    Yes!
    I voted yes.. I think it's one the best songs off the last 2 albums..!
    It also works well live, even though I'm glad they don't overplay it

    I actually do.  Live it seems like it’s hard for Ed to hit the high notes, but I enjoy the song.

    You're not funny.
    Anything you lose from being honest
    You never really had to begin with.


    Sometimes it's not the song that makes you emotional it's the people and things that come to your mind when you hear it.

    Is there a hell to the fucking no option. It's beyond atrocious :shudder:

    My two fav PJ songs post-Binaural are Sirens and the Fixer

    sirens has amazing lyrics and there’s nothing wrong with an 80s sound every once in a while

    Sirens studio version yes but don't think it comes across very well live.
    Agree on the lyrics.  Maybe it's an age thing but definitely getting more reflective now as Ed clearly is.

    At first I was not a fan, as typical with most songs off of these last three albums. But right now, I'm honestly super in love with all of it. It's the pre show hype maybe. But I can't get enough PJ at this point.

    The food stuff I like the most is cheese.
    This track is all of the cheese.
    Down neon streets the streaker streaks.
    The speaker speaks,
    but the truth still leaks,
    Where even Donald Trump has got soul.

    If we're talking studio version, then especially no. That beginning is an immediate skip for me.

    Sirens live is a different beast entirely! Please listen to Sirens live at the Leeds, UK show 2014 (I think) - the crowd and jam at the end is just amazing!

    I would agree that it is different and better live, but when live it is only so-so instead of bad for me. I'm not complaining though at least it's PJ!

    Live or studio it is awful. Trite whining drivel of a song.

    The song makes my wife very happy so if she's happy i'm happy even though it is just ok to me.  ;)

    Studio version isn’t bad and like the message. Not really looking to hear it live though.

    It's a good song but I can take it or leave it. It's nice live but I don't hanker to hear it - nor would I be dissapointed to hear it.

    Intro / beginning reminds me of "Inside of You" from Sarah Marshall / Get Him to the Greek Infant Sorrow / Aldous Snow / Russell Brand
    Solo reminds me of "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" - Poison

    I hate November Rain and I can't believe it is the most viewed rock video of the 90's. Yuck!

    It's ok. I liked it at first, but I can easily pass on hearing it. I'll admit, it was my piss break song at my last show. Just can't get in to it live. One of the few, if not only PJ songs that does nothing for me live. How anyone can use Even Flow as their piss break floors me. Such a rocking song from start to finish.
    It's a hopeless situation...
