"The Blue Hour's new single is a beautiful version of the iconic Smiths classic, 'How Soon Is Now?' done in the dark ethereal sound of the band, which is delicate at times with touches of electronic agonistic engineering. Marselle's voice rises and resounds giving the song a ghostly presence, while Brian's backing vocals provide an earthy resonance. Their brilliant rendition overcomes the challenge of covering such a perfect original by providing a much more obscure and haunting sound. The b-side, "Wheel and Web," provides a post-industrial landscape mixed with the luminous and ethereal airs of 1980s 4AD. Marselle's voice rises like Elizabeth Fraser in her golden years, though also reminiscent of Kate Bush, while taking a unique turn toward pagan sounds. The rhythmic and instrumental structure created by Brian provides the perfect soundtrack between a pagan ritual and celestial elevation." -Revista the 13th Magazine
