    Just like the great dub albums of the past, this is one that will provoke revisits to the original. [Jan 2012, p.67]

    And yet all these reworks and revisions stay in the general vicinity of the original album's tone of massive yet starkly open spaces, adding a few new facets but always staying close to the fine line Waiting for You treaded between bleak and euphoric.

    For all the ups and downs, this collection fulfills Martin's goal of continuing the conversation.

    Despite appearances from the likes of Mala, dBridge, Flying Lotus, Gang Gang Dance, and Cooly G, King Midas Sound's collection of Waiting for You remixes largely feels uneven and half-baked.
  7. The result disturbs something of the original's gauzy ambience, but there are some fine refigurings.
