Really impressed with this on first listen.
*****
The smoothness continues. Very surprised to hear that saxophone hook.

This sounds like those Nespresso ads :P

Its ok but i'm just not a fan of him and don't find him that interesting at all, 2.5.

Quite classy, his best solo effort thus far. 3.75
*****
Very smooth and slick production, and I like Chet's vocals. A wonderful effort and a treat to listen to.
****
Very nice and soothing. I probably prefer "Drop The Game" but this is really cool.
****
Pretty good. [2]
***
Average. I guess Chet Faker is playing the role of random Indie Aus Artist that suddenly becomes popular this year, last year it was Flume.
******
Awesome track and it is a finally a genuine hit.

This song is just about having sex, right? I've looked into the many, many blogs that posted about this song when it was released and basically none of them seem interested in touching on the lyrics (one actually said that you just shouldn't). A shame really because this sounds like the sort of thing that I don't give enough credit to for not paying attention to the lyrics, but I just can't really salvage anything out of it.

So all I have to go with is the tune which is...ok? I like the occasionally twinkling keyboards, and the sax does nicely with anchoring the track but I can't say I'm wholly entertained is all. Maybe it'll feel more grand in the future but otherwise I just feel a little out of touch. It's not that I dislike Chet Faker or anything, but this feels more middling for him than his zenith like I'm told to believe. 3.3
*****
This song is very sax-y. I like it a lot.
