Critical reception[edit]

Nick Levine of Digital Spy gave the song a positive review stating:

David Jordan's debut single, 'Place In My Heart', might not have been a hit, but the Barnet boy still has the whiff of a superstar about him. Did you catch his set at The Royal Variety Performance last month? Those lithe, swivelling hips put Mick Jagger to shame.

If 'Sun Goes Down' doesn't propel the Trevor Horn protégé towards the top of the charts, it's likely that nothing will. A mixture of Celtic fiddles, stomping, glammy beats and a chorus that could quite easily have been nicked from a Victorian playground chant, it sounds like nothing else around at the moment, while also sounding like something you've had in your CD collection for decades. Pretty nifty, eh? 4/5 stars.[1]
