"Decent version of classic track"
by Nicola Wilson for remotegoat on 03/10/11

Intrigued as to whether this would be a new version of the ever-popular Labelle track or something completely different, I listened to it "cold" without reading anything about Lady M and the Mr Men.

On reading up on them afterwards it is no surprise that they are an experienced wedding band, hailing from Sussex. In essence this is a straighforward version of the original pop song. The harmonies are good, musicianship clean and there is a strong lead vocal from Lady M, though this displays some signs of strain on the "big notes", and I did feel that momentum was lost a little in the bridge.

There is nothing particularly new or different in this version, but then perhaps that's not the aim. It's a confident and polished presentation of a much-covered party classic, that I'm sure would get or keep people up on the dancefloor and belting out the lyrics along with the band.
