At the Time influential Billboard USA Magazine’s Michael Paoletta, described the remix at of “Into the West” as ….
“Overflowing with haunting synth patterns, shaded beats, cinematic strings and Lennox’s unmistakable voice. Gold’s epic remix sits somewhere between the music of U2 and Massive Attack. Though this year is still young, consider this one of the year’s best remixes.”
