Prior to its release, the album was reported to be "more approachable or communicative on a basic human level" than anything else the band has released.

Women As Lovers marries the ancient with the futuristic, each in all their beauty and terror. Traditional gongs collide with a rat's nest of computerized layering.

But with Xiu Xiu's Jamie Stewart everything spills out unmediated and mucky. In this light, "Under Pressure" is an apt cover choice, as the whole album conveys the sense of something about to boil over. With homely, impassioned vocals by Michael Gira, and the song's slick iconic bassline contrasted by a ragged interpretation of its arrangement, it takes on an air of desperation.

Performer – Caralee McElroy, Ches Smith, Devin Hoff, Jamie Stewart (2). Producer – Fallings Out Brose. Recorded By – Shawn "Rough Daddy Sparks" Porter. KRS 484. Xiu Xiu. Women As Lovers ‎(CD, Album).

No other Xiu Xiu album has ever been more approachable or communicative on a basic human level. It's a beautiful thing when a band goes out on a limb to make its most personal and strangest work.
