  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. Uncut
    80
    Her best record yet. [Jun 2002, p.107]
  3. We Are Science is striking, very bold, and very sexy.
  4. Resonance
    80
    Her breakthrough record. [#36, p.53]
  5. After the limp meandering of Afterglow, We Are Science is unquestionably a leap in the right direction.
  6. 70
    We Are Science is strikingly gorgeous and powerful. It's also just a little bit cheesy (but in a good way), as though you were watching Patsy Kensit star in Breaking The Waves.
  7. Mojo
    70
    Not a record for those prone to depression, but a varied, substantial and intriguing one. [June 2002, p.112]
  8. Urb
    70
    A churning, droning, sickly sweet nouveau-electro trip. [Nov 2002, p.94]
  9. 'We Are Science' has a spooky cinematic scope with a dubbed-up, electronic gospel feel for our times.
  10. Q Magazine
    60
    A startling fusion of ethereal singing with churning, computer-generated beats and ambience. [June 2002, p.110]
  11. Mixer
    50
    A hit-and-miss release. [Nov 2002, p.80]
  12. Blender
    40
    It's highly clinical, and Allison is as remote as ever. [#11, p.124]
  13. Magnet
    40
    She's a ghost in the machine; unfortunately, the machine is an Atari 2600. [#57, p.80]
  14. 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.
