Prog Reviewer
3 stars This single contains a reduced version of "I Believe in You", atmospheric ballad voice-keyboards-drums, which in the extended version has a greater charm, due to the greater hypnoticity and the role of the strange central instrumental solo. Here is only a good song, nothing more. Rating 7.5.

Then on the B side there is the outtake " John Cope", more pop-style, more rhythmic but the phrasing on drums refers to other pieces of Spirit of Eden and does not appear particularly original, in fact it is a minor song of Talk Talk. Rating 7+.

Overall modest single, which reaches the three stars for a while, the beauty of the Talk Talk music, arrived at this point lies in the beauty of the project of the entire album, not in the individual episodes.

7+ rating. Three stars.
