AllMusic Review by

The third single from the Pet Shop Boys' 2012 album Elysium slowly but surely pumps along at a "Love Comes Quickly" pace, and shares that early single's wistful feel, even when the hook is the positive and pleasant "It's taken me all of my life to find you." Maybe it's because with PSB, heartache is always waiting round the corner, but whatever the reason, this is comfortable sweetness without too much sugar, good for headphones and basking in the warmth of a new love. Released in two different bundles -- the other bundle being full of remixes -- this first set adds three more non-dancefloor PSB cuts to the single, starting with "Listening," the duo's own version of a song they recently cut with a-ha member Morten Harket.
