Time Goes By So Slow was a piece of 24-carat genius, with an intricate arrangement and a performance that sounded as though it was so breathless it might collapse at any moment until they reached the amazing middle section, with that wonderful jazzy chord at the end of each little sequence. Nobody's Perfect's opener, Waiting For Lorraine, features picked guitars of a kind that echoed later on in the playing of Johnny Marr, and a little four-chord riff that is just so Smiths-esque (the album was written three years before The Smiths even formed).
"Steve Perrin wrote melancholy tunes with flaky, angular guitar parts [like] the bitter whirlpool guitar of Waiting For Lorraine." - David Quantick.
"Steve Perrin and Adrian Wright's sensational guitar partnership is constant drama, wound so tight you can't see a join. Either one is prepared at any time to spin off into breathless cosmic space." - Paul Morley.
"Time Goes By So Slow sounds like 60s psych." - Stephen Morris.
"On Time Goes By So Slow, oh how the guitars drop out, leaving the song wallowing in lonely synths and the saddest drum beat you're ever heard." - Ian Pointer, Snappish Productions.
"On Time Goes By So Slow the spiky guitars and hollow synth tones presage hundreds of UK indie bands to follow" - John Hagelston, Damn Fine Day.
