AllMusic Review by

Another selection from The Burning World that works much better than the actual album itself, the title track is one of the more middling efforts from that indifferent release. Rather more interesting are the B-sides, including an acoustic take on Burning's "See No More," which comes across more successfully than the original, and "No Cruel Angel," an almost Morricone-like track with dramatic, twangy guitars and a stately pace, as Jarboe's vocals provide a lovely backup to Gira's lead croon.
