*****
"Can I lay by your side? Next to you?"

Wunderschön gesungen!
Wunderschöner Song!
Die steigerung gegen Ende hätte es meiner Meinung nicht gebraucht...es stört mich sogar ein wenig! Deshalb "nur" 5*
*****
I love that vocal run in the chorus, the final note is just awesome. Love this song so much.

EDIT: I've become a bit weary of this over time - it is a little whiny and can become irritating. Also I wish the bridge built up to something more, just loses its energy!

Good stuff.
***
His best track so far, actually decent.
****
Pleasant.
***
I'm not moved at all by his vocal style on show here, but the track zooms through and the instrumentation makes up for it too. Just not so keen on the bridge. 3.5
****
Sure, it might get a bit whiny at times, but this is actually another decent offering from Sam Smith.

Original: 4.1
Feat. John Legend: 4.3
Flume Remix: 4.7
**
thank god I found something I like about it. Smith in the verses just sounds like he's blurting stuff out at random times in the first verse, which kills momentum for the song right from the outset. Couple that with the lame chorus vocals and it's a total disaster, saved by the piano in the bridge that oddly reminds me of Sara Bareilles' Love Song. Australia's worst top 10 hit since Amnesia.
*****
Technically his highest peaking song on ARIA so far (even though it doesn't seem like it should be) and I would also say is my favourite from Sam to date.
This isn't far off the makings of a great ballad. Going into the 2nd verse, this soars. Unfortunately the cohesion was just lost a touch around the bridge. Also the song seems to annoyingly finish too quick.
Very good overall. 4.7*
