*****
Quite a different sound from Birds of Tokyo. Very nice track.
***
Already hearing this quite a bit on the radio. It's average.
*****
I like this already. Nice track, glad they are back.

Really good, a 5 now.

Good.

I no longer applaud them for releasing this song which I can do without.

Quite enjoyable. Very middle of the pack kind of song. The little electro arrangements add that little bit extra. Not comparable to their big charters however. 3.7*

I love this. Have always enjoyed BOT and I would go as far as saying this is their best song yet.

Shame it didn't crack the top 20. Hopefully someone sings it on The Voice and it rebounds on the chart. Here's hoping.
**
I apologise if I am unintentionally and unknowingly repeating something that has already been said.

I always pinned down Birds of Tokyo's sonic shift to when Glenn joined a band. But in an interview, he said that he was an avid Eagles supporter, so surely he'd have no say in this?

Otherwise shrug. The only melodic line that sticks out in this song is the synth that just nicks the melody from London Grammar's "Strong". Considering that Karnivool covered "Hey Now" for Like A Version just 12 months prior, it doesn't feel like a coincidence.

Hopefully what they said was true, and their next EP/LP will be totally different. This well is running dry, and the only result is that their legacy will be being the boring band whose songs are always on commercials.
****
Ah crap. I think I actually like a Turds of Tokyo song now. ;(
***
I liked this initially but after a while I was less than impressed. Stripped of the personality that they usually have. Aside from not having anything offensive about it, there's not a lot to commend. Mediocre effort that will hopefully be forgotten.
