Who doesn’t enjoy a calmly collected kiss-off number? Sure, it doesn’t have the emotional intensity of a tortured Dwight Yoakam record, but there’s something to be said for showing someone the door in a coldly detached way. There are a few too many lines I’ve heard too many times before, particularly the suggestion to lie in the bed you’ve made, and the song’s mood changes abruptly at the end, when the singer suddenly starts growling the title. But overall, this is pretty good.
