Well, this is the handwritten note I had jotted down as the list of predicted answers when I posted this:

1. Awful, terrible etc
2. God you Brits liked some shit
3. Fucking hell, Saffron, wasn't she gorgeous etc


So I'm glad to see that I was at least one third correct

I was going to say that I was thankful for having never heard it until it got to the chorus, which I recognised, so now all I can say is "It's shit!"

I think it is OK. Sort of shouty and girl powery, and it doesn't have even a shred of a tune. But I can hear that it is the sort of thing that would get you pumped up on a night out if you were 12 years old.

Dreadful. And that other hit they had, even worse. Shouty and annoying. No redeeming qualities. Next............

Fucking hell, Saffron, wasn't she gorgeous?
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

It's a bit meh; not something i'd actively ever search out. Made me want to listen to Transvision Vamp for some reason.

Never heard it before. I'd put it on a playlist for a long drive.

I own the single and last played it in the middle of a 90s binge. It ain't great but it's an enjoyable couple of minutes with a pretty good hook. And while the video was annoying the song still sounds good.

It's perfectly cynical cash in pop, where you can see all of the joins. No one will get anything out of my damning it with faint praise.

Even the name of the act seems like an ad man's version of Elastica.

It's alright, as far as pop songs with a hint of rock go. It's a bit like Atari Teenage Riot deloused, shaved, and put in suits for a car advert. Which is better than most mainstream/indie, I guess.
