"Closer" - Thief

I've got one complaint about this song. It's too damn short!

Thief has decided to stand up to a poor-excuse-for-a-lover in the song "Closer." So they tell her, "I'm too tired with watching you ... fuck me over."

It all sounds like an epiphany - a "it hit me like a ton of bricks, you've been mistreating me all along" moment. You know, the straw that broke the camel's back, the enough is enough, the "if I stay here I'ma catch a case" moment. 

Thief clearly had a moment. It wasn't a good one, and they put it to a song. Get ready for a ride of tight vocals and a great beat that could as easily have a radio edit as it could have tons of remixes. While it's electronica and destined for some club play, it deserves a lot more. 

Heard the song; bought the song.

Like I said, my only beef is that the song is too friggin' short. But sometimes - especially when it comes to telling someone to fuck off - less is actually much more.
