Bearing in mind that when this was released, the band was in disarray. Peter Doherty had been kicked out, and the band made the mistake of carrying on with festival dates (they were appalling; Carl Barat was in no fit state to be playing gigs, and Peter's replacement Anthony Rossomando was a complete prat). In the midst of all this, their new single was released, and hit the top half of the chart.
Does any of this sound familiar? Forgive me; I appear to be suffering from a bad case of déjà vu. Yes, the similarities are spooky. Last summer, the Libertines released their new single 'Don't Look Back Into The Sun', and it reached number eleven in the charts. This summer, with the band in much the same state as they were last year (having been reconciled and then split apart again), they released 'Can't Stand Me Now', and reached number two. What this says about the band, but the problem with the Libertines is that (and this is where my heart goes out to Carlos, John and Gary) the music is now secondary to the soap opera with Peter.
Background aside, this is certainly a classic English pop moment. With the reputation the band has garnered for being very rough around the edges, you wouldn't expect them to be able to write a beautiful pop song that sounds good. Here, they've managed it with honours. With a slow build up starting with the solid beat from Gary's floor tom, the riff gets itself started. Ah yes, the riff. It is the most anthemic riff you are likely to remember for a very long time.
Peter and Carlos are cut from the same cloth as Lennon and McCartney; they sound their best when they both sing on a song. Peter sings the first verse, they sing the chorus together, and then Carl sings a verse, then the chorus twice over. Perfect.

WOW.
Anyone even SLIGHTLY into amazing music should check out this song, better yet, buy 'Up The Bracket' too.
I'm telling you this song raised the bar for me, musically.
Starting of with a smooth drum intro, then kissing your ears with a soft yet scratchy guitar intro (much easier on the ear than 'what a waster'). Slowly building up into one of the most powerful, tear inducing peices of guitar framework Barat and Doherty have ever produced, EVER. then, oh, oh the lyrics..Youll be hummiing "Dont look back into the sun" in your sleep.
Call it what you want- "a summer song", "genius", "powerful" or the "best song ever", Its DEFINITELY well worth the couple of quid theyre sellin it at. Trust me, it WONT leave your CD player.
<Shudders> Scarily good....

This song's really good, and it's not on the album (Up The Bracket). It starts with the drums gently rolling, then they get louder and the bass comes in, then the lead guitar starts a great riff and the lyrics come with a shriek! It's a very possitive, up-beat sounding song that can lift your mood no matter how down you seem. And you get 2 other songs on the CD - they're both demo versions of album tracks and it's interesting to hear what they originally sounded like. So it's well worth the couple of quid you pay.

i have been absolutly hooked on the sound of the libertines since i saw them play live in dingy club supporting six by seven i cant get enough but this single is just fantastic it`s a sun kissed mixture of peter throwing shapes as only he can while warbling in and out of tune and carlos` riff so simple yet so brilliant while later growling in with his deep vocals. the end they say...... i say it`s only just getting started.
