  • Summary: The hard-to-like band's second album of early 2003 was recorded during the same sessions that gave rise to 'So Much Staying Alive and Lovelessness.'
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 5
  2. Negative: 1 out of 5
  1. Rarely is so-called "difficult music" so rewarding, and rarely is it so simple.
  2. Joan of Arc have once more surpassed themselves as artists.
  3. People tend to like Joan of Arc when they play songs, but get all worked up and annoyed when the band stretches out with the experimental stuff. This record is a bunch of the stuff that would have pissed off that latter group of people had the music been bunched in with So Much Staying Alive...
  4. The cache of "weird" songs on Rape Fantasy is better than the tracks collected on Staying Alive.
  5. Painfully pretentious, plodding, self-indulgent drivel. [Jun 2003, p.97]
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 2

    deliciously dark and intense, in rape fantasy and terror sex we trust is more akin to kinsella's friend/enemy project than anything he has yet explored with joan of arc. it is by no coincidence that this album musically resembles some of the 90 day men's work; they contributed to the album. this album an absolute must have.
