**
Disappointing single by Silverchair. Overshadowed better songs from Young Modern.
******
(one of) Their greatest moment(s) so far, the chorus is simply enormous. Incredible lyrics that reflect the highs and lows of Daniel John's roller-coaster life.

Completely terrible. Boring, a totally horrible step in the wrong direction for what was a fantastic band.

i love silverchair but i still dont really like this hasnt grown on me
*****
I'm too young to be familiar with Silverchair's early works but this is quite good and I can understand why it is so popular.
******
Deserved all the success it got, excellent track.
***
average. liked it when it came out but it died on me pretty fast, and the clip is so crap
******
brilliant song,one of silverchair's best
****
Pretty good!
******
After intially hating i really like this track, one they'll be remembered for.

Less americanized than their early work, but surprisingly not as good as their only work! A good song in its own right though
*****
I love it.
**
I prefer their old stuff .
****
I did get sick of it, but I think it is a track that shows positive progression of the band.
*
Terrible.
******
Great Australian modern rock. Certainly the best thing I've heard from them.
*****
This is a great song no doubt, although personally not of top-shelf quality.
A key thing for me here is the issue of the progression of the band in this song. The disappointment is the loss of the rawness from earlier material, but being a positive song this was probably intentional.
I remember being very happy at its debut at #1 and holding it for a while, but I was very bored when it hung around the Top 50 for too long.
*****
Great return, though I preferred 'Reflections Of A Sound' and 'If You Keep Losing Sleep'.
*****
5 stars
****
It's really no surprise that they copped a lot and were called sell outs by their fans. A shame really because I much prefer this style to their earlier stuff. This is highly enjoyable and the lyrics are great, deserved #1 imo". Destroys their other two ARIA #1s as far as I'm concerned.

Was average at the time because of the overplay but
years later it's now slightly above average. 3 - 3.5.
*****
Great song. I'm very happy with its success and I like it more than "Tomorrow".
******
Initially didn't like this because it was played to oblivion, but incredible now. I can't deny that the chorus is absolutely huge.
