Pitchfork

What the record lacks in brevity and nous it just about makes up for in the thrill of not quite knowing where Egyptian Hip Hop are leading you.

While it is not as catchy or instant as the band’s earlier material, Good Don’t Sleep is a bold and slightly odd return that underscores the quartet’s intricate layers.

NME

When Egyptian Hip Hop’s experiments in mixing old pop, new pop and the underground work, they really work. When they don’t, they’re hard to listen to.

FACT Magazine

In many respects, Good Don’t Sleep is an impressively accomplished record. Sadly it’s one that, ultimately, is deserving only of superficial fondness.

Drowned in Sound

Inventiveness soon gives way to repetition and Good Don’t Sleep falls into a pattern, several tracks indistinguishable from others.

The 405

Ultimately, quirks are not nearly enough to save this disappointing debut.
