Although EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL isn't my favorite Coldcut track off of SOUND MIRRORS, as it tries too hard with its rock-hybrid, here, in remixed form, it produces some interesting results. Trevor Jackson revives his Underdog moniker for a icy, bass-heavy take, while Solid Groove puts a house groove to the track. DJ Kentaro adds a slight Japanese flavor to his intro before tackling the main body with some scratching and breaks, whereas the "Theory 0.1" mix emphasizes more of the blues element, as opposed to the rock element. Not bad, but not their best, either.

Where are the Coldcuts of yesteryear? Not only is this not innovative or interesting in any way, it also sounds utterly dated and smacks of a poorly-timed rap/rock attempt at relevance in a musical world that has grabbed hold of the Coldcut sampling aesthetic and moved far, far ahead. Embarrassingly bad, "heavy" guitars and shoddy beats, combined with some truly lame generic "political" lyrics. Look, I hate the King Bush II regime as much as anyone else, but this is really just sad.
