"Great effort. Great remixes. Great album." - Music-News.com [3]

"This second re-imagining rightly uses its predecessor as a launch pad while keeping the Floyd's uniquely ambivalent overall mood, but allows the re-mixers ideas to take flight." - Angus Taylor, BBC Music [4]

"A highly desirable set of beatmakers and dub masters are handling the remixes here..." - David Jeffries, All Music [5]
