Interpol's rhythm section comes out ahead of the guitarists on this four-track EP of remixes, featuring a track reworked by each member of the band on an individual basis (though Sam Fogarino is joined by Bob Mould during his turn). Paul Banks' shot at "Narc" is a solemn re-recording consisting of only acoustic guitar and Banks' distant voice. Daniel Kessler's "Not Even Jail" sounds like it could've been done on the fly, with interjections of noisy sound effects and a harsher drum sound. Fogarino and Mould's "The Length of Love" is the best of the batch by a great distance, throwing drums every which way while maintaining a steady groove (it could be confused with a DFA mix with the addition of some cowbell). Carlos D's "Public Pervert" is a spare, winding dance track that sounds custom-made for one of his DJ sets.
