AllMusic Review by

The follow-up EP to From the Double Gone Chapel is filled out with two new songs, a remix, two instrumental versions, and a dub. The two new songs -- "Showbiz Shotguns" and "Feast" -- contain the same combination of viscous, bruising electronics, perverse rock instrumentation, and guttural stalker vocals heard on Double Gone. An instrumental of "Showbiz Shotguns" is also provided; the dub mix of "Feast" piles on the sludge. A remix of the duo's cover of the Gun Club's "Sex Beat" -- also paired with an instrumental version -- takes the emphasis off the rusted-out guitars heard on the original mix and shapes it into dark electropop. This is too much of an afterthought to be essential to anyone other than those who can't get enough of the album that preceded it.
