I can listen to this song non stop. best alt j song, and one of my favorites of all time by any band

It's weird that trying to describe how beautiful this song is is making me kind of emotional- it's just the most perfect song.

Taro is amazing. Too good to be put into words. At first I got hooked on the rhythm of the song and I already loved the song. Once I Googled what the lyrics actually meant, the song just had more emotion and depth. Definitely better than the hip hop music nowadays.

One of the most beautiful songs I've ever listened to. Simple as that.

This is my favorite song, and it should be in the top 5. the song is so melodic and is so addicting. one of their very best songs, honestly. you won't be disappointed.

Clearly their best song. The whole album is a work of art but this song is just so...musical.

Easily should be in top 3. My personal favourite of the fantastic album. - PenderK

This is by far their best song from This is All Yours, it may strive away from their typical sound, but this song is way too damn catchy to go unnoticed. Fantastic chorus, excellent guitar rifts all around, definitely deserves to be in top 10.

First heard this through Captain America: Civil War. Fit perfectly!

Great song that you can just feel happy listening to

This song sounds like it came from a commercial

The Contenders

11 Nara

The people below said it better than me but this is not only my favourite Alt-J song - but also just one of my favourite songs of any genre, why? Because its beautiful, complex and you get lost in it every single time. Probably in my top 10 songs I've ever heard and I'm more of a metal guy.

┬┐11? This is the ultimate #1.

Stick around after Arrival in Nara because this is where things get epic. At about the three minute mark, this song just explodes into a wall of thick synths, twinkly percussion and eerie vocals that you'll lose yourself to.

Amazing song. Huge alt-J fan and I'd have to say this might be there most beautiful and complex song. Love the tempo changes. At the 2:57 mark the song just explodes with the most amazing instrumental alt-J have ever done.

I love this song! So much emotion in the song and music video. - A.F

This is an extremely underrated song that is absolutely beautiful. Though the start may be slow, those who are resilient and patient will be pleasantly treated to a masterpiece.

What a complete song. Alt J claims this is their best work so far

This album might just be their best work yet...

I like it


This will go higher and higher. When that choir kicks in I just melt.

Dark, scary, wanton, and foreboding...then out of nowhere, epiphany, harmonies that surge upwards, and outwards. The warmth and epic scale is unprecedented. A true Masterpiece!
