Great hit!
**
Overrated, enough said
*****
Apart from a crass title, I've found it hard to find reasons to dislike this. Very hooky riff that just sounds so distinct in their catalogue. Bass, drums, guitar, they all play their roles well, and I still have fond memories of watching this climb the charts, all the way to the top. :)

dont know what it is with the belgians, 3 songs of this group in the charts, and they are all bad....
***
Zeer overroepen.
Over pakweg 5 jaar vergeten?
*****
The chorus is great...rest is okay-ish :P
*****
Song is immense but in danger of over exposure. It's great but shouldn't still be played to death. 124 Weeks in the UK top 100. 140,713 sold while at #1. UK#1 and Ireland#1. 1.2 Million copies sold in the UK. (Their 1st million+ seller single UK)

was great at first but now im over it!!!!
*****
yeeeeeeeaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh this sex is on fire
****
I have had far too many up and down periods where I would love it one day, and hate it the rest. Overplay has been detrimental to the longevity of the song. Still a classic, but I need to be in the right mood to like it.

Better than Use Somebody, but still meh.
*****
Great but not quite 'top shelf' quality. Agree that it risks being played to death for now. But this will achieve classic/vintage status.
***
Shouldn't have been overplayed but has a good driving sound in the verses and a catchy chorus. Wouldn't be great on its own but stands out among the terrible Auto-Tune music making the charts now.
**
boring to say the least
******
Awesome song. Deserved to be the hit it was.

Came in at #6 in my Top 100 of 2008.

Great track, very infectious and hooky.

It isn't among their best but for what it is, it's a great song.

CRAP!!!
**
meh... dont like his voice.
*
Awful and it got flogged on Radio WAAAAAAAAAAY too much. Infuriating song.
******
Standout track from Only By The Night!
*
Terrible.
***
I was never a fan of it when it first came out, I thought it was incredibly mediocre in comparison to their previous tracks but I was quite happy to see a rock band at the top of the UK Singles Charts again. It's so overplayed it's unreal, I mean the song was blown way out of proportion, and made out to be this really incredible, deep and passionate song, when it was just a rock song about sex. Got bored of it very quickly, even before the hype started. Nothing on the rest of their back catalogue.
**
it annoys me
****
Overrated song, but it's okay in my opinion.
****
Pretty good, and on par with 'Use Somebody'.
*****
Great! Definitely better than "Use Somebody".
**
I don't know why this song gets such good reviews. It's not even that good. Very average. Use Somebody is a lot better than this and deserved to have the success that this had. But this is probably always going to overshadow that song.

I've never liked this and most likely never will. Annoyed that such an average song has such a massive chart run.

One of the most overrated rock hits ever but at least it wasn't BAD.
