AllMusic Review by

Released as a double 7" vinyl package a few months after Soul Kiss came out (and notably different from the U.K. single, lead track aside), True Love Will Find You is a great addition to that album, not least because of the band's astute choice of initial song. A cover of a Daniel Johnston tune, the title track becomes a perfectly happy, utterly sweet, and sparkling psych zone of a song, with keyboards mostly leading the way with a bit of guitar around the corners, and Sonic's singing is some of his warmest ever. The remaining cuts cover an odd variety of ground, starting with "Taste the Ozone," a drifting wash of backward guitar snippets and other similar cut-ups blended into an attractive whole. "Don't Go (Please Stay)," originally surfacing in instrumental form twice on the How You Satisfy Me single, gets slight but audible vocals over the steady guitar loop and ocean wave-sample rhythm of the song. A combined reprise of Soul Kiss' "Drunk Suite/Quicksilver Glide Divine" concludes things on an appropriately spacy note.
