(5 out of 5 stars)
"2007 re-release of the 2005 single (due in no small part to the success of the video on youtube which sees the band molested by a giant two-legged toy dog up a mountain during a blizzard - part art-school project/part homage to The Goodies). A nihilist mantra of self-protection from emotional harm - and it's a real stomper. For about five minutes a few of years ago this would've been labeled electroclash, but since that train came and went without stopping "thumping, glacial, analogue synth masterpiece" will have to do. Like New Order's Touched By the Hand of God with its skates on and a coolly dispassionate vocal, it grips from the slow build intro then explodes.
Single of the decade."
