    Lust Lust Lust, the fuzzed-out, starry-eyed return-to-form by The Raveonettes, takes you there and then kicks you out at sunrise. [Winter 2008, p.94]
  2. These songs don't sound like love songs because they aren't love songs. That the Raveonettes understand why that's an important distinction makes Lust Lust Lust a sleazy pop masterpiece.
  3. Their fourth record, the stunning Lust Lust Lust, retains the Danish duo’s fetish for early pop harmony and surf guitar, not to mention shoe-gaze buzz in their concise, fuzzy bursts of tragic romance.
  4. Wagner and Foo have gone back to the rougher basics--distortion, echo and monastery-choir vocals--of their debut EP, 2002's Whip It On. But the simplicity is deceptive.
  5. Definitely worth a listen, even if you thought you had the group pegged in the past.
  6. The main drawback of Lust Lust Lust is that it might be a little too lo-fi and fuzzy. [Winter 2008, p.84]
  7. It's a narrow frame of reference that The Raveonettes seem likely to stick with; hopefully, on future albums, the songs will get more memorable than this batch.

    Returning to their all-too-familiar noise-pop sound, The Raveonettes have gone Darklands on us and stripped the record down to guitar and Returning to their all-too-familiar noise-pop sound, The Raveonettes have gone Darklands on us and stripped the record down to guitar and sythesized everything else. The album delivers on lovely pop tracks that sound like love songs, but in most cases are deceiving by the singers' gentle voices. In my opinion, their greatest effort yet. Expand

    Perhaps too early to say for certain but after a month with it I'd call this their best album. It is certainly their most accomplished.

    A very good CD. You need to hear these songs LIVE!
