    While undoubtedly a bit too long, The Time Is Now reaffirms Craig David’s standing as a fine and flexible pop songwriter with all sorts of hooks up his sleeve.

    David may have worked hard to rejoin the pop firmament, but he seems slightly lost now that he’s arrived.

    The Time Is Now hangs together relatively well, and achieves what it sets out to do.
  4. What The Time Is Now lacks in coherency, it makes up for in sheer enthusiasm.

    A set that is less scattered stylistically--dominated by tropical house and trap stylings--yet less consistent quality-wise.

    For an album called The Time Is Now, David spends too much of his time looking like he's trying to catch up.

    David takes the album title's sentiment to heart to such a degree, every song sounds like a cover version of whatever transient entries are currently topping the charts.
