one of my all time faves,reminds of a better time in the world.lyrics fantastic ,voice is fantastic on this,live version was amazing with crowd roar halfway through.to me this is a work of art.
10 works of/10 art.
One of the greatest Ringleader compositions: it’s urgent, driving and passionate, and masks the iffy production with some intriguing instrumental choices and a stunner of a vocal performance.
I adore the strings running throughout, especially that constant feedback drone that emerges throughout as a motive to keep moving.
It’s very cinematic, while the lyrics lean more towards complimenting a partner as they contrast severely with the destruction in the outside world: common themes on the album. And it makes sense: I sometimes tend to think of the LP as a film, and this races towards a cathartic climax, once Moz has left the mix and the instruments just keep the groove going. It’s excellent.
This is a real high point on the album, and counters some of the weaker songs that are interspersed throughout (also, is it just me, or is there a whiff of the Cure is Moz’s delivery, especially the chorus. I mean this in a good way coming from a big Cure fan. Interesting...)
Outstanding track which truly is a 'work of art'; love both versions, but that live version is so superior. To me, on that live version, the opening guitar strum sounds like the start to 'On The Streets I Ran'. 'I see the world
It makes me puke'
