"Trigger Happy Jack, the song that made me fall in love with POE and her first album HELLO, is available here in it's many splenderous forms. The original LP version sounds like it was recorded in a rehearsal studio, so I have no objections to the much sheen-induced drive-by remix that has more of a rhythmic flair yet holding onto the howling guitar bits. The other remix is an extended, ambient selection, possible something you may hear at a strip joint or a goth club. The non-lp B-side Padre Fear is a pleasent song if you enjoyed the rest of the HELLO lp. Also appearing on this cd is the LP track That Day, a song that Poe opened with when I saw her live in 1996, and a very personal a diary like dark track that consists of only orchestral beeps and clicks, and an underlying distorted guitar that emphasises the bitter chorus. Overall, if you are Nostalgic for some mid-90s alternative, purchase this single and add the radio remix of the title track to your I-pod for instant pleasure."
