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.
