An excellent single. The single remix is actually superior to the album original, with tighter drums and guitars higher in the mix. The Escape From Wherever: Parts 1 & 2! remix brings an excellent atmospheric ambient start followed by a juxtaposed "grungy electronica" (does such a genre exist?) second half. Certainly one of DM's best - and underrated - releases.
