-- Metro: The lifeblood of pop still courses through the PSB's veins, and this is one of the most vital cuts from their recent album: it marries Xenomania and Johnny Marr to a disco beat, and it takes a swizzle stick to your heart.
-- Digital Spy: A welcome offering in a renaissance year for the boys. 3/5
-- BBC Music: A joyous reminder that Neil Tennant is one of the few middle-aged men still able to tap into the inner teenager at the heart of great pop.
-- The Singles Jukebox: A gorgeous cocktail disco stomp to rival some of Very's giddiest pinnacles. 5.58/10
-- Planet Sound: Lyrically similar to I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind Of Thing in its surprise at finding new love, musically it reworks the simple pathos of Love Comes Quickly. Nothing could be finer. 8/10
