"This CD single is very good, no doubt about it. The song Surrender almost killed me, that's how good I think it is. Yet the title song isn't quite as good as the Ultra stuff, although it's not a bad song. The instrumental track isn't too bad, but instrumentals can't interest me too much, they never do. I need lyrics and voices. Surrender should have been the A-side, no doubt about it. I can't wait for a new album, which will hopefully be released before 2000...let's now hope the third world war will come a little later...what about never, than we'll have many more beautiful albums"
I always lose myself in this song..........

""it's Only when I lose myself in some one else,that I find myself." Who else could say that so well besides DM?Nobody.This may be a new song,but I must say it's a classic in my muzik collection.And not just for "OWILM" but for the b-side "Surrender" it must be the most passion-flavouring songs i've ever heard come out of David's voice.If you don't buy it for the great mixes of "OWILM" but it for "Surrender",you will be satisfied."
Outstanding Depeche Mode pure

"This single was long forthcoming and is well worth the wait. Since the last album, Depeche Mode have turned their direction to melodious, soft tunes, which have brought great, undeserved criticism from some of their old fans. "Only when I loose myself" is a typical Depeche Mode track with noisy synths and heavy bassline, but definetly modernized by their softer tunes. The lyrics are introverted, similar to "Somebody" and "Shake the disease", and Dave Gahan's voice carries its message beautifully. Sadly, thou, there is no new great Album to accompany this single, but just a Greatest Hits compilation. Personally, this single is the greatest single for me since "Never let me down again" in 1987. I guess, we've all grown up since :-) If you are a fan, it's a must have. If you are just getting into the group's music it's a prime candidate. if you love pop, you should not miss it. 6 stars, if I could :-)"
