NME Best 100_2000s (2012):
No.11 - The lead-off track from their second album showcased The Libertines' gift for combining high romance with scuffed, gutter-level realism. Hence we get the deft poetry of the first verse ("Your light fingers through the dark…") punctured by the viciousness of the second: "The world kicked back a lot fuckin' harder". Like all the best Libertines songs, this tale of an unravelling relationship can be read as a statement on the band's own imminent collapse ("Have we enough to keep it together?") – though, surprisingly, it wasn't all their own work. The middle-eight was penned by Pete and Carl's partner-in-debauchery, Mark Keds of early-'90s indie grafters the Senseless Things.

 

NME - Top 150 from 1996 to 2011:
No.26 - Never has rawness of frayed emotion been captured on record as urgently and accurately as it was on the second-to-last single The Libertines would ever release. The frustration Pete Doherty and Carl Barat felt at the un-workability (to say the least) of their relationship was played out over arguably their finest musical moment. More frustrating than the ins and outs of their relationship was the fact that, as they were articulating what they were about to lose, they were demonstrating what a huge loss it would be, before they split later in 2004. You don't get that with The Kooks.
