Critical reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
SourceRating
AllMusic4/5 stars[1]
Uncut4/5 stars[2]

In its review of the 2003 reissue, Uncut magazine called it "the starting point for the French dance movement, and therefore one of that decade's most important records. Yet the spaces its 10 tracks inhabit are far darker than anything Daft Punk or Air have achieved."[2] Keith Farley of AllMusic called it a "solid LP of retro-disco".[1]

Legacy[edit]

Pansoul placed at number 59 in NME's list of "100 Lost Albums You Need to Know".[3] Pansoul was placed at number 10 in Spin magazine's list of the twenty best albums released by record label Astralwerks, in which it was called "the most important album in French house".[4]
