    It's 12 tracks of standard Indie rock that could have been put out by any band. To be fair ,there are some very good songs on this but nothing mindblowing (although I do really like It's a Hit). I've found its the kind of record you'd mildly enjoy but won't play very often. The style is limited - not much variation across the songs. Just fell short of an extra mark for me.

  1. Despite undeniable similarities to other bands that arrived at this party earlier, this album lacks pretension and self-importance. [21 Jan 2006]
  2. By no means have We Are Scientists made a great record, but it shows enough promise to make us believe that it might just be possible in the future.
  3. We Are Scientists come off well in being both snide and playful. Finding that balance is what makes With Love and Squalor a solid debut.
