  • Summary: The third U.S. release for the eclectic Amsterdam-based duo (following 2001's import-only release 'Sound Shopping') contains 14 equally eclectic tunes, including highlights "Dirty Robot" and "5th Dimension."

  1. Arling & Cameron continue to cook up a unique and effervescent blend of European electro pop and future/retro lounge exotica all sprinkled with a computer-calculated dose of kitsch.
  2. Shredding Paper
    70
    The first half of the CD starts off with a bang and then goes through a louge and soundtrack-like transition. [#11]
  3. Uncut
    70
    Continues their quest to reunite as many of the myriad splinters of pop music on each track as possible. [Sep 2001, p.87]
  4. Alternative Press
    70
    Bubblegum electronica with enough experimentation to keep things interesting. [Oct 2001, p.86]
  5. If "We Are A&C" was the album's low point, the album would be in great shape -- but there are a few half-hearted tracks that stake a more legitimate claim to that dubious honor.
  6. Unlike most electronica We Are A & C is song driven rather than a collection of grooves and noises stitched together, and therein lies its timeless pop appeal.
