The fierce New York rockers who make up A.R.E. Weapons bludgeon one with the sounds of the underbelly of their city throughout their debut. The trio creates a stark, feverish aural assaults with snatches of rock, hip-hop, punkish oaths, and scolding lyrics bellowed over heart-mimicking dance hall beats. A.R.E. Weapons pick up where Lou Reed's walk on the wild side left off in the '70s, but deliver their music with more grit and aggression; think Suicide forced through a rusty blender. This is art rock at its nadir and it sounds just like the future.
