Quick Review (LP): There Is Love In You by Four Tet

My Rating: B+

Best Tracks: “Plastic People”, “Circling”

Kieran Hebden’s strangely accessible found sound compositions are best when they contain a twinge of darkness and/or sadness, and that’s the case with the two best tracks here, “Plastic People” and “Circling.” Furthermore, he gets the soul-tronica thing right with the lead-off “Angel Echoes”, and “This Unfolds” recalls the lovely little dreamscape “Slow Jam” from his early sensation Rounds. I can’t quite say that this is one of the best of the year, because I don’t see him making a huge leap forward, but it’s still great stuff from a guy who has found his niche. Highly recommended, although if its your first time with Four Tet, you should really check out Rounds first.
