* Heavy promo with Australia's Got Talent and the fact that he's a good performer nonetheless will make this a hit still :( He really has no depth to his music and no versatility. No wonder his debut album which had two top 10's and two top 20's couldn't even get a Gold Cert despite debuting at no. 3.
*** It's a typical Timomatic thing, but after "Parachute"'s success, of course there's no motivation to switch things up. I can find a little bit of potential in this, mainly in that watered-down attempt at a breakdown, but sadly that same melody is repeated in the backing throughout the majority of the song which just overkills it. The rest comes off as borderline self-parody of both himself and the Australian pop industry to me and it just doesn't work (unlike say "Let's Get Ridiculous", which I consider self-parody territory too but it works because Redfoo is well known for that kind of thing while Timomatic has zero image or personality in his music). This also fails in my opinion because it barely has a melody outside of the chorus and the public honestly isn't as dumb as they frequently can seem; I don't see any hit potential in this outside of forced success from the inevitable XF and/or AGT performance and thingy placements and the minor radio success that may follow. I'm interested to see if, assuming this doesn't turn into a genuine hit, Sony will take the memo and give something different and/or better a try or if he'll fall into the same trap as Ke$ha. They've probably got more freedom to do so than Ke$ha's team did/does as Timomatic has no fanbase to risk alienating and being one of five Australian pop artists with success, mainstream radio will probably always play him. [/stream of consciousness that doesn't really belong in this review] Also on a personal level, I like waterfalls and Timomatic did not pay them justice. I hope that if he gets his wish for a waterfall to rain down upon him it provides him some more inspiration for his next downward-motion-noun single. Oh, and I've concluded that the random sound at 2:17 is a Raft Dog guest spot. It's probably a sign of Sony's cheapness, but I'd rather believe in dat Slayftie exposure.
** I can only guess that Timomatic must be into some sort of meditation? He claims that 'waterfalls of your love rain down on [him] now', and as we all know, waterfalls, despite being technically a formation through motion, are very stable in their location, so he must be underneath one. That's all well and good, but if he were recording this song there (which he must have been, emphasis on 'now'), it can't have been good for any of the studio equipment. If I were a harsh person, I could make a comment along the lines of 'which would explain why it sounds so crap', but I'm not the biggest fan of hyperbole and prefer logic, so if this really were recorded underneath a waterfall; it sounds pretty damn good!
The problem however is that Timomatic mentions toasters for some reason. Doesn't he know that they REALLY, shouldn't come into contact with water, perhaps this is his take on one of Nick Cave's murder ballads from the mid-'90s :O Either way, I preferred back when he was singing about cheating on his girlfriend with another girl and then abducting her in a UFO so he can get away from her and cheat on her with yet another girl. Those were better times. Fair to say that in Timomatic's own words, this is 'no "Supersoaker"'. 2.4
