  • Summary: The fourth album for the Danish rock duo was produced with Thomas Troelsen.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 13 out of 16
  2. Negative: 0 out of 16
  1. Yes, the melodies are all bubble-gum lightness, but don’t worry, Raveonettes are still very dark and won’t be making inroads into top-40 radio any time soon.
  2. A pop concoction packed with twangy hooks and dreamy melodies, it sounds like a fantasy fusion of the Phil Spector-produced Ronettes and C86-era indie stars the Primitives.
  3. Darkly funny and strangely beautiful. [Nov 2009, p.111]
  4. Thanks to the production, the performances, and the songs, the Raveonettes have delivered on the renewed promise of "Lust Lust Lust" and made a very good, almost great, noise-pop album.
  5. When things do begin to feel a little too familiar, Control manages to pull clever punches that keep interests piqued.
  6. In and Out of Control is a reined-in Raveonettes album with more differentiation among songs.
  7. 60
    Four albums in, this nourish duo are still unwavering in their approach: Chilly, disturbing lyrics emerge from a dense fog of blissful Spector harmonies and squalling Jesus and Mary Chain surf and strings. Only now, those lyrics are more bizarre.
