Survival Sickness is the first studio album by the (International) Noise Conspiracy, released in 2000.[7][8]

Critical reception[edit]

The Washington Post wrote that "even the Conspiracy's most energetic broadsides seem more well-meaning than incendiary."[1] CMJ New Music Report called the album "astounding," and noted the "nearly flawless thematic progression as a call-to-arms."[9] The Chicago Tribune called it "a truly volatile Molotov cocktail of '60s garage-rock and Stooges-style punk."[10]
