The single the very band loves to hate to the present day. While it may seem the most untypical of the Cocteau Twins' releases - mainly due to the fact the production duties were handed over to Alan Rankine of The Associates (who, in his own right, did a splendid job here) - it is by all means a true, furious, rock solid offering.

Of the two officially known versions of the title song, the 12" version fares way better due to a longer intro, aided with the amazingly intense "Laugh Lines" and "Hazel" (the latter featured also in the group's earlier 1983 Peel Session, that version backed by the amazing Gordon Sharp).
