This is Public Image Ltd continuing to be what it has always been: an endless, enthralling exploration of Lydon’s ever-roiling mind.

Pitchfork

.. a reminder of the band's former genius and a treat for longtime fans who should appreciate at least half the album as solid PiL work.

Consequence of Sound

On the surface, it looks and sounds (somewhat) like P.I.L., but in the end, it’s a rather soulless copy.

A.V. Club

He’s also fallen back into self-reference, only now it can be properly called by another name: self-caricature.

In case you forgot it, this is PIL, not the PIL you knew 20 years before, but an updated version that maintains part of the past glory.

A shell of the former great, middle age angst not working for PIL
