    Though different in style and construction, they all succeed in doing in giving you the chills, in a whole new way.

    The Remixes is as well balanced as it is eclectic, finding room for tracks that clearly bear the stamp of their remixers.

    The rest of the album is similarly focused on animated, inventive electronica which cherry-picks from minimal techno, early synth-pop, moody new wave and Animal Collective-like rhythmic collages. [Dec 2012, p.94]

    The original record was decent but not especially memorable, and the remixes rarely rise above the level of a discarded Caribou B-side.

    Remixes is an assorted bag of impressive highs and frustrating lows.

    Mostly, the remix collection works in this vein, mutating the originals by further accentuating the brooding atmosphere and driving the beat harder. [No. 94, p.61]

    If you like the Scottish band, you should probably pick up No One Can Ever Know. If you're interested in the remixers, they have their own material to explore. There's nothing here that either camp can't live without.
