  1. Nobody else sounds like Xiu Xiu, and they've made themselves even more singular on this album.
  2. Women as Lovers reveals itself as a nifty little album.
  3. Women As Lovers is proof positive that if navel gazing was an extreme sport, Xiu Xiu would be its leading practitioners, wielding an earnest approach which, while occasionally proving scary and even moving, borders heavy-handedness and rapidly becomes oppressive.
