Finally, a solid, soulful pop record with a great tune. As you'd expect with Alison Moyet's stunning voice, the singing is big and heartfelt. No screeched histrionics. No scattergun search-for-a-note singing style beloved of modern R&B clones. The intro's lone guitar (faintly redolent of Nirvana's "All Apologies") leads to a beautifully restrained verse and on to a huge, memorable chorus. The arrangement is building all the time - guitars, bass, drums, percussion and majestic strings.
This powerful pop single is Moyet's finest in many a year. Whether the playlist Tristrams will favour it over the latest reality show poptart remains to be seen.
