  2. Negative: 1 out of 15
  1. The Wire
    Possibly their best.... Brave, bleak yet compassionate. [#225, p.77]
  2. Uncut
    This is audaciously modern in its textural absorption of outre sounds from the 21st-century dance underground. [Dec 2002, p.136]
  3. American Supreme proves that Suicide can reach backward and still remain ahead of the pack.
  4. An accomplished release that attests to their enduringly unique sound and vision.
  5. Some of it sounds remarkably sedate and conventional ("Televised Executions," "American Mean") while other tracks ("Beggin' For Miracles") ramble psychotically into the good night of avant-garde minimalism.
  6. Alternative Press
    Despite its relative palatability, compared with their earlier work, this is a hard album to like--and that's what makes it good. [Jan 2003, p.102]
  7. American Supreme, even at its most unlistenable and monotonous, still makes its point.
  8. Mixer
    Suicide have rounded the edges on their metal machine music and jettisoned some rubbery retroisms. [Nov 2002, p.77]
  9. Mojo
    [A] fractiously funky but resolutely glum return. [Dec 2002, p.108]
