Love the use of 5/4 time

Dude, lay off the G4! It has a bad resonant frequency in my head. Gives me a headache. Otherwise, nice voice.

I think you are mistaken, I think 99.5% of this is not in falsetto. The, "hoo-hoo," bits are, but not the rest.

Unlike most of his contemporaries who all think singing falsetto sounds good.  Nobody, from the Bee Gees and Chris Martin to Sam Smith sounds good singing falsetto - in my opinion.

I am not talking about those lucky men who have a naturally high range e.g. Robert Plant, Neal Young, Rod Stewart, Jon Anderson  et al.

I mean those that sing in their normal voice then switch up into falsetto.

Good on you Hozier, lets hear it for the male voice in its normal range and not the castrated squawking that passes for popular singing these days.

Very nice song, has a classic feel to it, well sung by Hozier.

Cool track from an overall listenable album. Easy 7 from my ears.

I like it.

Might I suggest that that readers/listeners check out Wyvern Lingo, a group of 3 girls who also form Hozier's band.

6 -> 7. Probably the best track on the album.

 I highly highly recommend giving this album an honest play-through. Enchanting, rocking, Earthly and dark; he has this interesting ability to make even the feel-good tracks feel somewhat desperate and brooding, in a good way.

Thanks. I was trying to remember where I knew the name 'Hozier' from. Not a bad song. Might have to pick up the album.

There's a very pleasant warmth to this song.

Shucks... I've heard this tune enough now that it's kinda irritating to the ears...  :-(
It has run its course.

Nice tune. Good singer and his melody has a good hook. Starting at a 7. 

 
Ditto. Instant 7 with room for more.
