AllMusic Review by

This CD single doesn't have much to recommend it. To begin with, the choice of "The Bastard Sons of Enoch" as the lead single from Sacred City was perplexing; it's one of the album's least appealing songs, and is not improved by its presentation here in three versions totaling over 17 minutes. The other two tracks both appeared on Sacred City as instrumentals, but while "Below" is unchanged from the album version, "3 A.M." adds narration that helps illuminate the album's theme, making it this single's only interesting moment.
