Gossip - 'Perfect World'

Ridiculous, arm-flailing power balladry

Beth Ditto does Bonnie Tyler. Christ alive, is the world ready for such an Earth-realigning moment? Close your eyes, grab your fists and find some strategically placed crepe fabric to swish through, because this is three minutes and 49 seconds of the most ridiculous, gothic-window-silhouetted, arm-flailing, candlelit power balladry the world has seen since 1983.
