Especially for the queen of pop, who is a wizard at maxi singles, “Frozen” is a letdown. The song itself is a beautiful, ominous pop masterpiece but it doesn’t quite lend itself to dance floor theatrics, as evidenced by the few remixes included here. The “Extended Club Mix” only really gets going about four minutes into its eleven-minute running time, and the “Meltdown Mix” is not bad but that’s not exactly high praise for an eight-minute long song. Only the “Stereo MC’S Mix” taps into the deep grooves that make the original song so special, which isn’t to say much for a four-track maxi single.
