CRITIC REVIEWS

A.V. Club

Only with the exquisite, hazily-focused Dr Dee, Albarn has succeeded in alchemically—if not perfectly—transforming cotton and foil into silver and gold.

Dr Dee may be a unique stand-alone subject but despite its at times challenging and dense sound, it is a record that fits perfectly into Albarn’s ever-growing catalogue. 

70
PopMatters

 It’s accessible in parts, immensely challenging in others, and beguiling in its entirety. 

70
Drowned in Sound

If it’s not a masterwork it’s an evocative accompaniment to a summer’s day, a sporadic but persuasive reminder of how spine-tingling Albarn’s voice can be

67
Pitchfork

The Dr Dee soundtrack is a deeply felt but difficult to love entry into Albarn's entirely singular discography.

60
Consequence of Sound

There aren’t any tornados here. Dr Dee is more of a musical fog made for sipping tea while blankly gazing onto a desolate street.

NME

Clearly Damon is pleased to be carving a niche in the world of high art, but perhaps ‘Dr Dre The Opera: Nuthin’ But An ENO Thang’ might have served his legend better.

Paste

Worst of all, Dr. Dee’s just not pretty music.

40
Under The Radar

As a piece of music, however, the operatic folk of Dr. Dee doesn't leave much of an impression.
