Still has a cool vibe to it but i couldn't listen to it too often.
*****
The choose the wrong title for this song. Cause apart from Johnny Come Home this was IMO, their BEST thing.
******
6 stars

TIL, Fine Young Cannibals had another big hit. I'm glad that it's completely different to "She Drives Me Crazy" and it has a sort of fun vibe to it. Only issue is that the chorus really lets it down, it's not nearly strong enough. 3.5
