    The album's longer numbers (four of the ten songs are five minutes or longer) are the more successful ones, as they're better able to stretch out and create a suitably hypnotic mood.

    Fewer Pro Tool and more risks, and Dhani might just be onto something.

    thefearofmissingout makes for an excellent, extended mood piece, but its distinguishing moments and alluring melodies are almost too subtle for their own good.

    While half of the album succeeds in combining a slew of genres and sonic elements into a cohesive mix, the experiments don't always work so well.

    Amid the psychedelic soft rock and esoteric twiddling, three tracks stand out. [Sep 2012, p.94]

    Every song on the tracklist is fluid, fresh, and endued with a sense of fun.

    Whatever generic associations critics wish to make, thefearofmissingout is a solid, if unfocused, effort.

    Though his band can meander, Harrison has proven himself his own man. [Oct 2-012, p.107]

    The future-shocked verses and digital wheedling often miss their marks, but as a vehicle for Harrison's soulful voice, the band is a work-in-progress worth watching.
