Strong instrumental rock opener, intended to attract immediate attention. Fast muted guitar and arpeggiated piano sets the energetic mood, followed by hard drums and electric guitar for the main chorus. A gentler verse section of broken guitar chords leads to the epic hit of the returning chorus, ending with the atmospheric piano arpeggios from the intro. A big, positive statement of power, resilience and achievement.
Quirky and upbeat track with a nostalgic, homely feel. Rooted to a walking double bass line and jazzy swing beat, and filled out with silky strings, it's the flute and glockenspiel that take the melody to a new level of kitsch - a playful highlight accentuated by regular fills and breaks to keep its diversity and momentum interesting. A ray of sunshine in a perfect world bubble.
