    This pared back approach, which lends parts of the record a "dancier" vibe, may not suit all fans of his singular debut. [Jul 2013, p.85]

    It may be a little too low-key for its own good--Four Tet explores similar territory with more urgency--but it's full of dog-eared charm. [Jul 2013, p.104]

    The album was inspired by world travel, but it has a pleasantly isolated feel: a portable home, conjured between headphones.

    Sadly, despite the instrumental samples that appear to have been plucked from all continents (maybe excluding Antarctica), much of the rest of the album is difficult to engage with.

    The surreal strings on "We Work Nights," the doubled percussion on "An English House" and the sultry, repetitive warble on closer "Reprise" give the release a much needed kick, but Half of Where You Live still lacks the strength it needs.
