  1. 90
    This is the album of the year.
  2. Entertainment Weekly
    83
    Mostly, this stuff is great for a few cheap laughs. [4 Apr 2003, p.101]
  3. Uncut
    80
    The album doesn't just bludgeon. There is an attention to detail, an appreciation of dynamics at work. [May 2003, p.108]
  4. Spin
    75
    Over blotto new-wave/industrial beats, they party hard and get lost on the way home. [May 2003, p.116]
  5. This debut is pretty good, but don't be surprised if you overhear some twunt proclaiming "A.R.E Weapons are so 2001 daaaaling" anytime in the next couple of months.
  6. Mojo
    70
    These 10 tracks positively bristle with feral, street fighter 'tude. [May 2003, p.97]
  7. A.R.E. Weapons is one of the most interesting records ever to use disco electrobeats and synth washes for rock'n'roll effect.
