AllMusic Review by

The cheapest way to get the hot B-side "To See the Lights" is to scour the used bins, as it has been included on the promo-only For the Dead EP on A&M. This is a must for any non-import-buying Gene fan, since it has four non-LP songs and is likely to be only three to four dollars in the used bin, the only place it will be for sale. In addition to "To See the Lights" and the cover of the Beatles' "Don't Let Me Down," it also includes the truly wonderful "Sick, Sober and Sorry" and the sublime "Her Fifteen Years" (great line: "For all the love I gave/I'm left alone." Ouch.) from the import "Sleep Well Tonight" single.
