Upon its release, Love Is Here received some critical acclaim. At Metacritic, which assigns a weighted average score out of 100 to reviews and ratings from mainstream critics, the album received a metascore of 72, based on 19 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews."
Q listed Love Is Here as one of the best 50 albums of 2001, while NME rated it as the fifth best album of the year.
The album also includes a hidden track at 13:35 of the track "Coming Down," consisting of under a minute of humming from the band members. The humming is background accompaniment for the song "Coming Down", but an alternate take.
The song "Way to Fall" is played during the ending credits of the 2004 video game Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. Director Hideo Kojima hand-picked the song for the game's soundtrack, apparently having discovered the song by accident while looking for another song.
