Product Description

Feeder Echo Park

Amazon.co.uk

Prior to Echo Park, the problem with Feeder was that they always suffered from a lack of rock-star aura. They never said anything controversial. They looked ordinary. They produced straight-ahead rock that didn't rock any boats. They had the problem, a harsh critic might say, of being a bit dull. But then "Buck Rogers" came along and suddenly they were proper chart-shagging pop stars. Okay, so that song has lyrics that lead one to believe they relied on a rhyming dictionary, but Echo Park does have quite a bit going for it. For this outing, Feeder have discovered the joys of knob-twiddling. On the surface, it's more of the third-on-the-bill-at-Reading rock we're used to--big, sing-along choruses made for jumping up and down to. But there's much more going on here. A new embracing of technology has allowed them to fragment their sound, with strange noises bouncing off the deceptively simple tunes. It's not always perfect: "Seven Days in the Sun" sounds like a bit too much like "Closing Time" by Semisonic. But it's preceded by "Piece by Piece", a wavering, claustrophobic ballad which shows that Feeder have apparently grown up. --Emma Johnston

I've been a fan of Feeder for ages. Before 'Swim'{Blue} and I may be sticking my neck out when I say this is my least favourite album from my favourite band. But why 5 stars then? Because Feeder are/ were (present tragedies and situation addressed R.I.P sticks-man and legend Jon Lee) still one of Britains most under-rated and hard working bands and it is still a great album. Just not the best.
'Echo Park' kicks off with a quirky intro 'Standing..' and lulls the casual listener into a false sense of security in a tune reminiscent of the 'Eels' before a snarling sample heavy non-chorus blasts out your equilibrium.
'Buck Rogers' possibly the most immediate and infamous Feeder track is still misunderstood and is a terrific power pop anthem. For the last time it is not about cars, lemons or c'd bloomin' players. It's about jealousy and triumph over adversity.
'Piece by Piece', breathtaking no more no less.
'Seven days in the Sun' good time Feeder and chart friendly. Only on 'Choke' and 'Bug' do we get to the dirty Feeder so promised by 'Bubblehead' (Yesterday secret track).
The problem isn't with the songs as such, or even the band, it's that this album is almost too over produced. Grant is a phenomenal producer (most singles, most albums) in his own right and the conflict I expect he encountered with both Gil Norton and the label is evident. At times the album sounds like vintage Feeder at others it's almost as if they've been forced to deliver some filler tracks to appease the middle ground.
Feeder influences have never been private, such as the police, the smashing pumpkins, husker-du and of course Grant's love of hip-hop, and all are present and correct.

...And it always will be...unless Feeder decides to release something better.
This is a rare thing indeed. Mainly because I like all the tracks on it. Other CDs I own I always have some sort of issue with the "filler" tracks on it. This one I like every last one.
Standing on the Edge, Buck Rodgers, Seven Days in the Sun, Choke, Tell all Your Friends, Under the Weather and Bug are good songs to jump and thrash your head about to.
Piece by Piece, We Can't Rewind, Turn, Oxygen and Satellite News are equally good as slower, mellower sounds.
I always loved this album for the good mix it provides. Some songs will make you feel good; others on it will make you feel slightly sad. Some will make you dance about like a madman, others are calm and contemplative. Feeder was pigeon holed (In Grant Nicholas' own word) as a "Comedy Rock Band" category. Don't make that same mistake. They are capable of far more than "Relying on a rhyming dictionary"!

Just how great is this album, I am now an official Feeder fan! I started liking them after after I bought their song 'Feeling a moment'. But I also loved some of their older songs which I had heard which were 'Buck Rogers' and 'Seven days in the sun'.
So I went out and bought Echo Park and I am totally HOOKED! I love it and it is the only album out of my huge collection of CD's which I actually listen to all the songs on. It has a mixture of loud songs i.e. Buck Rogers, Seven days in the sun, standing on the edge, choke, tell all your friends and bug and the slower ballad type songs i.e. Piece by piece, oxygen, satellite news, we can't rewind etc. I always listen to it in the car, in my room when i'm chillin out and I always have the songs in my head!! Jon Lee will never be forgotten as his brilliant drum playing lives on this album along with Grant's fantastic voice, which sounds great in whatever songs he sings.
I have now bought their other albums and they are now one of my favourite bands. I would recommend Echo Park to everyone so GO OUT AND BUY IT NOW!! It now lives in my CD player, I would give it 1 million stars if I could! So go out and treat yourself.

Yet another fine effort from Feeder. The album brings Feeder into the mainstream spotlight, which some Feeder fans critisise. However, this is not nescessarily a bad thing. Feeder have developed and grown as a band since their debut album "Swim". This is reflected in Echo Park. The album contains many high quality songs such as the chill-out and meloncholic ballad Piece By Piece, the jump up and down Seven Days In The Sun and Buck Rogers and other catchy tunes such as Satellite News, Turn and my personal favourite Tell All Your Friends. I thoroughly enjoyed the album apart for the opening track Standing On The Edge. Musically brilliant but lyrically the album is restricted but one thing that can be said about this album is that its not one-dimensional. Every track differs and stands out in its own right. This in my opinion is probably Feeders best album to date. This album caterpults Feeder amongst the greatest bands in Britain after a long time waiting in the shadows(and deservedly so). R.I.P. Jon Lee

This is the album that really brought me and many others to the wonderful band that is Feeder. Despite being around for some time now 'Echo Park' is the one that has got them most recognition for their efforts. All I can say is it is a great album
Echo Park contains the two singles 'Buck Rogers' and 'Seven Days in the Sun', which will be the most recognisable for fans and non-fans alike . The album contains a good variety of softer songs, like 'Tell all your Friends' and 'We can't Rewind'.but some of the other songs like 'Bug' 'Under the Weather' and 'Choke'are much heavier, but just as good. I can honestly say that there was not one song that I really did not like. There will also be something here for anyone, another good point that it is not all hard rock, and all sorts of people can listen in and enjoy it. A truely great selection of songs!
All in all it ammounts to 12 songs, each around 3-4 mins, so lasting a total of three quarters of an hour. All are really good songs, and I can say for me there was not a single song that I did not enjoy. My personal favourites were the first single Buck Rogers, also We Can't Rewind and Choke. All were good quality songs with meaningful words, well sung by lead singer Grant Nicholas who also plays lead guitar and songwriter. For me Echo Park shows Feeders musical quality. Nice one.
