"By far his finest work to date; a brilliantly inventive and majestically sprawling album which sees the multi-skilled musician take on a wry, Philip Larkin-esque role of the eccentric outsider, casting a cheeky eye over a very British kind of hedonism."

"In a year when Blur are making another one of their grand comebacks and his lauded bandmate Damon Albarn is releasing two new albums, it is all the more remarkable that 'A+E' will quite possibly be the best thing to come out of the Blur camp this year."

"It will certainly appeal to anyone who enjoyed the hectic, raucous rock-pop aspect of Blur's '13'. It is fresh, feisty and funny... Maybe the title stands for 'Artistry plus Excellence'."
