Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Steve Klinge
Within the opening moments of Relationship of Command, At the Drive-In hit full-speed, with crunching guitars, thrashing drums, and full-throated screams. "Arc Arsenal" is all pent-up emotion and an apt introduction for a band that made their name as an energetic and cathartic live act, touring the emo circuit with groups such as the Get Up Kids. For their third album, At the Drive-In relocated from El Paso, Texas, to Los Angeles, signed to the Beastie Boys' Grand Royal label, and enlisted producer Ross Robinson Korn, Slipknot, Limp Bizkit, who captures their controlled chaos by sharpening the songs' dynamic shifts. With the fervor of someone inciting a revolution, ...

Barnes & Noble - Steve Klinge
Within the opening moments of Relationship of Command, At the Drive-In hit full-speed, with crunching guitars, thrashing drums, and full-throated screams. "Arc Arsenal" is all pent-up emotion and an apt introduction for a band that made their name as an energetic and cathartic live act, touring the emo circuit with groups such as the Get Up Kids. For their third album, At the Drive-In relocated from El Paso, Texas, to Los Angeles, signed to the Beastie Boys' Grand Royal label, and enlisted producer Ross Robinson Korn, Slipknot, Limp Bizkit, who captures their controlled chaos by sharpening the songs' dynamic shifts. With the fervor of someone inciting a revolution, vocalist Cedric Bixler rants in non sequitur declamations "Yes, this is a campaign slogan/Entrails in the cargo bay", and it's no wonder that Iggy Pop seems right at home duetting on "Rolodex Propaganda": Detroit's Stooges and MC5 are grandfathers of ATDI's agit-rock. Occasionally, though, the mayhem subsides. A melancholy piano anchors the spoken-word tale "Invalid Litter Dept.," and on "Pattern Against User," the clotted guitar chords cede to an interlude of interlocking melodic lines. Even when the needles aren't in the red, Relationship of Command is intense, and intensely satisfying.
All Music Guide - Blake Butler
Welcome to the breath-robbing, heart-pounding Relationship of Command, an album many have been waiting for with red-faced anticipation since their last EP, the brilliant Vaya. On this 11-track masterpiece, so full of adrenaline and swarming moods, ATDI has created one of the most infecting and mind-blowing rock albums in a long time. While most of the tracks are of the more aggressive edge, this is undeniably the band's most focused and well put together and, therefore, best all-around album yet. "Quarantined" and "Sleepwalk Capsules" alone make this album worth purchasing: This music is seamless and inspiring. Electronic movements meshed into "Enfilade" stretch the texture of the album further, into the unique backup vocals of Iggy Pop on "Rolodex Propaganda." Amidst all the rock, there is the undeniably unique edge about ATDI's sound, something that has permeated through their music from the "Hell Paso" 7." Beautiful vocals bursting passion in quirky, abstract, and often thrilling lyrics, youthful energy, driving melodies, and a sense of beyond-the-moment urgency. Moving from Relentless to Grand Royal, as well as to the notorious and mostly infamous producer Ross Robinson, has not killed the band's spirit or sound, as many loyal fans feared it would in the pattern of Jawbreaker, Jawbox, among others. If anything, it has allowed the band to push themselves to new limits, to fulfill what they have been working for relentlessly for so long. This is not a band that could ever be insincere. You can see it in their eyes and feel it in their music and work ethic. ATDI is one of the saviors of true emotional straight-up rock!
Entertainment Weekly - Brian M. Raftery
At times, ferociously intense, other times stirring, it never fails to excite.
