Decent effort but the singers vocals get on my nerves a bit. Plus I've never really been a fan of their music anyway so it was doubtful I would enjoy this a lot.

Excellente track van "Empire Of The Sun"!! Na een periode van 4 jaar niets meer van hen te hebben gehoord komen ze opnieuw met een goed nummer!! Exact 5 sterren!!

I like it. Not outstanding.

Geen hoogvlieger en af en toe een beetje herhalend, maar zeker een redelijk elektronisch plaatje.

Ik ruik een toekomstig 3FM Megahit. Zomerse topper.

It's impossible to fairly rate this without inevitably having my views influenced by my excitement (or lack thereof) for new Empire of the Sun material. I will try my best.

In 2008, Empire of the Sun burst onto the scene as a side project between members of The Sleepy Jackson & Pnau. Uncharacteristic of many side projects, Empire of the Sun expanded upon its components and had a sound that was fresh and exciting. Lock in a couple killer singles and bam, this side project turned out to be bigger than the members' main projects.

Here comes the problem. It's been nearly 5 years since that first album, and in that time, their brand of indie synth pop has become a trend which became passé quite a while ago in my view. Now Empire of the Sun are back, but still riding on that same sound which originally made them stand out, but now just makes them part of the crowd. Is it any better than the next Gypsy and the Cat, Strange Talk, Panama or Gold Fields song? Not really, but having built up a bigger profile, I'm not surprised that they're able to outperform their contemporaries in the charts. Personally I like the melody of the repeated 'Alive''s, but the rest just passes right through me as filler.

But to reiterate, my review is likely not unbiased and therefore a bit rubbish.

I can see myself getting into this eventually, I dig the chorus already and the verses are okay.

Niet zo goed als de voorganger, maar zeker geen slechte plaat!

It's not their career best that's for sure, but it's still a great song. It has a great uplifting vibe about it and would been single material had it featured on their debut album.

Glad to see it crack the top 50 but it's average.

Not outstanding, but enjoyable likewise.

Just not feeling it. It kinda just breezes past you without you realising that its happening and then it's done.

Qua sound lijken de mannen van Empire of the Sun weinig te zijn opgeschoten in 4 jaar. Het klinkt namelijk alsof dit nummer nog een overblijfsel was van de opnamesessies van het vorige album "Walking on a Dream". Dat hoeft niet erg te zijn, maar kwalitatief kan dit ook niet tippen aan de singles van dat album. Het refrein is nog wel aardig, maar valt vooral op omdat het zo storend repetitief is. Verder kabbelt het nummer lekker voort, maar wordt het nergens ook maar een beetje spannend. Daarom is dit een extreem veilige keuze als single, want de 3fm-adepts zullen het direct kunnen waarderen. Ik had zelf echter wel wat meer verwacht.

A little too annoying and repetitive for my liking.

Great return for the guys. Already my second favourite behind 'We Are The People'. I wish it went a big longer at the end.

***
A little bit disappointing IMO. Sounds like so many things I've heard before, but I can't quite put my finger on which song...

'We Run The Nite' by Tonite Only perhaps?

I do like this song and found it really enjoyable in a club. Shame it didn't chart better.

I think they sound very MGMT.

Chemmical

It's listenable but disappointing.

Not bad, actually pretty cool. I'll give it a 4.

Average, never been a fan of the band.

Average but not their worst.

It took a longggg time for me to warm to this but you can't escape that anthem of a chorus.
Unfortunately it already sounds dated and belongs with their previous material which it really doesn't stand up to.

Topped my personal chart for 1 week.

Came in at #23 on my TOP 200 OF 2013.

Interesting but seriously doesn't have the potential to become a huge hit.

Rather average return to be honest.

Not great. 2.5*.
