AllMusic Review by

This 12" retools Shriekback's unexpected hit single with mixed results. One the one hand, it blunts the song's attack with an extended intro and plays up one of its weak points -- the painfully shrill backing vocals. The most interesting thing about it is that it demonstrates the song's thematic connection to Apocalypse Now with a spoken sample from Marlon Brando. The B side -- a live version of "Suck," one of Jam Science's lesser moments -- seems unnecessary.
