"I feel like I'm watching an 80s TV sitcom" is the very first thought that will enter a person's mind that will listen to this track. Later on that feeling changes, but the 80s vibe lingers on. In fact, much of the latter portion of the song feels like it would fit in some sort of post-apocalyptic retro-inspired ending sequence in a musical. The synths are very lush and sweet sounding throughout. The vocalist/singer, while buried beneath layers of instrumentation and synthy goodness, still manages to evoke emotion in his voice and one can hear the lyrics just enough to understand what is going on. While sometimes you cannot hear some of the words, the ambiguity is what makes the song even better, as the listener can fill in the gaps (very My Bloody Valentine's Loveless-like). Just now I've thought of what this song reminds me of - the musical play "We Will Rock You." I feel as though a whole show can be made from this type of music and 80s synth sweetness. A decent 8.”
