  1. Oct 24, 2012
    Ironically, this patchwork of 12-inch singles is Kieran Hebden's most delectable album-as-album.
  2. Oct 12, 2012
    Pink is a triumph and the new high-water mark for one of this generation's finest producers.
  3. Oct 12, 2012
    While Pink should not be conflated with a proper follow-up to There Is Love in You, even as a singles comp it suggests that the undergrad producer circa Rounds is now post-doctorate, and Four Tet is capable of going deeper and expanding higher than almost anyone else out there.
  4. Oct 12, 2012
    Pink sits in between: not sonically and melodically rich enough to be digested with the bedroom fervour of, say, Rounds, but somehow not fully metamorphosed into whatever new form Hebden is pushing towards. Nobody's doubting the man's incredible skill as a producer, and the delicacy, intelligence and maturity of his ideas. But here, alchemy isn't quite achieved.

    It's confident work, with faith in the power of a few elements. [Oct 2012, p.79]
  6. Oct 24, 2012
    There's a sense that Pink is somehow serious, utilitarian, workmanlike, that while the tracks brought together here may work in isolation and on dancefloors, they're not as suited to indulgently solipsistic listening as previous Four Tet records.
  7. Oct 12, 2012
    There is nothing particularly bad or amateurish about Pink, but it doesn't stand up to the vivid, beautiful sonic worlds Hebden has been creating for more than a decade... Unfortunately, Pink ends up feeling predictable, dated, and yes, kind of retro.
