Product Description


Feeder have long been the supply teacher of Brit-rock, the Scott Mills of pop-punk if you like--unremarkable yet undeniably able, and somehow proficient or lucky enough to exist beneath the radar, shrewdly outlasting most of their contemporaries. The single most memorable thing about their career is that they once rhymed "Devon" with "Lemon" in nonsensical disregard for lyrical cogency, but their 2006 singles collection contained 20 tracks (yes, TWENTY!), most of them instantly recognisable and entirely affable. None of us will live long enough to find out, but Feeder may well end up rivalling the cockroach in terms of covert resilience. And, as album number 6, Silent Cry, true to form, neither furthers nor hampers their progress. That is to say, it's exactly as good as they’ve always been--whatever you consider that to be. You know the drill by now--comfortable runs of clean guitar, Grant Nicholas’ earnest blue-eyed vocals, add distortion, rinse, repeat, fade. That they manage to squeeze fresh juice from such a well-wrung fruit is credit to a genuine songwriting flair. And though there are equally no real surprises, there are standouts that nudge their alignment just off-centre. Take "Tracing Lines" with its tight beats and itchy minimalism reminding of The Strokes (though also highlighting Nicholas’ comparative lack of charisma), "Miss You" which thunders along burning adrenaline like Foo Fighters at their most agile and closing track "Sonorous" with hurtling crescendos a la Muse. --James Berry

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Underrated Album from Most Underrated Band 10 April 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I cannot believe the sheer arrogance of the music press when it comes to Feeder and their work. Only the likes of NME gave the album 7/10 and that's because they were too busy going after Morrissey's scalp to bother. The press think they are 'too good' for this band, and it's only cool to like a band that no-one's heard of. Objectivity I can appreciate, but down right prejudice is intolerable and the press have been hammering Feeder since they day they were born and most of it is unjustified.
Back to the album - with a little patience this album reveals itself to you bit by bit. Your favourite track will change week by week until it will finally settle on one. Mine settled on Guided by a Voice which is absolutely seminal in the wavering delight of its melody. Every track is a gem and you will realise that this album is going to be one of those classics you will always remember. It is self produced and all the better for it. Feeder simply do not get the credit they deserve. Admittedly this album's release was cocked up by the new owners of the record company and so its publicity was woefully inadequate. In summary, if you've ever liked even one Feeder song then go ahead and buy with confidence.

5.0 out of 5 stars A grower! 28 Aug 2008
By Nat
Format:Audio CD
Initially, I found this album to be disappointingly bland. Each song seemed to sound alike, with no stand-out tracks. This turned out to be a good omen; all my favourite albums are not immediately likeable. I could really appreciate the quality of 'Silent Cry' after four listens. It is quite an epic sound, with universal lyrics. 'Sonorous' gives a nod to the old grunge days; 'Into The Blue' has an indie disco influence; 'Tracing Lines' is upbeat pop. The guitars and rhythms are heavy, which signals a new burst of confidence, if not a return to the pre-CIS sound. However, a bit of piano or keyboard would have been welcome at points! The two extra tracks on the deluxe edition are probably not worth it, though, unless you are a completist.

5.0 out of 5 stars SLAP IT ON !! 21 Feb 2011
Format:Audio CD
Had this on loop while decorating the lounge last week. Took 4 days and 4 coats so had plenty of listens. Whole album made it onto my classic and that's as rare as a straight politician. Favourite tracks keep changing which is always a good sign (no filler here folks, unlike my walls). So in summary "FEEDER ROCK" and my lounge looks quite nice too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Silent Cry 8 July 2008
Format:Audio CD
Any album that is next in line for release after a "Greatest Hits" style CD is going to be a tough one to fathom; both for the band, and the fans. It can often put the band under a lot of pressure and strain to deliver, especially when you have a record as clean and exceptionally impressive as that of Grant Nicholas' Feeder. Many people thought 'The Singles' was the band's way of telling everyone that they were finally calling it a day, and yet 2 years on, here we are with Feeder's new album Silent Cry; and what an album it is.

Straight from the opening chord of first single 'We Are the People', it would seem that Feeder have come out with a real purpose. No longer do they seem to be reluctant to plug in their guitars and return to their roots with crunching power chords and cleverly modified melodious vocals so precise for the sound that it's almost jaw-droppingly good. "What do you say, what do you think about miracles?" rages Grant Nicholas through chord number four, powerfully delivered, opening the album in an outrageously good way, and three and a half minutes later delving into the tinkling, guitar picking opening notes of Itsumo. Bass lines build, harmonising with the vocals and rapidly jumping from note to note creating an atmospheric pop rock masterpiece until it finally swoops into the unmistakeably Feeder-esque chorus. Catchy chord changes, and hooky lyrics coupled with strong power chords, epitimising the bands coupled old and new sound creating their most complete sound yet; and one that works so beautifully that it shines through pretty much all of Feeder's previous releases without a problem.

Single number two 'Miss You' follows the trend with more steady, fast-paced power chords, yet channelled with melody and clever lyrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of their best? 9 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD
After the disappointment last 'proper' album Pushing the senses this is a big relief, not a single album filler in site!

This album really shows there talent, a lot of the songs can be related to their previous albums - but it obviously isn't an attempt to cling to what they used to be good at... they're equally as good as they used to be, but now with the benefit of a range of styles to play.

I don't really consider any of the songs to be album fillers, they're all different and energetic whereas pushing the senses had some powerful, quick songs and then a load of slow paced uninspiring songs from the 2nd half onwards.

I really like this album, it has everything I need, fast paced up beat songs, moving and powerful songs like we are the people (it takes a while to fully appreciate it - and a good set of headphones), and a decent acoustic-ish song (Heads held high) that reminded me of Swim which, despite not being much of an acoustic fan, commands a lot of my attention if it comes on. Also got to mention Who's the enemy - it would be well suited for for a James Bond theme tune - but not the most recent as it needed something pretty loud, fast and heavy to match the film
