  • Summary: The fifth album from Kieran Hebden is his first full-length release in five years.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 27 out of 30
  2. Negative: 0 out of 30
  1. Less ambient and more grounded than the preceding tracks, it's the one song on the album you wouldn't want to hear at the party; rather, it's a subtle, evocative slow-burner best saved for the cool air and the long walk home.
  2. There Is Love in You comes off largely as an effortless work, content to just gently glow in its own hazy bliss.
  3. 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.
  4. If the term “ambient house” hadn’t already been taken by the Orb in the late 80s, it would be a good way to describe this; we’ll just call it really good stoner dance music instead.

    With the release of this new album, There Is Love In You, he's shown his versatility in dancefloor culture while remaining true to his own soundscapes. The result of this new venture may be the most satisfying Four Tet experience since 2003's release of "Rounds."
  6. There is Love in You renders "Ringer" primer, posits itself as perfect solution to messy experimentation, and while it’s hard to find the divisiveness in that, it’s also hard to be truly moved.
  7. The result's a bit half-baked, which is disappointing when you know Hebden's capable of far more spirited adventures in sound.

    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 Expand
