There Is Love in You received universal acclaim from music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 82, based on 30 reviews. [6] John Bush of AllMusic described There Is Love in You as "a reset album, one where Hebden pares his music down to the essentials" and "the most natural he's sounded on record in years", with "the spartan precision of Philip Glass but also, surprisingly, the warmth and vitality of classic Cluster as well." [7] Chris Martins of The A.V. Club noted that the album continued in the "smoother" musical direction of Hebden's EP Ringer , "and to great effect—if this isn’t the best Four Tet record yet, it's certainly a fresh face for Hebden." [8] Slant Magazine 's Matthew Cole praised There Is Love in You as "his most inviting and accessible set of songs to date", [17] while Q 's Robin Turner wrote that the album "brims with a playful sense of wonder." [14]

Mark Richardson of Pitchfork wrote that There Is Love in You "always has just enough going on to pull you back in any time you feel like relegating it to the background" and "works best taken whole, rather than broken into individual tracks". [13] Ben Thompson of The Observer felt that the album "captures all that was special about dance music's mid-90s heyday". [12] In a mixed review, NME 's Louise Brailey felt that There Is Love in You peaks early with "Love Cry", and that Four Tet "fails to move forward on a nevertheless lovely seventh album". [11] Robert Christgau, in his Consumer Guide column for MSN Music , gave the album a one-star honorable mention rating, indicating "a worthy effort consumers attuned to its overriding aesthetic or individual vision may well like". [18] [19]

Club at number 24, [24] NME at number 45, [25] and Pitchfork at number 27.
