Tim: Starts quiet, but builds. And then builds some more, and keeps building, and…oh, you’ll see.
Tim: Do you see?
Tom: At least partly, after I stopped trying to work out why she didn’t seem to have a left arm in that cover art.
Tim: Do you now, I’d not noticed that – it is a bit odd looking, isn’t it? I’ll confess I wasn’t entirely sold on this throughout the first verse – decent enough, but possibly closer to album track status. The pre-chorus got me interested, though, and then the chorus came in properly with the amazing orchestral backing.
Tom: It’s good! I’m still not sure it’s more than an album track, but I suspect that it’s a grower: after enough radio play it’d be stuck in my head.
Tim: Good. Because after all that, it’s standard good pop song progression, really, because this is very much a good pop song. Very good indeed.
