Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Pushing the Senses, Feeder’s fifth studio album builds on the introspective maturity that made Comfort in Sound a hit with both critics and record-buyers alike. Far removed from the upbeat power-pop of breakthrough Echo Park, Senses owes a greater debt to the sound of America’s mid-west, jumbled up with some quintessentially British song-writing.

"Tumble and Fall", the first single to be lifted, is an un-ashamed power-ballad. The words may be slightly ham-fisted ("tumble and fall, together we crawl"), but the melody catches so brilliantly that the actual lyrical content doesn’t matter amidst the soulful verse and explosive chorus. This style of downbeat MOR with epic refrains continues throughout most of the album with only "Pilgrim Soul" forcing out any energy, the rest demonstrating the same quiet restraint that Grant has adopted for his vocals. Whilst the noise has been toned down from their days as festival stalwarts, the sound is still grand, almost stadium sized, but in a more considered and less sweaty way. The influences behind many of the songs seem to drift in then disappear again with echoes of REM ("Pushing the Senses"), Mercury Rev ("Frequency") and Belle & Sebastian ("Dove Grey Sands") making an impression without leaving a mark.

From the ten songs here it’s difficult to pick stand outs as the quality is un-wavering and the overall sound is very easy to listen to. If their last album was the sound of a band coming of age, Pushing the Senses is the sound of Feeder in the prime of life. --Georgina Collins

5.0 out of 5 stars an amazing album 25 May 2005
Format:Audio CD
I got into Feeder through an ex boyfriend who was mad about them. At first I didnt see what all the fuss was about but after seeing them live all that changed. They were amazing. At the time, Comfort in Sound had just been released and I loved the album, at the same time liking the older, more rocky stuff. I had been looking forward to Pushing the Senses for ages, and I wasnt disappointed- its a great album full of emotion and thought. However after reading some of the reviews and hearing people moaning I had to write this review, its annoying hearing so called 'old' Feeder fans whinging on about how Feeder have changed and dont do harder stuff anymore. Cant a band take a different musical direction and experiment without being stuck in 1996? I would say look past all that and what you are left with is a beautiful album, with ups and downs, quieter reflective songs but also up tempo rock which retains its intelligence without being no-brainer guitar thrashing idiocy. High points of Pushing the Senses- 'Feeling a moment', 'Pushing the Senses', 'Morning life' and 'Pilgrim Soul', although every track has something to offer. This is one of my favourite albums of the year.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good, solid album 21 Feb 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It was always going to be difficult for Feeder to repeat the brilliance of Comfort In Sound, and while Pushing The Senses doesn't quite match their pevious album, there is plenty here to appeal to music fans.
Feeling A Moment is a fantastic, uplifting opening track, followed by Bitter Glass, which is another good song. Pushing The Senses, quite an unbeat tune, and Morning Life, more considered, are very good too, while Pilgrim Soul hints at Feeder's earlier sound. New and old fans alike will be interested to hear Frequency and Dove Grey Sands, which are a break from the usual Feeder sound, but grow on you.
After the praise heaped upon them after their last album, this new one was always going to receive mixed reviews, we live in Britain after all. Whereas Comfort In Sound was more of a complete package, this album is a bit of a mixed bag of tricks, but is still worth owning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reviewing the Senses 2 Feb 2005
Format:Audio CD
After the commercial and critical success of Comfort in Sound it is great to see Feeder return with an album that builds on the music of CiS and in some ways beats it.
THe album gets off to a great start- Feeling a Moment, a euphoric opener that could be a huge hit for the band. Following is the powerful and Coldplay-like Bitter Glass, and then top 5 single Tumble and Fall. Track 4 Tender is definately a grower and blossoms into a beautiful ballad similar to Echo Park's Turn.
And then comes the superb Pushing the Senses, a classic pulsating Feeder track- combining the pop rock of Echo Park with the more refined production and lyrics of CiS. And then comes another standout track, the beautiful Frequency, with its superb vocals from Grant. Morning Life follows, another grower, with some great technical effects adding to the song.
Following is Pilgrim Soul- the closest track on the album to Polythene, and it is fantastic. Pain on Pain is another piano led beautiful track, and the calm and relaxing Dove Grey Sands is a good closing track.
Overall a fantastic album, possibly Feeder's best. Whether it will replace my favourite, Comfort in Sound, will be seen over time. At fourty minutes it is a short album that leaves you wanting more, although one feels a couple more tracks should be added, maybe rockier tracks akin to Pushing the Senses to keep the older fans happy. It is the variety of musical styles that make this album, shown by the reviews I have seen in magazines each picking different standout tracks. Wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait! 26 Feb 2005
Format:Audio CD
Say what you like about Feeder. I have seen many a journalistic angle criticising the band of recording uninspiring songs, suggesting that "Pushing the Senses" is simply jumping on the Keane, Coldplay, Athlete et al bandwagon. I beg to differ. "Pushing the Senses" is clearly evolved from the magnificent Comfort in Sound, with some tracks very reminiscent of Just the Way I'm Feeling, Love Pollution and the likes.
Whilst "Pushing the Senses" is a far cry from their far rockier/poppier days of Polythene and Echo Park it is superb in its own rights. The opening track "Feeling the Moment" is an uplifting start to the album and an excellent, if slightly surprising choice for next single- I predicted "Pushing the Senses" an equally brilliant track and one of the more rockier on the album (the terrific "Bitter Glass", very possibly inspired by Jon Lee's suicide, being the other), with all the wonderful texture that Feeder fans have come to expect from the band. Songs like these prove that, whilst having toned down their act following Jon Lee's tragic death, they are still perfectly capable of rocking. In fact, it is my opinion that tracks such as these are in fact progress from examples like "Polythene Girl", as the clear improvements in Grant's voice make for admirable soft vocals.
"Pushing the Senses" is a fairly short album in comparison to its predecessors, a decision justified by the band in the accompanying DVD, commenting that 40 minutes is an ideal length for an album. I have to agree. The album opens excellently and the first five tracks are instantly catchy with the contrast of "Bitter Glass" and the single "Tumble and Fall", followed by the highlight of the album, "Tender"- a prime example of the type of multi layered stirring song that has become synonymous with Feeder.
