Charles Bradley: No Time for Dreaming
Hal Horowitz of AllMusic said, "Retro-soul aficionados who claim they don't make 'em like they used to will obviously be thrilled with this, but even contemporary R&B fans can't help but be moved by the emotion and passion evident in every note of this riveting set." Benjamin Boles of Now said, "While it took a little while for the magic to finally get laid down to tape, the results are worth the wait." Mike Madden of PopMatters said, "You don't need to know his back story to fall in love with Bradley—the music speaks for itself. This album has been a looooong time coming, but it's more than worth the wait." Max Blau of Paste said, "No Time for Dreaming not only prevails as a defining culmination of Bradley's lifelong musicianship to date, but also furthers the argument that Daptone Records can do no wrong."
