****
Good song.
***
Boring and like GYC just not as good and quite repetitive. Not to say 1D and The Wanted aren't good both have produced songs i like, however i do miss boybands who actually harmonised as opposed to 5 guys all singing the same song.
The Wanted seem stuck in a dance pop party band pigeonhold at the moment with the success of GYC overseas but it would be good to see a mix up between slow and beat driven releases again from them soon. 6th UK top ten. 16 weeks in the UK top 100. UK#2 and Ireland#4. US#50. 270,000 copies sold in the UK.

Their fourth biggest selling single in the UK.

This reminds me of another song, I just can't remember which one...not that it matters anyway. It's a good song, their second best behind Glad You Came.
****
A pretty good track and one of their better singles. The fact that it was written/produced by Example is blatantly clear through the sound of the track.
***
Average. Glad You Came was much better! The chorus is so annoying.
****
It's decent, but won't go down as one of their best, that would have to be Warzone followed by Glad You Came. It is a bit samey, but still very catchy.
**
Very unremarkable track. And one of them randomly grew facial hair. Sounds too much like Glad You Came and the chorus is horrible. I don't hate it though, but I don't see it being big. Oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh...

It's OK. Decent 'O' anthem.
*****
Catchy.
***
I hated Glad You Came, and this is just a re-hash of that. That said, I think this is still annoyingly more catchy. There's not much to credit it for, same beat, boring vocals and subpar lyrics, with way too much repetition.

But ever since watching Ice Age 4, the song has been stuck in my head nonstop for the following few days so I decided maybe I should give this song a chance, but its repetitiveness is just making it too difficult to enjoy, which makes me wonder I even bothered trying to like it in the first place. I can occasionally like this.
**
Something a bit disjointed about this, dislikey.
****
Decent track.

It took me a while to really get into this song. At first I thought it was a good song but nothing special. Over time its really grown on me and now I think its their best song after "Glad You Came".
****
Not too bad I suppose.
*****
Very good. I find this has a summery feel. Better than 'Glad You Came'. 4.7*
****
Solid track but is slowly becoming more stale and already sounds dated.

Peaked at #28 on my personal chart.
****
Surprisingly I liked it then and still like it. The oh oh repetition can be a little annoying but the rest is good. Their second best after "Glad You Came".

Catchy and decent. Much better then Glad You Came.
