Reviewing based on the original album version.

Umm, what? Now I get what heaps of people have been saying. Terrible beat and the whole thing is way too cheesy for me with not much to get out of it. Shame.

I don't mind it, better than "Youngbloods" at least.

So technically I thought that this was the Scarlett version until recently, but this is exactly what I said in my review of the Scarlett version:

I don't usually like most rap music by males, despite the odd Jay Z, Kanye or Eminem track (which usually feature an artist I'm fond of in the chorus), and I especially don't care for Australian rap music, in fact, I've never liked one of this kind since "Boys Like You" by 360. However, this is actually great.

I don't know what it is but the backing is really awesome and the rapping isn't too bad at all (besides the "bulldog" line :P wtf?). Even the chorus which I seemed to like on first impression has grown on me even more and no longer sounds atrocious. Nevertheless, despite this song's goodness, I most likely won't get into any more of Illy's music anyway, and it still hasn't improved my opinion on Australian rap.
