"The life of Dee...is beautifully sketched." -- MOJO (4/5)
"...the most compelling record that Albarn has made since Blur's 13" -- UNCUT (8/10 stars)
"possibly his most musically sophisticated and melodically rich work to date" THE TIMES
"a beautifully realised song cycle" The Sun-- 4½/5 stars
"A genuinely inventive work covering English identity, Imperialism and the occult." CLASH
"...one of the most dazzling works of recent years." -- RECORD COLLECTOR (5/5 stars -- Album Of The Month)
"these delicately woven ballads rival anything in the Blur or Gorillaz canon ...spellbinding music." THE TIMES

Dr Dee is 18 tracks of songs and music inspired by the life of John Dee, mathematician, polymath and advisor to Elizabeth I. Described by Albarn as 'strange pastoral folk', Dr Dee is a fitting companion to the end of another Elizabethan age. The album combines Albarn's voice with early English choral and instrumentation alongside modern, West African and Renaissance sounds.

Dr Dee was recorded late last year in Albarn's West London studio and also in Salford with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. The album was mixed by Valgeir Sigursson in Reykjavik.
