Glitter halves the pace for what by his standards is a ballad. Surprisingly it’s still effective, less rabble-rousing but more anthemic – assuming you can turn off your hindsight detectors long enough to get past “So here we are alone” et al. His voice is left badly exposed, though: this slug of woozy defiance needs something meaner than his reedy panting to really work.
