One of the only times I will ever say I don't like the gang background vocals.

I like this song, no issue with the GV. What don't you like?

That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting." 

I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?

Well this album's really quite good, isn't it? The ballad, 'How to love' is a bit of a skip, but the rest of the album is all very good. Favourite track is this one-

But overall, it's a really good melodic rock album. Should appeal to plenty of folk here, I dare say.
