    like the song but man I feel bad for the drum and bass, guy had to play the same riff the whole time. to me it seemed like the dude on keys went way out of range and into untimely dissidence. not the good floydian kind, he played it cool and faked it but that was painful to watch.

    3:15 - Girl in the background doesn't *get it* obviously. Wouldn't be the first girl, that's for sure. It's certainly not the male of the species supporting Bum Direction, Katy Cherry, Miley Virus, Britney Rears, Cheryl Mole etc.

    Look, James Blake is so important, and any fool who says otherwise, is a fool. He is the 2013 version of Stevie Winwood, and I can think of no greater compliment. I refuse to compromise, if you don't get it, you are deaf......

    I like the song but it should either be shorter or less repetitive, I think.
