AllMusic Review by

A four-song German-released EP with cuts from Fireships ("I Will Find You") and The Noise ("Like A Shot, The Entertainer") bracketed by German versions of "Auto" (from In A Foreign Town) and "His Best Girl" (from Fireships.) The latter cut, retitled "Favorit," has Hammill sounding quite unlike himself until the end, with his measured delivery of the lyrics (in a somewhat French accent!) Proving highly compelling. "Auto (Wieder im Wagen)," meanwhile, becomes even more chaotic and surreal than the original, though the mix on this version is very weak indeed. A fascinating curiosity, though.
