A track inspired by The Disintegration Loops? If he'd bothered to be that innovative and more open minded with Beady Eye, perhaps they wouldn't have been such a failure. Anyway, it sounds like the old Andy Bell has returned and not the derivative dad rock extraordinaire incarnation. Thank fuck for that.

So I've made up my mind, it's not a great song. The song tries so hard to be a pop song like Twisterella, but in doing so it sacrifices all of the hallmarks of Ride. Where are the layers upon layers of wah-wah'ed grooves? Ride's strength has always been in finding those certain chord progressions that you could play forever, with a simple melody sung over it. Not in writing pop songs.
I don't mind it, although it's not great. Untitled #1 & #3 were a lot more promising, I guess they wanted to go for the easy 'n catchy route for the first single.
That lead guitar after the intro is good though (the intro, erm, not really).
Intro riff is great but not a big fan of the chorus. Nevertheless this wasn't the promising track I liked anyway but it isn't a bad song. Star Roving is immediately a better single (that one took me awhile to truly appreciate, because I wasn't used to the fast paced composition of it).
Not a bad song, but the intro is quite appalling. The main guitar that goes throughout the verses has a lovely tone and it's pretty catchy. Chorus isn't good. Like some said, expectations were high for a proper shoegaze comeback... let's wait and see.
