    I like it alot. Its like a mix of Brothers blues with El Caminos poppy sound. Better than Fever thats for sure.
    Meh. Not bad, but they can do much better. This sounds like it's been thrown away by the Arctic Monkeys.
    Anty 7
    For better or for worse, their transformation into a full out pop band is complete. I quite like this new song, I hated Fever. The only thing I dislike is the production, it's a bit too much. Especially the bass, it doesn't fit in with the rest. I really like the vocals.
    I really dug it. It wasn't as annoying as Fever is. It just sounds like a good song to relax to and have in the background
