  1. 9.0 |   The Music

    A booster for anyone who feels that Daft Punk are no longer ‘fabulous’ enough for their needs, It’s Album Time has been well worth the wait

  2. 9.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    It was always expected of him to come up with something pretty extraordinary for his debut. Still, to pull it off with such vigour is a pretty impressive feat

  3. 9.0 |   Crack

    Witty, good-natured, disco-indebted fun
    Read Review

  4. 9.0 |   The 405

  5. 9.0 |   music OMH

    This summer will be pockmarked with those having a good time, and those having a Terje time. It’s obvious which group you’ll want to hitch your wagon to

  6. 8.8 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    Terje’s cocky, frisky songwriting skills shine, and It’s Album Time easily clears the high bar the producer set for himself through his remixes and EPs

  7. 8.7 |   Pitchfork

    The music feels effortless, gliding from Henry Mancini-esque detective jazz to bouncy, Stevie Wonder funk like breeze blowing through the waffle weave of a leisure suit

  10. 8.0 |   Q

    The self-indulgence is never at the expense of the music. Print edition only

  11. 8.0 |   Under The Radar

    The unbridled wave of fun that it rides in on makes it one of the most surprising and indispensable records of 2014

  12. 8.0 |   Paste Magazine

    His debut may have taken a decade to gestate, but we’ll probably still be unpacking its innovative grooves in another
    Read Review

  13. 8.0 |   NME

    Despite its apparent desperation to be considered a piece of fluff and nonsense, Terje's infectious electronic pop beds itself deep in the brain
    Read Review

  14. 8.0 |   Fact

    An impressively balanced and varied record. It’s frequently excellent, and entertaining even when it feels like it’s gone astray
    Read Review

  15. 8.0 |   Earbuddy

    Meticulous and innovative, it’s amazing just how much fun he appears to be having while creating a body of work which appears so carefully assembled
    Read Review

  16. 8.0 |   The Observer

    If you fell out of love with dance music at the end of the 1990s, this may be the record to get you back in front of the big speakers
    Read Review

  17. 8.0 |   Slant Magazine

    Terje, right down to the artwork that graces his releases, positions himself as a jester DJ, one who turns the presumptuousness of his nom de plume "tribute" back in on himself
    Read Review

  18. 8.0 |   DIY

    An album of ebullient joy that shows Todd Terje has that all too rare ability to both mesmerise and confound
    Read Review

  19. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Dance albums are rarely this fresh, distinctive and evolved. Print edition only

  20. 8.0 |   Clash

    It’s album time, and Terje feels epic
    Read Review

  21. 7.0 |   Uncut

    Fun for all the family. Print edition only

  22. 7.0 |   The Quietus

    At points it's really rather wonderful; it's just not quite the wall-to-wall fruity bangers one probably expected
    Read Review

  23. 6.0 |   Beardfood

    Admirable production; very slick, just slightly dull
    Read Review

  24. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    Terje is clearly at his best when he sticks to the grooves and embellishes them with a fresh, shimmering sense of pace and purpose

  25. 6.0 |   The FT

    Space-age synths and Latin exotica stir fantasy in the dance music producer’s debut album
    Read Review

  26. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    It's taken Todd Terje a full decade to make his debut album, and to some extent it's worth the wait – but he does like to make things hard for himself
    Read Review

  27. 6.0 |   All Music

    Terje should set aside the experiments and just focus on making sleek and shiny electro-disco tracks; the rest only gets in the way of a good time
    Read Review

  28. 5.0 |   PopMatters

    It’s Album Time is a great casual listen, but it’s obvious from its highlights that Terje is capable of even greater highs
