    Ironically, this patchwork of 12-inch singles is Kieran Hebden's most delectable album-as-album.

    Pink is a triumph and the new high-water mark for one of this generation's finest producers.

    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.

    For the die-hard Four Tet fan who jumps over every release the man has put out, Pink isn't really going to offer much outside of a rather flash piece of packaging that coincidentally happens to store all of his recent tunes in one convenient place. For others though, it's simply going to be another Four Tet release, which is a lot better than a whole lot from everyone else.

    It's confident work, with faith in the power of a few elements. [Oct 2012, p.79]

    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.

    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.
