AllMusic Review by

This single's A side, a remix of the title track (from Jam Science), is not one of Shriekback's exemplary moments, placing too much emphasis on the song's mechanistic rhythm. The B side, though, offers two truly ace non-LP songs: "Gated Joy," an ominous funk track with lyrical reference to Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness; and "Bricks and Whistles," an effectively minimalist piano instrumental.
