    The whole album is characterised by a subtle, all-pervading sense of menace that superbly offsets Campbell's snow-pure vocals and sparsely psychedelic orchestration. [Dec 2006, p.104]

    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score

    Rice doesn't dismiss outright the folky troubadour charm that distinguished O, but here it's a springboard for jealousy, sex, misery. [Dec 2006, p.104]

    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's both so clever and so very charming. [Nov 2006, p.114]

    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Neither the return of the Last Gang In Town, nor the crisp, literate, wonderfully confident pop with which Albarn perfectly crystallised the mid-1990s. Instead, The Good, The Bad & The Queen is a noir-ishly understated suite of songs, further testament to its chief author's need to keep on moving. [Jan 2007, p.98]
    • Mojo
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score

    • 80 Critic Score
    The majority of Not Too Late hums with a placid darkness and neurosis which is as delicious as it is unexpected. [Feb 2007, p.104]
