US Release date
  1. 10.0 |   Time Out

    One of the most glorious and addictive albums of the year
    Read Review

  2. 10.0 |   The Guardian

    This is rich, strange, endlessly fascinating music: a subtle, beautiful triumph
    Read Review

  3. 9.0 |   musicOMH

    Deftly captures various stages of love’s cycle. With added synths
    Read Review

  4. 9.0 |   NME

    Thrilling fourth album ties together over a decade's worth of sonic kicks
    Read Review

  5. 9.0 |   Earbuddy

    Has an underlying introspection that gives both Snaith and the listener time to reflect on the history of dance music, life and what makes music so powerful in times of desperatio
    Read Review

  6. 9.0 |   The Music

    A pleasure from start to finish
    Read Review

  7. 9.0 |   Uncut

    Snaith has perfected his recipe for bite-sized psychedelia. Print edition only

  8. 9.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    It is uplifting, and it is wholly life-affirming. If you need Caribou to hoist you out the blue-tinged doldrums, he's here. If you just want a brief, electric moment of blood-pulse, adrenaline-hackle energy to feel alive, he's here. If you want to dance your fucking legs off, he's still here

  9. 8.6 |   Pitchfork

    It’s hard work, and it’s not always easy, but it pays remarkable and lasting dividends
    Read Review

  10. 8.5 |   Crack

    Another modern-day classic to add to Caribou’s formidable catalogue
    Read Review

  11. 8.4 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    Our Love reveals itself as quite the complicated record; nothing ever stays still for very long, whether that’s Snaith’s serpentine compositions or his lyrics, so often cast in shadows as they are triumphantly lit up
    Read Review

  12. 8.3 |   Consequence Of Sound

    It’s rich in slow-burning ambiguity, and it may be vibrant and clean, but it doesn’t entice dialogue quite the same way his past albums have
    Read Review

  13. 8.0 |   All Music

    Stands as the most straightforwardly danceable Caribou album to date
    Read Review

  14. 8.0 |   The 405

    Stripped of complex layers and imbued with soul
    Read Review

  15. 8.0 |   The Irish Times

    Even with the proliferation of emotion and lyrical sensitivity, Snaith never loses sight of what he presumably set out to do: get the masses moving
    Read Review

  16. 8.0 |   PopMatters

    Snaith has created one of the most enjoyable, crowd pleasing records of the year
    Read Review

  17. 8.0 |   Beardfood

    Dance music for a private party rather than the club, spin this with your loved ones and feel the connection
    Read Review

  18. 8.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    Built to last, ‘Our Love’ is another Caribou album set for repeat
    Read Review

  19. 8.0 |   Fact

    Each track says something different, but with his honest subject matter and his unique arrangements constantly in focus, Snaith never loses his way
    Read Review

  20. 8.0 |   DIY

    Caribou has successfully managed to see past sense, instead opting with an instinct that tends to produce dazzling results
    Read Review

  21. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Dan Snaith has plunged ever deeper into the digital bubblebath. Print edition only

  22. 8.0 |   Q

    This beautiful, open-hearted album explores every one of its title's implications, embracing both the blessed and the lost in its generous embrace. Print edition only

  23. 8.0 |   The Quietus

    His music never quite fits into an expected box, but exists in its own space
    Read Review

  24. 8.0 |   Clash

    A record that feels distinctly his own, accessible yet containing minute touches that you’ll need to listen to many times to appreciate
    Read Review

  25. 8.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Lacks the element of surprise that Swim had, but still holds in abundance all the hallmarks of a master: so rich, so textured and despite being predominantly electronic, so human
    Read Review

  26. 8.0 |   The Arts Desk

    There's a ton of electronic and psychedelic tics and tricks that resonate with immense familiarity
    Read Review

  27. 8.0 |   Evening Standard

    He’ll make you dance, and possibly shed a tear while doing so
    Read Review

  28. 8.0 |   The FT

    Transcendence is the point rather than lust, an emphasis that gives the album a polite air
    Read Review

  29. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    One of the most eminently playable and rewarding electronic albums of 2014
    Read Review

  30. 8.0 |   The Observer

    The fine line between euphoria and melancholy is negotiated brilliantly on tracks such as Can’t Do Without You
    Read Review

  31. 7.3 |   Paste Magazine

    Not everyone will be pleased, but those hooked on Swim will be thrilled
    Read Review

  32. 6.7 |   Pretty Much Amazing

    One of Snaith’s least cohesive and affecting full-lengths, even as it provides us with some of his strongest individual tracks to date
    Read Review

  33. 6.0 |   Under The Radar

    For all its intriguing flourishes, it's hard not to think of Our Love as a slightly limp but occasionally brilliant follow-up
    Read Review

  34. 6.0 |   God Is In The TV

    The production is slick and the tracks make you dance, but after the breakthrough success of Swim and the filthiness of the Jiaolong this feels a bit flat
    Read Review

  35. 6.0 |   The List

    Would benefit from just one song as sure and determined of direction as Swim’s addictive centrepiece ‘Leave House’
    Read Review

  36. 6.0 |   The Skinny

    Alt-dance cuts rub shoulders with half-formed song ideas which, at times, struggle to take off
    Read Review

  37. 5.0 |   Slant Magazine

    An uncharacteristically uneven effort from a generally consistent artist
