4/10 Clinton Staff review, 15 July 2011
The selling points on this 12" are sure to be the remixes by Sonic Boom and Silver Apples as the original tracks are not too much of interest. Opener 'Amber Hands' comes across like the overblown pomposity of Kasabian or The Verve whilst the second tune 'Fountains' is a forgettable piece of ambience. Silver Apples (Simeon must be about 90 now?) alas keep the vocals running but add their pneumatic brand of rhythm and some squelches from the oscillator. Sonic Boom somehow manages to make an already muddy song even muddier by seemingly playing the track through a transistor radio speaker and re-recording it, adding the oddest of 13th Floor Elevators type wobble. Despite the big names involved it's money for old rope, basically.
