I kept waiting for the drummer (drum machine?) to move on from the "Be My Baby" beat, the string synth is cheesy, and I don't know why there's so much slapback/reverb on the vocals.

Otherwise: nice enough.

Don't think much of the production, which is a bit too drenched and ploddy.

This one suffers a bit for it too, but is lovely:

Nez's voice has aged very gracefully.
