It's ok but not really a great song.

OK i guess it has some appeal factor to it. It's still really weird though and I don't know if I could ever really enjoy this.

Interesting.

I find this to be one of the most bizarre popular songs of 2012. Coming from yet another UK hype band, but one that stands out from the rest. However these stand out features don't come across as optimum. In particular this song which features disjointed instrumentation and is difficult to explain ("DA NA NA NA!"). And those wacky vocals that don't really sound like anything else contemporary. What's the song about? Like most, I can barely decifer the lyrics to get that far, apart from the occasional slip of 'breezeblocks', and repeating of the bizarre hook, "Please don't go, I'll eat you whole". In theory it's a disaster but I find myself drawn to it still.

Not too bad, though not really that exciting.

Some aspects of this really interest me.

The song is okay for me, but the ending is a bit annoying for my liking. A scary music video too.

I can't believe this is predicted to do so well in the Australia Day countdown on Triple J.

EDIT: Started to like this more. 3* -> 4*.

Great track! I love the vocals, and what lyrics I can make out so far, and especially the dramatic "DA NA NA NA" moments.

Disastrous! Terrible vocals and the song as a whole is quite annoying. Can't believe it did so well on the Triple J Hottest 100 of 2012 being above much better songs such as "Holdin On" and "Latch" and also doing so well in the Triple J Hottest 100 of the past 20 years.

Actually I was maybe a bit harsh, still mostly annoying but there's some enjoyable moments which makes it 2* worthy.

It's not perfect (ie. some of the lyrics I can't quite understand), but it is still a very strong track with a lot of prestige.

#67 in JJJ Hottest 100 20 years.

Meh.
