In an interview published in Les Inrockuptibles in 1995, Morrissey stated "This song was the definitive expression of my change to adulthood, of my maturity. And, to be honest, I was very happy to be able to sing this text, to have reached this state. After this song I could perfectly retire: I've come full circle." [2]

ReviewsEdit

Ned Raggett of AllMusic wrote "Morrissey's quiet purr at the start turns into one of his best, most soaring performances by the end."[1]
