  • Summary: The mellow UK electronic outfit (who have been compared to artists such as Morcheeba and Air) follows up 2001 debut 'Simple Things' with this 11-track effort.

  1. A sublime collection that surpasses its predecessor. [Apr 2004, p.121]
  2. 80
    Occasionally teetering on the verge of too precious, the heavy mood and lush production are too much (and too nice) to resist. [Apr 2004, p.87]
  3. Fans of Simple Things, Zero 7's debut effort, won't hear anything new or different, but considering that Falls makes for lovely background music, it should satisfy those fans just fine.
  4. 70
    A bedroom soundtrack filled with seductive surprises. [#6, p.87]
  5. 70
    For computer music, it's all astoundingly warm. [Apr 2004, p.139]
  6. When it Falls, while not a masterpiece, is a nice album which will likely appeal to a very broad fan base.
  7. Perhaps spurred by the ease with which the Boring Solo has been grafted on to their chosen template, When It Falls finds Zero 7 expanding their horizons and going on to be boring in other areas.
