  1. The new album may be very No Wave and avant-garde influenced but it is a truly original record.
  2. Uncut
    80
    The band's trademark punky abrasiveness and arty dissonance now serve a more dancefloor-friendly dynamic. [Nov 2006, p.106]
  3. 'Nightlife' is a record that demands to be heard, for not only is it Erase Errata's best album yet, but also one of the finest to emerge from the leftfield this year.
  4. The twelve songs of Nightlife rattle by the listener with alarming speed, and at only thirty minutes long the record seems to be over just as soon as its begun.
  5. It still cuts, just not quite as deep.
  6. Under The Radar
    70
    Vibrant songs backed by a relevant message and trimmed of any gristle and fat of embellishment. [Summer 2006]
  7. Spin
    40
    Ultimately these would-be activists end up with more nervous bark than bite. [Aug 2006, p.77]
