    In nearly every case, the remix version does justice to the original while taking the track to a completely different place sonically.

    Ultimately, Dross Glop cements the versatility of the second version of Battles, establishing them as both a powerful singular and collaborative force.

    Overall 'Dross Glop' may please and frustrate in equal measures.

    Dross Glop sounds a long way from Battles themselves. [Jun 2012, p.69]

    For such an experimental band maybe they could have pushed these remixes further instead of into a no-man's land of accessible. For Battles, this is unchallenging territory.

    Even when the remixes don't come up with anything particularly groundbreaking to say, it's interesting to hear Gloss Drop through new ears.

    Unfortunately, the majority of Dross Glop's remixers fail to find any new inspiration in reworking the original material. The results are scattershot, meandering, awkward, and often boring.
