  1. 8.0 |   Beats Per Minute

    You’re willing to put in the three quarters of an hour that it takes to finish the album, and you’re able to free your mind of any forgone conclusions or suppositions you have, Dive could easily be your favorite record this year

  2. 8.0 |   Prefix

    Tycho is worth any self-respecting electronic fan's time. Seek his music out and he'll greet you with faded memories of past futures. There's little pretension wafting over his analog craft and the melodic tokens he unearths are as iridescent as an oceanic sunset

  3. 8.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    It’s late enough to say this could be the label’s finest release this year, and as strong a return as Hansen could’ve hoped for in all his wild, Bauhaus movement-inspired dreams

  5. 8.0 |   Blurt

    Listened to all at once, Dive is almost too relaxing ... Yet it's a happy, bright trance, not necessarily to be avoided

  8. 7.0 |   Pitchfork

    Dive might not be the most ambitious instrumental record you hear all year, but it almost always sounds good

  9. 6.0 |   Spin

    A pretty and sturdily crafted collection of techno maybe-memories -- hypnagogic pop for a very discerning Ikea shopper
