This single takes me back almost exactly 20 years to the release of Very, but more particularly the limited edition Relentless bonus CD that came with early copies of the album. That featured (at the time) very experimental dance tracks, and the mixes, and b-sides (Entschuldigung! and Get It Online) remind me very much of this mini-album, whilst the mixes of Love is a Borgeois Construct (in this instance Nighttime Radio edit and The Penelopes Remix) are worthwhile additions to the portfolio.

These tracks have lifted me this morning, and feeling much better now.

Well done Neil and Chris again.

I love the new album/gave it 5...but this is not a very good PSB ep and here's why - for as long as I've been buying ep's and ext. mixes, etc. I've always thought of a 'dub' version as an 'instrumental' version, single edit and single mixes are usually almost exactly the same as the version on the full album. The three dub or instrumental versions (7/8/9) are just that taken from the previous three remixes (4/5/6) and the Penelopes remix is an insturmental with only the title being sung/sprinkled in a couple of times. The Claptone mix is a slowed mix with handclaps (mildly interesting) and the only true 'remix' and it is a pretty good one is the Little Boots mix.

"Entschuldigung' is insturmental with the exception of some spoken German - it's ok, reminds me of light industrial, sort of reminds me of an ok Front 242 track.

'Get it Online' is almost the PSB's response to some of the instrumental/foreign language tracks recently put out by OMD. It's the better of the two b-sides I think, but not by much.

So there you have a couple of ok b-sides, a 'good' mix by Little Boots and the rest is filler.

I'm not a 'blind' follower, not even of the best out there. If you want a solid PSB ep try last years 'Winner' ep with 'A Certain Je Ne..' and 'Way Through the Woods' or the Leaving ep with 'Hell' and 'In his Imagination' or the Christmas ep.

This one isn't worth the high prices I see people paying
...enjoy the pretty packaging.

If this had been launched in the 80s, this would have been a TOP 5 hit by the boys.
This is how good this song is.

I didn't realise this was a single double EP I love the lyrics when Neil Tennant sings the line 'drinking tea like Tony Benn' in which it makes me want to chuckle especially the first time I heard the song I also like he remix of the track as it sounds good on vinyl.

Great song. The only reason I didn't give this single five stars is I think the longer album cut is even better. And the two B sides included here are quite enjoyable in a cold, techno sort of way.

Not the single I would have released when "Electric" was first put out for sale. The bonus tracks are what make this cd single worth the price.
