I've heard the small part of this track while watching Black Mirror's Bandersnatch. There's one ending, where it is played in the background. That's the first ending I've got in and It got me. You feel it right away, you know, from the very first sounds that that's it... I've Googled the song name and did not listen to it until I've got the vinyl yesterday. I've been waiting for it for about month or so and finally got it... And it's perfect... Perfect for me - I'm 29, few months till the third decade. I feel sad and happy and it's beautiful. I feel it's so close to my soul, whatever it is...

...And I'm talking about O Superman here. I've listened to the second one as well. Well, all I can say is it's just not my style - I felt it's too sexy for me. I can definitely say it's not bad, I just don't feel that sexy at this point in my life.
