    His impressive mastery of sounds is now matched by the quality of the songs, and overall one would be hard-pressed to find a better, more satisfying electronic dance music album in 2014, or anytime.

    These two tracks ["Feels Real" and "Do It (Right)"] read a bit corny on paper, but Lambkin’s knowledge of genre, song form and structure and how to make music evolve (i.e. filters, not just slapping in new sounds when something gets boring) bundle up the awkwardness with cool to present fresh ink amidst the droves of novice DJ nostalgists.

    On We Got Love, his sophomore LP, the Irish knobturner has managed to produce a coherent album brimming with ideas, styles and guest musicians.

    There’s a nagging sense of the need to develop things further and mesh the mechanics with the human to create a beast that is more than the sum of its parts.

    Although he doesn’t offer the genre anything noticeably new, he’s more than capable to keep the momentum going over a long player.

    Even though the record is irresistible at times, it's also a feedback loop of nostalgia that's creaking as it turns.

    It peaks with the opulent nu-disco of Tempest. [May 2014, p.93]

    Two average tracks out of nine starts to feel like too many and leaves you doubting whether the rest was quite as good as you thought.

    His follow-up to 2010's From The Cradle to the Rave pulses with similar dancefloor rhythm, and again features a diverse roster of guest voices. [Apr 2014, p.119]

    We Got A Love rarely deviates from DFA's tried-and-tested disco-punk template. [Apr 2014, p.81]

    A rather mixed bag of oddball disco tracks.
