Erlewine described the song as "an incredible slice of singalong pop spiked with winding, fluid guitar and synth eruptions. Like, say, a Blur B-side. Lindsay Zoladz's review of the album as part of Blur 21 for Pitchfork claimed that "Death of a Party" is the album's highlight, speculating that it influenced Gorillaz — another musical project that features Albarn as the chief songwriter.

Hunter called the song a "classic '90s road ballad". In a November video interview, Rowntree claimed, "It's a much more aggressive record in many ways as well as a more emotional record.

The artwork for Bluras well the album's associated singles, was designed by design company Yacht Associates, which consists of Chris Thomson and Richard Bull.
Searching for an image that conveyed "both optimism and scariness", Yacht Associates chose the stock photo from Tony Stone Imagesdescribing it as "an anaesthetic dream". The back cover and inside sleeve by Paul Postle depict sulphur fields in Iceland, where much of the album was recorded. Postle also took photos of the band rehearsing for the gatefold. When questioned on this decision, Albarn revealed they "didn't wanna have to go through explaining what the lyrics are about because they're quite odd to explain," although he stated that "'Death of a Party' and 'Strange News From Another Star' are [both] pretty clear.
The music press predicted that the lo-fi sonic experimentation would alienate Blur's fanbase. These fears were also shared by James who revealed that the front rows of the gigs that the Album) were performing at during the Britpop years were primarily attracting year-old girls and that he thought the change in style was a "fucking big balls move". We'd won Brits, we'd won two consecutive Q magazine Albums of the Year and my initial reaction was it's awkward and difficult.

After the success of BlurAlbum), the band embarked on a nine-month world tour. Blur received generally positive reviews from music critics in the United States,  but reviews were mixed in the UK press. Certainly, they are trying for new sonic territory, bringing in shards of white noise, gurgling electronics, raw guitars, and druggy psychedelia, but these are just extensions of previously hidden elements of Blur's music. What they haven't done on Blur is roll out of bed, strum a few chords and loudly free-associate about the first thing that pops into their heads.
This is a record that inhabits current American rock biases as cogently and intelligently as Parklife corralled the last few decades of British rock. Ed Masley wrote that "you can hear the new infatuation with indie rock stylings all over the latest release, with its clattering sonic collages and transistor radio vocals.
