  • Summary: Legendary 1970s NYC electro-punk duo Suicide, hugely influential on the synth-pop, industrial, and electroclash movements to come in later decades, return with their first new album in ten years.

  1. Positive: 9 out of 15
  2. Negative: 1 out of 15
  1. Possibly their best.... Brave, bleak yet compassionate. [#225, p.77]
  2. 90
    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. 70
    [A] fractiously funky but resolutely glum return. [Dec 2002, p.108]
  5. 70
    Suicide have rounded the edges on their metal machine music and jettisoned some rubbery retroisms. [Nov 2002, p.77]
  6. 60
    The raw, first-take sound of most of these songs is impressive--Suicide remain the most genuinely punk of electronic bands. [#11, p.144]
  7. American Supreme accomplishes little more than tarnishing their chrome-plated punk and sending it on a winding downward spiral.
