CRITIC REVIEWS

78
Pitchfork

It's the playful, borderline daft moments that stand out the most, riding the gamut from fun to flipping nuts.

70
Drowned in Sound

A nice homespun, organic and lovingly prepared supplement to Gloss Drop.

70
Beats Per Minute

Despite a couple speed bumps, Dross Glop is as solid of a collaborative remix album as you’re going to find.

60
Consequence of Sound

Some of the tracks are downright ugly listening — like the stuttering EYE remix of “Sundome” that wavers like a mirage — but a few gems shine through.

musicOMH

For such an experimental band maybe they could have pushed these remixes further instead of into a no-man’s land of accessible.

55
The 405

This would appear then, to be a remix album not particularly for fans of the original body of work, but for fans of the remix artists.

50
PopMatters

Some of the changes applied to these songs may not strike Battles fans as good or bad; some may just find themselves being neutral to the whole thing.
