According to their record company, in 2006, for one in every 5 minutes, a radio station, somewhere, was playing a single by The Feeling from their massive selling "Twelve Stops And Home" album. In 2008, this looks set to be the case once more.
Off the scene since the underperforming final single from their last album, "Rose" from this time last year, the band are back with the first single from second album "Join With Us" that sounds every inch like it's been litmus tested against every radio station going. But in a good way - in fact, make that a very very good way.
Perhaps drawing on inspiration from the band's good friend (and Richard's wife) Sophie Ellis-Bextor, "I Thought It Was Over" is a rollicking discotastic invite to the dancefloor which still carries the band's trademark 70's pop rock sound a la Supertramp. It's their best single since "I Love It When You Call" and certainly deserves a top 3 position at least.
