CRITIC REVIEWS

PopMatters

If you share their general outlook, this album will be one of the best medicines leisure can buy for temporary relief from contemporary life.

Consequence of Sound

The Black Lips don’t give up their carefree, hell-raising lyrics and vibes but offer a tighter and shinier product with Arabia.

Pitchfork

Arabia Mountain's chiseled production and considerably tighter songcraft provides a better forum for showcasing the band's subversive sense of humor.

No Ripcord

It’s a big step up from their last record, showcasing a more focused band than ever before.

The band may be at the peak of their powers but it’s almost a shame to see all the mystery drained away.

There's some super catcht and fun tracks on this thing, but unfortunately I can't say that about all of them. Still, if you wanna listen to some fun garage rock, look no further.
