"A hugely involving, weirdly moving experience: over the course of its 43 minutes, it variously feels blissful, soothing, profoundly creepy, uplifting and cathartic."The Guardian **** (Album of the Week)
"Marks a subtle shift in Hecker's habitual style, a pivot away from his hazy trademark." - The Observer ****
"The word "immersive" is bandied about a lot, but Hecker's work really is." - Pitchfork (8.2)
"His music is ravishing in a way that transcends method and context. Radically beautiful." - Uncut (8/10)
"A record that’s serene on the surface but with a dark undertow." - MOJO ****
"Wholly absorbing…That you are compelled to stay listening…is proof of this record’s eerie power." - Q ****
"He makes for a turbulent sonic trip that ultimately feels redemptive." - Resident Advisor
"It is clear from Love Streams, with its increased manipulation of vocals and wider palette, that he is becoming braver." - The Wire
"Love Streams is both a masterpiece of contemporary composition and of emotional sensitivity." - The Quietus
