  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
    A churning, droning, sickly sweet nouveau-electro trip. [Nov 2002, p.94]
  5. 'We Are Science' has a spooky cinematic scope with a dubbed-up, electronic gospel feel for our times.
  6. When these songs keep the pretense to a minimum, her melancholy mood can be affecting. But much of the rest is dreadfully muddy, lacking in both substance and texture.
