Rolling Stone - p.883 stars out of 5 -- "Ronson helped the Lips brighten up their sound while keeping it authentically creepy....It freaks you out, but in the best possible way."
Spin - p.96"Frayed-nerve vocalists Jared Swilley and Cole Alexander show new composure...the band's songwriting skills are plain as day."
Uncut - p.794 stars out of 5 -- "Their sixth sees Mark Ronson step in as producer....He's given this tough, roughly energetic band focus and finesse."
CMJ"The band's chaos and fuzzy guitar sound are still there, but they are controlled; when they're finally unleashed, the change in presence is suddenly incredible appreciated."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.1064 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's nigh on impossible not to love the Theremin-laden rush of 'Bone Marrow' or the swinging, raucous punk of 'Family Tree'. Wild abandon never sounded so inviting."
Paste (magazine) - "[T]he record punches through with hook after hook of infectious punk rock....ARABIA MOUNTAIN not only emerges as the Lips' best-sounding record, but arguably their finest album to date."
