Ever heard the tired cliches of Embrace the ballad band, dreary embrace who are as musically diverse as someone who maybe just maybe prefers margarine instead of butter on their toast?
Forget all of that for this, a truely masterful song rising and falling with insistant yet simultaneously graceful guitar riffs and drumming beats, capped off by an outstanding vocal by Danny, a truely misunderstood and underrated vocalist.
Nope, its a soaring powerful rock pop song with real energy and musical grace
Nope, when your think it going to settle into a particular groove and stay there, it changes pace, mood and tone at a moments notice.
Playing it safe?
Nope, kudos to a band who release a world cup song and then after the disappointing competition, they release "you can hit the target every time!" Ironic dont you think
Even if youve bought the great album that this is included on, Embrace's B-sides as proved by those on the WC song such as Love order etc. are better than some bands' A-sides
