Hated it on first listen - 4 or 5 listens later I've grown to like it - very catchy had the lyrics in my head all day
I like it when that happens. A lot of music is crafted to make you like it right out of the gate. The problem with that is that the music can start sounding old. I like songs that grow on you.

Exactly. If you like it straight out of the gate it could be awesome, or just sound familiar so your brain recognises it as something you like but not new. I like some prog artists, susch as Geoff Tate, Dream theater etc and their entire albums can take multiple listens to get. Once the time is invested the rewards will arrive.

I got 15 seconds in and it just didn't catch fire for me. I've waited 43 years for Alice to go mainstream (once you hit the run out groove of Lace and Whiskey, it seemed to me the perfect ending for Alice Cooper). I was expecting we would be introduced to Vince Furnier, pop singer/songwriter post L&W. Such a fine lyricist/vocalist...maybe he's come to that metamorphosis now.

Opposite for me. More I hear it the more I wonder why this didn’t go on a Vampires album.

Spotify just shared my most frequently played music of 2020. Three HV tracks in the first 30 listed and all off Rise too and only one cover.

Good to see the single hitting the Radio 2 playlist. Whether you like the track or not it’s surely good to know that over 12 million will get to hear it a few times.

I personally love this track, sort of School's Out meets Department Of Youth. It's quirky, has an underlying sense of sarcasm and a great melody to boot. What's not to like in my book!

Not my sort of thing, but potential for being a hit. :/

Whilst it was good news for the single to part of Radio 2's playlist, it is the C playlist with the A playlist being the one the presenters play the most. Alice has been selected to remain on the C playlist for a second week.
'Our Love...' was played 3 times over the course of the week, maybe it will improve this week!!!

I actually heard it on the radio the other day whilst driving with my wife. I told her that this was the new AC single and she didn't believe me. She said "Why does he sound so young?"!

Have to say, it has grown on me somewhat.

Actually heard it on the radio for the first time. On the Steve Wright show. Brilliant to hear a new Alice song on the airwaves, even with Wrighty doing his usual and talking all over the top of it.
