AllMusic Review by

The lead single preceding the 2002 release of After Everything Now This contains two versions of the single's title track accompanied with two songs that did not make it onto the full-length. All of the facets of the influential group are present in somewhat exaggerated form here. Both versions of "Numbers" fit in nicely with the lush, pretty arrangements found on the band's latter LPs, though the "soft mix" rings somewhat more authentic. "Undo" returns to the band's neo-psychedelic roots but is even more ethereal, and disc-closer "Oxydental" is a drum machine-paced exotic melodrama that covers the experimental side of the influential four-piece without stepping beyond what the Church does best.
