I'm not G, admittedly. But it's the one song on that album I don't love.

I agree. It works much better live. The studio version just doesn't have any bite to it.

It’s far too good for G.

It's just a really ugly sounding record isn't it? There's nothing there to like.

It wouldn't sound out of place in a broadway musical, but as a stand-alone song it it's kinda pointless.

As can be said for the vast majority of their recordings. Never enough umph or energy, not helped by May's guitar sound.
