REVIEWS
Average points: 3.91 (Reviews: 11)
****
Something a bit different from them and it works nicely. A rather daring choice with Montaigne as vocalist but her chorus is pretty good. 3.75
****
An interesting song and Montaigne's chorus is quite good. A pleasant surprise.
*****
Despite being in the industry for over 20 years, Hilltop Hoods continue to provide fresh material and high quality Australian hip-hop. This is no exception, and is a very pleasant track from them.
****
annehmbarer Aussie Hip Hop, aufgerundete 3.5…
****
I was reluctant to give this a listen at first, and I don't really know why. The music is just great, and it carries the whole thing.

It still feels odd that this has already had a #2 peak though. It doesn't feel like it has been that big, especially considering some of the other songs in the charts now which haven't had such a high peak.
****
Nicht schlecht.
****
A bit more enjoyable then what I'm used to from Hilltop Hoods so that's a positive. Quite fun.

Awesome track. Montaigne's chorus is the highlight.

Hilltop Hoods have a fascinating career trajectory that is often reflected in their lyrics. Look back to 2003's "The Calling" when they were making a name for themselves but hadn't really broken through in any substantial way. "The Nosebleed Section" is all about being shit broke after all. They've only gone on to get bigger and bigger with each successive album, which is something to behold considering "The Hard Road" went to #1 anyway. By that point, the lyrics are still everyman relatable, but there's a drive for further success. Their next lead single after all was called "Chase That Feeling", and after that album was an even bigger success they had "Still Standing". So by the end of the 2000s, they're already cemented as among the biggest names in Australian music let alone hip-hop. And from there they lap it up with celebratory anthems ike "I Love It" and "Cosby Sweater", which in these territories were lapped up in a big way with triple and quadruple platinum sales.

And yet leave Australia and no one knows who the heck they are. Even with hip-hop firmly the music of the youth of today, there's just no room for Australians on the international scene. So it would seem that "1955" is ever so apt, given that it's about how they're stuck in an isolated hole that's behind the rest of the world who have no interest in it. They're from Adelaide after all, and we all know that's a hole. There's something charming to hear this semi-ironic celebration anthem.

It's also kind of interesting that what has become the Hoods' highest charting single is one where Pressure doesn't even have a verse. I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out Suffa handled a lot of the production as well. Perhaps the 2nd most important member of the Hilltop Hoods family is actually Suffa's wife. If you go way back, the beloved sample on "The Nosebleed Section" was discovered because Suffa heard it on a shopping trip that she forced him to go on, and now here, it was her suggestion to get Montaigne to sing the hook on this song. Given the timing, I'd like to think that it harks to when "Clip My Wings" was being a wonderful presence on the radio in 2015. 4.2
**
I honestly don't really like this song at all. Montaigne's voice is quite annoying in it as well.

▒ Ongelooflijk dat dit ø rap / zang plaatje in Australië uit februari 2016 zo'n grote hit is geweest ??? Maar goed, zo zie je maar ☺!!!
