The album has been met with generally positive reviews. NME gave In Love a 9 out of 10, with writer Eve Barlow claiming that the band are "as rejuvenating as a wash of zesty orange juice over a crushing hangover".[9] The Independent gave the album 4 out of 5 stars, praising Koisser's "intriguing" songwriting that brought "an innovative eye to the age- old business of love through quirky images."[8] Alexis Petridis of The Guardian was not as enthusiastic however, giving the album 2 out of 5 stars, but concluding "Whether there really is anything beyond that – or whether Peace's moment in the spotlight is as short-lived as that of the bands they bring to mind – remains to be seen."[7]
