Not at their brilliant best, but its enough to suggest there's plenty more where this came from. 5 mile is a good single, but it would appear that if the band continue with these over production values then the very soul and roots of their music could become a forgotten memory.
The chorus is nothing short of excellent, extremely sing-a-long and a nod towards the previous "Pain Killer" release. However, those expecting lovely guitar niches which made "The Optimist" such an exquisite piece of acoustic folk music may well be disappointed. For too much of the song their is a lot of awkward synth and keyboards at the fore, drowning out the very wonder which triggered Olly Knights' and Gale Pardijanian's rise to prominence - simple and sweet guitar melodies.
Despite the shortcomings it is important to note that their lyrical talent remains unquestionable. The song is extremely well written and the music itself is far from catastrophic, but there is a sense here that had they stuck to their roots and left off the over produced fanfare then this could have been a classic.
5 mile is best heard live, where the band's true sound is far more prominent. In all this single is a worthy purchase for the die hard or extremly curious, its neither ground breaking or typical Turin Brakes. A solid single, but its far more recommended that you see them live for best thrills.

Having heard Turin Brakes play this for the first time at V2003 I can honestly say that it is probably their best single yet. It has the same anthemic feel as one of their previous singles, Summer Rain, with a rousing chorus explaining "these are the days that are driving me crazy/These are the days that are driving me insane". Hopefully this single will help propel Olly and Gail further up the charts and gain them deserved recognition.
