Only is the New Song a True Highlight
(3 out of 5 stars)
"The song "13 x Forever" is the only reason to get this single. With an album version of "Special" (which is a great song, don't get me wrong) and an uninspired remix of "Special", you'll find you'll just tape the second track and never play the single it came on."
Worth it for the B-side

"Garbage fans, "Special #2" cries out for your love! This CD single isn't as good as "Special #1", but it has its place. The B-side, "13 x Forever", has turned into one of my favorite Garbage songs - it's an infectious winner that should have been on the album. "Special" is still a great song, and one of VERSION 2.0's strongest tracks. The only weak spot here is the dull, unnecessary Brothers in Rhythm remix of "Special". Otherwise, "Special #2" is a worthy buy."
13 x Forever!

"This was the first import that i have ever bought from Garbage, and i was so impressed that i have bought 9 more of them. The CD is excellent. Sure it only has 3 songs on it, but the song 13xForever makes up for it. This song is my favorite B-side. Shirley's vocals are just amazing, and the lyrics make the song phenominal. I would definately recomend this CD to anyone who is even an avid Garbage listener. 5 stars indeed."
