Critical reception[edit]

In a review of The Minutes, AllMusic picked the song as one of two tracks that "remotely suggest Yaz". They described the song as "jaunty" and "pulsing", and "about resilience in the most difficult of times".[2] Digital Spy described the song as a "light and fun Yazoo-flecked number that showcases the pop talents of producer Guy Sigsworth",[3] while musicOMH felt the song "acts as the ultimate crossover between Yazoo-era and current Moyet". They noted the "fantastic sounding '80s-style high-tempo loops" and Moyet's "mature sounding vocal".[4]

Liverpool Sound and Vision picked the song as a "standout" from the album.[5] PopMatters commented the song "sounds like Daft Punk on holiday in Essex",[6] while Record Collector described the song as "bass-driven dance minimalism".[7]
