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 featuring three rare songs -- this set adds some remixes, the high profile one coming from German ambient favorite Ulrich Schnauss. His mix glitters and spins, with filigree and chimes, while DJ Waldo adds a simmering Moombahton beat. It's left to Digital Dog to put on the cha-cha heels and finally take the track to the dancefloor with their safe but satisfying house remix.
