******
My favourite of theirs. Really cool.
******
One of the best rock tracks of the 2000s, very rare to see such a song debut so high.
Also with a great video to boot.

Powerful, rocking track which I've grown to like even more with time.

Average track.
****
Certainly does well with being energetic and rocking but personally not a huge fan. The chorus is very memorable at least and I also really enjoy the bridge (probably the best part of the song). It's not hard to see why it became one of their best charting hits although I am amazed at its top 50 longevity given none of their others had close to as much as this. I like "Long Road To Ruin" and numerous others of theirs more.

Ein Hammersong.
