  1. They're old-fashioned, but in the best sense: they're in it for the long haul, which the superb Warpaint proves beyond a shadow of a doubt.
  2. Never in 24 years have The Black Crowes either changed their tune or sounded contrived, and they’re getting better all the time in their dependably unfashionable way.
  3. A much-matured (now fortysomething father) Chris ?nds peace and clarity through some of his ?nest, most poetic storytelling to date.
  4. Warpaint starts off strong--the first third of the album reveals some of the best range and craft of the band's career--but songs like 'We Who See the Deep' are just too unfocused to be memorable.
  5. Though no song stands out as particularly remarkable, Warpaint drips steady consistency.
  6. It's not a huge departure for the Southern songbirds but proves them to be magisterial practitioners of the dark blues-rock arts.
  7. 60
    It's not a great album but it is good, bar a slapdash feel to some songs and too much squealing, dated guitar. [Apr 2008, p.100]
