AllMusic Review by

Besides the engagingly off title song, one of the highlights of Barafundle and a near-perfect definition of a summery pop/rock song as has ever been done, two further tracks cropped up on Gorky's first major-label single. "No One Looked Around" is a fairly gentle little number, a bit of violin adding to the calm piano/folk rock vibe of the song -- it's not one of the band's utter highlights, but it's an enjoyable listen if encountered. "Morwyr o Hyd yn Lladd eu Hun ar y Tir," in English "Soldiers Still Killing Themselves on the Land," is a more distinct affair, given a low-key, slightly spooky initial arrangement on the verses but pumped up with a slightly more rollicking yet still dramatic chorus. The music nicely fits the mysterious lyrics about winter, Jesus, and fate, though, admittedly, only the Welsh-fluent will catch that aspect of the music.
