  1. A radical -- but successful -- departure, We're Animals might have slightly fewer instantly memorable songs than In My Mind All the Time, but it shows that Numbers are continuing to develop and experiment in ways that make this album exciting in a completely different way than their previous work.
  2. New Musical Express (NME)
    Covers all the same ground as albums by Le Tigre, Liars and The Rogers Sisters in the space of one spectacular 45-minute burst. [12 Nov 2005, p.45]
  3. With twice as much content as usual and Numbers working out their heaviest dose of lo-fi drone rock, this is their best release to date.
  4. We're Animals may not be as mind-boggling as Numbers' 2004 release, In My Mind All the Time, but it merges elements of the precursors to the new wave/post-punk movements with a psychedelic ambiance.
  5. On the Moog axis of pop, they’re skewing less towards Six Finger Satellite and more towards an asymmetrical version of the Rentals.
  6. Mojo
    Imagine Deerhoof without the jazzcore twist'n'turn or Stereolab with extra no-wave muscle and groove. [Jan 2006, p.126]
  7. Numbers tout themselves as a dance-punk outfit, but they won’t get you on the dance floor anytime soon.

    Gawd, please tell me why bands like this remain on the fringe and dumbasses like Nickelback get worshipped worldwide? Am I dead?
