Big and boisterous
on 10 September 2005
Well I loathed their first couple of singles, but this is actually rather good!
If you want to use an NME friendly phrase it's anxious electro-rock, with Sam Endicott graduating to an early Bono impersonation declaiming his desire - "I just want love" he cries over a boisterous 1983 backdrop, replete with hard driving bass. And who can argue with that.
The B-side is a pointless Benny Benassi mix which sucks the life out of the song, but if they continue to rack up the big angst points, they could make a convert out of me yet.
