  1. Under The Radar

    The main drawback of Lust Lust Lust is that it might be a little too lo-fi and fuzzy. [Winter 2008, p.84]

    Lust Lust Lust is an accomplished set. [Jan 2008, p.109]
  3. Already dated, The Raveonettes 3-D thrills are temporarily diverting, but ultimately provide only the illusion of depth.
  4. It’s a limited palette to be sure, but they do it well. However, cutting out a few songs would have made a stronger statement if they’re going to follow such a tight formula and narrow range of influences.
  5. Uncut
    60
    The post-coital twang of 'Aly, Walk With Me' and 'Lust' are enough to arouse even the most jaded trash-rock fetishist. [Dec 2008, p.101]
  6. 50
    Overall, the tracks range from overserious and plodding to cloying and jumpy.
  7. Press down on the ambiguities of Lust Lust Lust as much as you want, and you’ll still be trapped in a world of surfaces.
  8. Mojo

    Despite its promising title, Lust Lust Lust is mighty forlorn. Or, optimistically, transitional. [Dec 2007, p.100]

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

    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.
