"a million miles away from the usual World Cup song fare, assuredly melancholic, hauntingly sad yet strangely rousing... hits the back of the emotional net with a great piece of build up play from the strummed acoustic guitar and flair from both wings contributed by the lush string section" Norman Records - Single of the week
"a well timed curio about the current Pan-Galactic Soccer Tournament, and it is not half bad. This seems a feat of strange magnificence given our other World Cup musical options………" Drowned in Sound
“an epic, string-laden piece of indie magic, bringing memories of ‘Fear Of Drowning’ era British Sea Power and won’t leave you in tears after yet another penalty shoot out nightmare.” 4/5 God is in the TV
“Yearning and mournful resignation, are the themes. Triumphalism and hubris have been wisely avoided. My personal World Cup 2010 Top Tip if you care more for music than goals” 8/10 Whisperin & Hollerin
“Has about as much to do with the World Cup at heart as Colourbox's Official World Cup Theme - even the sampled commentary is from a non-World Cup game, being of John Barnes' famous goal in the Maracana - but the Hood side project do good things marrying the influence of striped sunset sound of the Go-Betweens, Lucksmiths etc to pre-Ibiza New Order” Sweeping the Nation
