6/10 Brett Staff review, 19 March 2009
The ever-amusing ARE Weapons have finally gone and achieved what seemed to be the purpose of their existance by recording with Alan Vega on this single sided 12" from Blast First Petite. In fairness they've provided him with a decent track to groan his graveyard Elvisisms all over on 'See Tha Light'; a slow beat, sci-fi effects and chimey, trebly guitars stuttering all over the place while he pleads incoherantly to be freed from something or other.. Maybe they had to tie him up and torture him to get him to agree to play with them, I dunno. 'War' is a cover of the Edwin Starr song and it's only occasionally as entertaining as it sounds on paper but then paper teams win paper cups as some divvy football manager once said.

8/10 Mk Btt Customer review, 17th April 2009

Definitely a validation playing with the great Alan Vega, but don't let the humorless (see Pitchfork, etc.) lead you to believe that A.R.E. are anything but fantastic.  Start with the early singles like 'NY Muscle' and 'Street Gang' and the downloadable-somewhere 'Peel Session' (which is absolutely the crown jewel of the Weapons very difficult to find/but worth seeking catalog) and judge for yourself.  There three LPs won't disappoint either.  'Don't Be Scared'.
