"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 doesnt 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 its 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

Although not the classic hardcore feeder albums of old like echo park and swim, this album is a good example of feeder's progression from a rock group to an indie group. Read morePublished on 17 April 2006 by M. Bignell
I suppose that's very nice album. Though I knew about the existance of Feeder a week ago, I liked their music very much. And video Shatter is amazing.Published on 25 Feb. 2006 by Kseniya
