Whilst I have enjoyed all of Feeder's albums, I have always thought that 'Comfort in Sound' and 'Echo Park' stood out as their best. Well you can add 'Generation Freakshow' to that list. It has the mix of tunes from the tuneful 'Borders' and 'Children of the Sun' to the more fast paced rocky 'Headstrong'. It is a great album and in my eyes they are definitely back to their best! Go and buy it now!!!

If the albums "Silent Cry" and "Renegades" got together and had a baby then this is how it would sound but even though you can hear its ancestry there are songs on Generation Freakshow that don't belong anywhere else, this album is a separate animal in it's own right. It's more compact and has a better sense of direction than Silent Cry while being far more balanced and complete than Renegades. Feeder never stay in one place too long, they give us something new with each album/EP while staying true to who they are and this album is no exception. Comfort In Sound or Pushing The Senses it isn't, so if you want that then you're going to be disappointed. The lyrics are not so deep or moving as they were back then but Feeder has moved on just as each one of their albums moves on from the last but what this album lacks in depth it makes up for in power and movement. You will find yourself tapping your foot, nodding your head or swaying from side to side to each track.

There are little hints and nods to old Feeder here too. The intro to the opening track reminds me of "Crash", "Borders" has that little bit in the middle that reminds me of when Feeder would occasionally sound like The Police and the intro "Generation Freakshow" reminds me of the B-side "Come Back Around" (found on Picture of Perfect Youth). "In All Honesty" is similar to "Hole In My Head" but it's "DoDo, DoDooo" brakes up its momentum while at the same time making it pretty unique to Feeder and not to mention very catchy.

If you have heard the single "Borders" then the rest of the album is in that same vein. Most of the tracks are around the 3 minute mark (with the exception of Quiet, Sunrise and Children of the Sun) so that they have punch and don't out stay their welcome.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Feeder Album is like Ronseal! 14 Dec 2012
By Savo
Format:Audio CD
My title is not meant to deman Feeder I am a huge fan and have seent them live maybe 10 times now. If you know Feeder you know what you are getting to a certain extent and there's nothing wrong with that. As has been said Renegades was so so as an album but this for me is a solid Feeder album which has all you want from the band. A friend who writes and plays music has listened to it and came to the recent concert and really enjoyed it and was very complementry about the lyrics and music. So many bands want to change or heal the world or reinvent themselves everytime they come back from the shop with a loaf of bread. Feeder for me want to make good music and get it out there. They've done so here yet again and that'll do for me and hopefully for you also.

This album is fantastic! It is definitely a return to form for Feeder! The songs really grow on you until you're singing them in your head all day long! In particular Borders, Oh My and Hey Johnny. Just wow!

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant suprise 29 May 2012
Format:Audio CD
Having been a huge Feeder fan since the late 1990's I was looking forward to this album - although I enjoyed the 'Renegades' album there was some filler and for me it sounded better live than on CD.
'Generation Freakshow' has restored my faith in Feeder, creating a pretty much flawless album full of amazing songs.
My personal favourites are 'Hey Johnny' (a fitting tribute to Jon Lee), 'Sunrise' (epic chorus), 'Headstrong' and 'Fools Can't Sleep'.
A really good, well rounded album that can be listened to over and over again, with pretty much every song sticking in your head.
Great stuff. Thank you Feeder!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 21 May 2012
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I love Feeder, but wasn't a huge fan of their last two albums, although 'Renegades' grew on me! But this album is great :) A return to stuff similar to Comfort In Sound and Echo Park. Some great 'anthem' tracks, and definitely an album that I'll have on for a long time. I can listen to it again and again, and 'Borders' is a brilliant driving song! Cannot recommend it enough :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad... not bad at all. 11 May 2012
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Feeder fans (myself included) have been on a roller coaster over the years as Feeder has evolved / diversified / branched out / changed direction. The differences between their albums tends to be huge.

Some things that stand out to me are influences from their previous albums, I especially get hints of swim/polythene in this (the track sunrise is probably the clearest cut example). It's not like they've made tracks that would fit onto those albums, but some of the vocals are similar (not the lyrics, but the way in which Grant uses his voice). It certainly put a smile on my face and brought back some memories of the albums of the early years of Feeder.

Generation Freakshow is a pretty good album and I've rated it as such. It's probably more in the pop-rock type of genre than classic alternate-rock Feeder; it has some catchy tunes and decent vocals as you expect. The album, like many of their others reflects the current state the band are in; they're maturing/matured and there isn't that youthful/punk kind of energy they used to have, or it doesn't seem as emotionally driven as the likes of Comfort in Sound, it seems to be more 'uplifting' and easier listening.

Overall, it's a good album... if I was to rate it against other Feeder albums it might not score so well against the likes of the Swim-Comfort in Sound era, but for the modern stuff I think it's certainly up there.
