***** ▒ Een vrolijke, leuke, vlotte, swingende plaat uit augustus 2014 van de nu inmiddels 31 jarige Amerikaanse zanger, songschrijver en platenproducer: "Andrew Charles 'Andy' Grammer" !!! Krap 5 sterren ☺!!!
** Absolutely atrocious. A terrible attempt at making a country song. Just sounds irritating, desperate and tacky. The vocals especially epitomise the fauxness of it. If he was attempting to make one of the most irritating songs to chart this decade, than well done. Shame this is becoming a hit, was hoping I'd never hear it again when it charted for the first time.
Edit: I still think it sounds like it's trying to be country (but more what lots of people probably imagine country being as opposed to what it really is, if that makes any sense at all) and it does really sound cringey. And it's still so irritating too. At least he's choosing not to cheat on his partner and that's a good thing but it's not really enough to save it from being bad. I'm pleased it didn't get big in Australia like I was imagining it would, has certainly helped with hating it less. Not for me at all tbh. Last edited: 29/11/2015 01:57
***** Ik moet zeggen dat ik dit best wel een lekker popplaatje (mét een countrysausje) vind. Voor Grammer, die normaal jazzy pop maakt, is het een uitstapje naar een voor hem onbekend genre, maar dit zal vast eenmalig zijn. Wel is dit zijn meest catchy nummer to date, en 5* zijn hier wat mij betreft wel op zijn plaats!
**** My personal "so bad it's good" song of the year. I find it really catchy, although it's more of an earworm situation rather than something that I would genuinely remember and listen to. The lyrics to the song aren't really good, but I remember every single verse from the song without needing to even listen to it.
** Several cringe moments in this song. Mostly the "I'm good" response implies avoiding an awkward situation and hoping it will quickly pass by. The difficulty is that the awkward topic can't pass by quickly as the listener has to endure 3 minutes of the said topic. Adieu and adiós.
