Allmusic 4/5 stars[2]

On the EP, Allmusic critic Nitsuh Abebe wrote: "They don't feel like songs that weren't quite good enough for Isn't Anything; they might display some of the stylistic tendencies of the Ecstasy and Wine period, but they're just as worthwhile as the album tracks."[2]

In another review, Stewart Mason of Allmusic thought that the track "more in keeping with the moody, gothy rock of My Bloody Valentine's much-inferior earliest records." Mason also stated that the track "has a peculiar feel, pitched somewhere between the bombastic self-importance of mid-'80s Nick Cave and the ethereality of prime Cocteau Twins, mixed with the same sort of slightly dopey S&M-tinged lyrics as the roughly contemporaneous "Cigarette in Your Bed," proving that it was in the long run a very smart idea for Kevin Shields to completely bury the lyrics on My Bloody Valentine's later work."[3] Digital Spy commended the "ear-splitting garage rock scuzz of the title track.[4]
