To my ears, this is a crooner ala Tony Bennett style.
I'll be honest with you, I wasn't expecting this.
And I've never found much of anything redeeming about Tony Bennett's style!
This song has yet to grab me the way "Hello Sunshine" has. The topic has basically the same as "Girls In Their Summer Clothes" and the music is too reminiscent of a lot of what I didn't care for about WOAD.
Honestly, I would have preferred to hear the entire Western Stars disc from start to finish - as a whole - rather than selected tracks. Hearing random songs ahead of the album's release can really throw a fan off. To me, it's like, "Is this the best stuff on it, or merely a random sample whetting the appetite for something better?"
Agree with a lot of that. Hello Sunshine is better. Whilst I find this enjoyable and I did straight up, and I like it when he really sings (coz a lotta people don’t think he can) it’s essentially a pop tune ala Girls...
also prefer hearing the album all at once...they shoulda stopped after one teaser/taster track, Hello Sunshine and then the album release mid June.
