"What can I say? Walking in my shoes has been for a long time one of my dearest songs. There are amazing tracks and remixes here. The WIMS remix called Ambient Whales is one of the greatest remixes I've ever heard, and the one called Grungy Gonads Mix is may be even greater. WIMS, btw, is so beautiful and sad, and when i listen to it i just feel so relaxed and purified, especially to the end. Typically it's one of those songs that, although somewhat slow, makes you want to jump, run and shout filled with energy. The same applies to My Joy, which has even more energy. I think that My Joy is in the TOP 3 of the best DM songs.Passion - that's what it is about. I really can't understand why DM did not put it in the album - may be 'cos of the short lyrics - who knows. Anyways this track is awesome - a Chinese Wall of sounds - electronic, awesome drums + horns, strings (to the end). And that line "I am not a mountain, no. You move me!" just moves you so much! So you're not a mountain - move yourself and buy this single right away!!!!!!!!"

"My Joy is one of the stronger B-sides Depeche Mode has put out. It's got a strong atmosphere to it, combining symphonic elements with a grunge-sounding guitar typical to SOFAD-era DM, is complete with lyrics and vocals, and also manages to be uplifting, which is somewhat unusual for DM. In addition to the 7" mix, the Slow Slide mix is also very good...in fact, it's one of the only remixes of a b-side I will listen to.
Walking in My Shoes is also a great song, and lends itself well to remixing. Some mixes border on redundancy, but some, such as the Anandemic mix and the Ambient Whale mix take the song in new directions as well as punch up the atmosphere allready present in the original song.
My Joy is one of the better DM b-sides, and the remixes of Walking in My Shoes are among the least redudant and strongest remixes of DM's singles material. If you're looking to pick up DM singles, Walking in My Shoes is a worthwhile buy."
Good Single Album

"I've come across some disappointing DM Singles ('Home/Useless' single comes to mind automatically with a sour taste in my mouth), but 'Walking in My Shoes' surprised me in that none of the songs sounded too long, too stretched out, or boring. The 'Walking in My Shoes' Random Carpet Mix is one of my favorite mixes, as well as the 'Seven Inch Mix' which is just the original song, just played out a bit longer. The mixes also have 'My Joy', a decent song that reminds me of a rockier version of 'Higher Love'. The 'Ambient Whale Mix' is a pretty creepy, yet soothing song that also has its high merits. This album is perfect for those who love 'Walking in My Shoes' and for those DM fanatics who want every album in their collection."
