Nice how this one seems to burst out of the blocks. Gets the feet tapping right through.
Documented as a release that returned them to their rock roots. The song feels incomplete for me however without that 20+ second Xanadu-ish/outer space fade out ending, as that was on my first copy of this song.
May rock (in its various forms) live forever! 3.7*
#13 peak in Australia, 1983; #13 peak UK; #19 peak USA.
