AllMusic Review by

Following Tahiti 80's lackluster 2000 album, Puzzle, this EP was released in 2001 containing three remixes of tracks from the record along with a live version of "I.S.S.A.C.," a song that in its simplicity, tone, and bright acoustic brilliance separates it from the rest of this bland collection. Concerning the remixes, "Heartbeat" -- while not exactly a classic track to start with -- is given wince-inducing sprightly pop treatment by guitar wizard Cornelius. The other two remix tracks, "Revolution 80" and "When The Sun," don't benefit much from having their previous mixes turned into a "Millennium Version" and a "Sunrise Version" respectably. As for the exclusive material on the record, these songs were presumably cut from one of the worst releases of 2000, and frankly should have stayed that way.
