"Despite the many hugely talented performers involved, Dr Dee is less philosopher's stone, and more curate's egg: a handful of fine songs where Albarn plays to his existing strengths, but mired in a sea of over-reaching folly."

"Dr. Deestays just this side of compelling, always threatening to veer into surprising, dangerous territory yet never quite succumbing to the risk."

"When Dr Dee shines, though, it blinds. "The Moon Exalted" is a sumptuous, six-minute, multi-movement piece."
