Critical receptionEdit

Billboard wrote about the song: "Wildly popular British rave act previews its upcoming U.S. sophomore set, "Boss Drum," with an NRGetic workout that is splashed with acidic keyboard lines and pouty female vamping."[1]

Smash Hits gave it 5 out of 5, noting: "L.S.I.? Love, Sex, Intelligence if you're interested. And you will be, 'cos, like Move Any Mountain, this is a corkin' Hi-NRG anthem that snaps at your heels like an annoying Yorkshire Terrier and demands you dance. Odd folk but they know a cuffin' good groove when it tweaks their ear-lobes."[2]
