  1. We Are Science sees Dot Allison going beyond even the highs of One Dove and crafting an accessible, evocative masterpiece that consistently surprises and thrills.
  2. We Are Science is striking, very bold, and very sexy.
  3. 80
    Her best record yet. [Jun 2002, p.107]
  4. 70
    We Are Science is strikingly gorgeous and powerful. It's also just a little bit cheesy (but in a good way), as though you were watching Patsy Kensit star in Breaking The Waves.
  5. 70
    Not a record for those prone to depression, but a varied, substantial and intriguing one. [June 2002, p.112]
  6. 40
    She's a ghost in the machine; unfortunately, the machine is an Atari 2600. [#57, p.80]
