Hmmm…hopefully it’s a grower, but kind of feel like I could skip it on the album already (& I usually skip nothing! 🤷🏻*♂️)

Overall I think it's very good on the first few listens, though when the "The secret he has missed" sections come about, they don't blend in with the rest of the song too well for me.

2:22 reminds me of the start of the Boxes & Lists solo in a slowed down fashion.

Can’t decide if I really like it or really hate it. Perhaps a grower then?

In the age of #BeKind it’s very difficult to say much here but can they not just stick to lyric videos from now on?

Not impressed with the video. Again.
Really hope they try someone else next time other than Kieran Evans.
Nothing personal but I just don't get the intentional boredom vibe. At least I think it's intended!

The song is pleasant.
I think that's the word that I might use to describe the album at a guess.

Really liked it on first listen but already love it after repeated plays. Sounds light and bouncy at first, yet I think it’s deceptively densely layered both musically and lyrically.

The video is beautiful too.

Every single song on this album’s going to have that Abba piano triplet rhythm thing, I can feel it in my waters.

Really hope I’m wrong because it’s already over-bearing.
