    Ultimately, the EP lives up to its name, offering reflections on A U R O R A that enhance that work and are compelling in their own right.

    This is energetic and essential listening.

    V A R I A N T’s greatest strength is its palpable character, and his remix struggles to properly distinguish itself on an EP that is filled to the brim with varied and often unexpected takes on Frost’s music.

    With the lows and highs out of the way, the three other mixes sit somewhere on the fence.

    The sounds are attractive, sometimes unique, but a personality gets lost in translation.

    It would be a tall order to expect them to rival Frost's raw power, but these remixes don't unearth much fascinating stuff, and the EP turns out (mostly) competent but wan.
