Critical reception

Reviews for the album were generally favorable. According to Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album has received a score of 66, based on 10 reviews.[2]

Digital Spy gave the album a very positive review and rewarded it a 4/5 star rating.[3] The Los Angeles Times gave the album 3/5, saying "Guetta is at his best (and his most commercial) when he's equipped with a melody as chewy as his beats."[4] Ginger Clemens of Billboard calls it an effortless integration off catchy dance beats with expressive vocals, turning out Top 40-friendly songs while remaining true to dance club culture.[5] Allmusic: Even if everything seems built for the 12" format and then landed on an album anyway, Guetta's fans get all the well-done house music they desire, and then some.[6] musicOMH: He can doubtless get a party started every bit as effectively as either of those two [Paul van Dyk & Diplo] but, on this record at least, in dance terms he finds himself rather falling between two stools as he enlarges the walls of his big tent.[7] Caroline Sullivan of The Guardian gave One Love 3 out of 5 stars calling many of the songs enjoyable while favoring "Estelle's tender performance of the title track deserves special mention" and mentioning that "It feels like a series of tracks rather than a fully realised long-player."[8] NOW Magazine calls "One Love" surprisingly deep.[9] Observer Music Monthly calls it "the sound of the summer! If summer for you means a fake tan and drinking WKD for a week in the Med with the likes of Kelly Rowland and Will.I.Am popping up as guests with your fave."
