K. Saur from German art blog Auf Mund wrote a short preview review of the album. (Cheers to Karin for allowing us to re-print it here.)

"Working their cassette vinyl, Chilean psycho-acoustic duo Tom Smith & Patrick Spurlock ascend to prominence with these finest Berlin versions (featuring 'Handing' versions) dreamed up in their mystical bunker - this is B! Their Berlin remixes dream mythic one-counts that border synth-psycho pioneering duo To Which, with sounds more propulsive than Essential in Tape. (I am right on this, so don't bother to argue.) Originally dance-floor deaf, astonishingly immersive mix sources put polar aversion to the 'Cassette Honesty B-Side' test. Red B-sides approach among re-shaped, eerier scrapings, finally pressing toward proper power-vinyl versions. Mix-word wizards, proper (regal) counts, totally unlike your dull originals - the 2012 elongation of 08's Petty Demons is a focused tone driving to perfection. Spurlock and Smith sprawl where others fear to floor."

- Saur, Auf Mund, Summer 2012.
