A.V. Club

Where Black And White sagged in spots, Lex is a snug, stimulating fit.

With Lex Hives they not only add further credence to their reputation, they also spit in the respective faces of their many lesser contemporaries.

If you’re a stickler for this review business, let it be said that ‘Lex Hives’ is amazing

Beats Per Minute

As a whole, Lex Hives serves the same purpose as just about every Hives album thus far: dance, let yourself go, and have a good time

Paste

Much like the band’s catalog, this record apes everyone from AC/DC to The Stooges with exuberant aplomb.

Consequence of Sound

.. a pretty fun romp of all the things that make The Hives so loveable.

Drowned in Sound

Lex Hives sadly conforms to the patchy-at-best trajectory of the band's major label releases
