  1. The experimentation falls flat in places, but it's still exhilarating to hear something as stock as garage-rock fed through the Play-Doh Fun Factory of Collins' deranged brain.

    We have You Surrounded is a terrific accessible hard-rock album deserving more than cult attention. [Apr 2008, p.94]
  3. 80
    We Have You Surrounded has more variety than 2003's excellent "Dangerous Magical Noise." [May 2008, p.94]
  4. 80
    A giddy chaos of fuzz-noise and thundering drums ensures these sclectic experiments still sound like no one else but The dirtbombs. [May 2008, p.114]
  5. Maybe Mick Collins can't save the world, but he's got plenty of worthwhile things to say on this album, and his global angst beats Bono's for sheer entertainment value any day of the week.
  6. They're moments when, perhaps more so than on any previous record, The Dirtbombs sound like a band of five musicians with distinct input, rather than the many arms of Mick.
  7. The album may have neen best served as an EP; it's an uneven mix of energetic jams and unfocused duds. [May 2008, p.132]
