    Probably the best electronic release of the decade. Hebden transports the organic sounds of his earlier folktronica works into a more danceable arena, filling the empty space with colourful synthesizers and melodious vocal samples. Every song defines its own mood, and every single one of them evolves gradually into something new as time passes.

It has the Four Tet signature all over it. That can't be a bad thing. Expand

    Four Tet's poppiest LP yet! The electronica man returns with a very catchy collection of song. pitch shifted vocals, beeps and bleeps, synths and some amazing samples. Considering this is a late review this is a great starting point for people who aren't familiar with Four Tet's work. Highly recommend such tracks as 'Angel Echoes' and 'Circling'. Truly an amazing album. 10/10

    This album is a stunning synthesis of Kieran Hebdan's years spent under the tutelage of Steve Reid. It is unapologetic in its strive for movement and rhythm yet does not abuse the listeners sensibilities with an assault of discordant noise. It is a shining example of accessible experimentalist.

  1. It’s a theme that recurs throughout the record, and, indeed, that defines the Four Tet canon: mesmeric, melody-laden music, with varying degrees of difficulty. There is Love in You should be a fine introductory course.
  2. If you love the ambiguous crossover between half-step London sounds and crushed and warped 4/4 peddled by the likes of Martyn, Burial or Joy Orbison, then the love in you will find this album.
  3. In There is Love in You we see one of the last decade’s most early pioneers reminding us all that he’s still just as important as ever.
