a classic pop song. a huge, sweeping chirus, fantastic production, a great string arrangement, vocals to die for, and great guitar playinmg. the best song Suede have ever recorded, from one of the best albums of the 90's
20 Aug 01 ·delicado: Yeah, this is definitely one of my favorite Suede songs, and the album has grown on me. I still really like some of their earliest tracks though. Can't get into the heavily polished newer stuff at all.
very simply put, this song is interesting. it can almost be split in two, the monotone first part and the almost screeching end. the whole song conveys hopelessness (or is it helplessness) in a very precise way.
the obligatory references to the city are here as well as an interesting verse, 'you can only go so far for womankind' which always reminded me of 'i've lost my faith in womanhood'--a bit in the smiths' "pretty girls make graves".
