  1. Make no mistake, 'Don't Be Afraid Of Love' is so much more ambitious and downright joyful than we had any right to expect that it's a flooring jolt to the system long after the first listen.
  2. Q Magazine

    Slick samples and buoyant melodies are in, dissonant atmospherics pretty much out. [Feb 2002, p.111]
  3. If there's one downside to Don't Be Afraid of Love it's that the record is a bit schizophrenic, as the jump from style to style is bumpy at times.
  4. Uncut
    70
    It successfully pins down black American sources, though it's occasionally marred by dated production. [Mar 2002, p.97]
  5. The Lo-Fi's are still operating more than competently, but this time round they're not likely to blow any minds.
  6. Alternative Press
    70
    The U.K.'s Lo Fidelity Allstars are having the genre-smashing time of their lives. [Apr 2002, p.78]
  7. There's a heavy, unmistakably classic funk groove to much of the material here.

    Some gems but some real garbage as well.
