    Reptilians is equal parts important, fun, and urgent, and it's hard to think of a better combination of attributes for a pop record.

    Starfucker definitely have a gem with Reptilians, and have managed to make a remarkable album from a genre that can become quite stagnant and derivative of itself.

    Reptilians is a batch of competent dance-pop-not as groundbreaking as fans have hoped, not as obnoxious as non-fans may've assumed-overcompensating for all the patience they've tested and the goodwill they squandered on their looping baby-steps back to the Starfucker moniker.
  4. I know the band can write damn good songs and they have proven that before and prove it here, but until they address the main problems (the still heavily reverberated vocals for one) or really venture out into something different (there is life beyond pasting snippets from philosophy lectures) I think history will keep repeating itself for these guys.

    This debut proves equally effervescent. [Apr 2011, p.109]

    As noisy and overwrought as Reptilians is, it's also quite promising--one has to wonder what it would sound like if Starfucker performed the same operation on its own music.

    With no standout tracks, Reptilians just becomes 40 minutes of innocuous, digital background music that's been done before.

    Reptilians is a fun pop dance album, but at the same time is an emotional masterpiece! This was a huge jump from there debut album and am excited to see what this band can accomplish in the future... Collapse
