  1. 10.0 |   The Skinny

    It’s 2010 people, we are now officially in the future and Four Tet has got the soundtrack off to a superb start

  2. 10.0 |   The Times

    The groundbreaking electronic producer Kieran Hebden’s fifth album as Four Tet is a career high
    Read Review

  3. 10.0 |   Slant Magazine

    It's that rare record where an established artist manages to surpass his own exceedingly high standards
    Read Review

  4. 10.0 |   A.V. Club

    If this isn’t the best Four Tet record yet, it’s certainly a fresh face for Hebden
    Read Review

  5. 9.0 |   The Quietus

    It never forgets the value of melody and refuses to sacrifice this notion for the sake of relentless beats. This is an album to return to time and again and one that will doubtless be ubiquitous in those end-of-year round-ups we've just left behind

  6. 9.0 |   music OMH

    Even the most curmudgeonly critic will find it hard not to raise a smile or breathe a contented sigh, for this is a true antidote to January living as we know it
    Read Review

  7. 9.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    ...in There is Love in You we see one of the last decade’s most early pioneers reminding us all that he’s still just as important as ever
    Read Review

  8. 9.0 |   Clash

    If you love the ambiguous crossover between half-step London sounds and crushed and warped 4/4 peddled by the likes of Martyn, Burial or Joy Orbison, then the love in you will find this album
    Read Review

  9. 8.7 |   Beats Per Minute

    Four Tet’s music is glassy and earthy; it’ll dazzle you with its shiny contours while it humbles you with its firm commitment to subtlety and grounding in humanity
    Read Review

  10. 8.6 |   Pitchfork

    ...it's both heady and physical, subtle but powerful music for thinking and moving or ideally doing both at the same time: It's been a while since a brisk walk through the city sounded this good
    Read Review

  11. 8.0 |   Tiny Mix Tapes

    ...the album is a joy, embracing the idea of dance music, not as a bare idea, but by virtue of having lived in it
    Read Review

  12. 8.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    It’s still far from conventional – ‘Plastic People’ veers towards the mellower side of Aphex Twin – but it’s a long player that you can wallow and immerse yourself in, and let play out to its end
    Read Review

  13. 8.0 |   Blurt

    There Is Love In You stirs and sweeps, its loop-centric tapestries as lively and as affecting as its uncoiling electronic flourishes
    Read Review

  14. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    Has the power to delight someone who has never listened to a Kraftwerk record all the way through
    Read Review

  15. 8.0 |   Pop Matters

    Hebden has yet again created a wonderful space where he can rightfully be called sui generis
    Read Review

  16. 8.0 |   State

    Hebden’s power seems to lie in stringing the listener along as he coaxes us through myriad genres and sounds, never isolating or alienating

  18. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Print edition only

  19. 8.0 |   Rave Magazine

    While sometimes it feels as though Hebden has kept only his lightweight work for himself, There Is Love In You is, nevertheless, an entirely idiosyncratic and beautiful creation
    Read Review

  20. 8.0 |   The Irish Times

    There are stylistic flourishes we haven’t heard from Hebden in a while...But there’s as much newness as familiarity, making this Four Tet’s most accessible work to date
    Read Review

  21. 8.0 |   Evening Standard

    Once again Hebden has managed to be experimental without losing the human touch
    Read Review

  22. 8.0 |   The Digital Fix

    It might disappoint final year fashion students wanting to tap their middle finger in time to the overtly complex rhythms of old, but it’s the most cohesive and enjoyable thing he’s done thus far
    Read Review

  23. 8.0 |   The Observer

    Kieran Hebden has further refined the glistening synthesis of acoustic samples and laptop beats

    ...signals Hebden's return to meticulous melodicism

  28. 6.0 |   Eye Weekly

    This is dance music made for adventurous limbs
    Read Review

  29. 6.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    He sounds comfortable on this album—maybe not quite stretching himself, but at least he’s not wasting our time
    Read Review

  30. 6.0 |   NME

    This LP could have injected some creativity back into 4/4, instead it settles for quaintness
