Another 24 carat gold pop song, brilliant, melodic, sublime...another one of their best...
*****
Very good, one of their best post-"Arrival" imo. Very catchy with brilliant vocals, with the backing vocals even being very enjoyable and also very effective. Well done in basically every respect though. Can't believe it only peaked at #12 in Australia, should've at least gone top 5!
