  1. That we're still able to observe the funloving side of the band while also getting to see that there's more to them than that is what makes Two Thousand and Ten Injuries such a charmer. That their compositions sound more precisely constructed and flat-out better this time out doesn't hurt either.

    [Love Is All frontwoman Josephine Olausson's] aim is true on the Swedish quintet's third full-length, a fizzy, exhilarating hybrid of bubblegum pop and bratty punk.
  3. Minor grumbles aside, however, Two Thousand And Ten Injuries is a deliriously fun listen, one that manages to suck you into its own little world for half an hour.
  4. Many bands start to lose their way around the time of their third album, but on Two Thousand and Ten Injuries Love Is All sound better than ever and well-positioned to keep making smart, hooky, passionate records for a long time to come.
  5. As the hushed, but bubbly bass and stuttering snare give way to cavernous, shouted outero, Love Is All flaunts its expert capacity for restraint and tension-building--as if we needed more proof of how Love Is All is utterly in control of its pop craft. [Winter 2010, p.64]
  6. Ten Thousand and One Injuries maintains a relatively tepid pace compared to their previous efforts, but Love is All haven’t exactly mellowed either.
  7. Love Is All have turned down the sax, exchanging many of their former bursts of spunk for half an album that’s tighter and more heartbreakingly anthemic, and a remainder that drifts into directionless tedium.
