This was released as the first single from the album. It has a raw industrial sound and uncompromising lyrics. In an interview with Pitchfork Media, the interviewer commented that it was an uncompromising comeback single. Geoff Barrow replied that "when you come back you don't want to tickle people under the chin."
The rest of the album also has a darker sound than their two previous albums, a BBC reviewer commented that it wasn't something she would play at a dinner party. Geoff Barrow told Q magazine February 2008 about the album's sound: "It's a lot more evil. It still sounds like us, but there's some electronic stuff on it too." Guitarist Adrian Utley added to Billboard magazine: "It sounds nothing like Dummy or Portishead, but it's definitely its older brother or sister. It's the same mindset we've always had, only further down the road."
