something a little earthier. [Apr 2001, p.163]
