I like it.

Pretty good.

Proof that this style doesn't have to be dulled down to the masses to be accessible. The guitar riff is really lovely and the main melody that accompanies makes this a winner. 4.5

Identical melodies. I'm sure this wasn't copied because James Bay is a completely different musical style to Hillsong, but I just can't ignore the similarities. I'm baffled as to how this became a hit when 'Let It Go' was frankly better and should have been noticed instead of this. I do like this though and it's good.

Netter Track, der super für das Radio ist!
4*
****
Very nice track.
****
Stört nicht, ist aber nicht interessant.

Just the latest in a long line of boring indie pop/folk/rock songs that have no business being near the top of the mainstream charts. It's so frustrating!

Edit: 2 stars down to 1. The song annoys the crap out of me now.

Uneventful but somewhat enjoyable. It gets better towards the end and I like his voice.
*****
I think this is nice - has grown on me somewhat over the past couple of weeks. James Bay is one of the best new talents of 2015 - his voice is good and a bit rough around the edges which is a nice change from many of his pop contemporaries.

Pleasant sound. This may take a while to grow on me more. It takes long to get into a groove. 3.5*
******
Absolutely love this track. A breath of fresh air for music. This was only compounded when Hozier and George Ezra (both very similar artists) released tracks around the same time. Favourite track of the year so far, and it will be hard to knock off.

I have to admit I expected to get bored of this after about a month, but I still enjoy it quite a bit. I'd say I like the guitar riff the most which always sticks in my head and is better than the one in "Let It Go". Aside from those vocals from 1:56 to 2:08 I enjoy his performance here. I especially enjoy 1:29 to 1:55. I've always enjoyed how it changes up throughout the song, it still surprises me sometimes when it changes into something I wasn't expecting. Still nice to listen to and I think the #4 peak is fair.
******
I find this to be an enjoyable and strong single months after release also.

Very catchy.

This is a great song to just listen to and very catchy. UK#2 and Ireland#1.
