Product Description

BBC Review

One of The Feeling’s many admirable qualities has been their refusal to chase credibility or the approval of pop critics. From the moment they launched their surprise takeover of 2006’s radio stations, they have been shameless – in the best possible sense – in their desire to reach as many people as possible with their glossy, ebullient pop songs. Unfortunately, that same shamelessness has led to many dismissing them as irony merchants or chart chancers.

What makes this irritating is that it does The Feeling such a disservice, given how tender-hearted and utterly uncynical the band truly are, as revealed on this singles collection. From the lilting, lovelorn Sewn onwards, main-man Dan Gillespie Sells has been a songwriter of rare warmth and heart, whether crafting a tender anthem for the bullied and marginalised on Strange or exposing his own vulnerabilities on the breezy yet broken-hearted Never Be Lonely. No other pop singer has been as preoccupied with 21st century loneliness, returning to the theme in spangly glam-pop like Love It When You Call or elegiac, string-soaked ballads like Without You.

Of course, what ultimately made The Feeling connect with a vast and varied audience was their seemingly effortless knack for a pop hook. The run of singles captured on this collection’s first eight songs is thrilling in its sing-along jubilance. Fill My Little World remains one of the last decade’s most perfect pop singles, shifting brilliantly from minor key heartbreak to air-punching defiance, though it’s nearly matched by the buzzing, dizzying I Thought It Was Over, which captures the deliriums of love and lust as well as anything by Kylie Minogue.

Unfortunately, the collection’s latter tracks show undeniable evidence of the quality control stuttering in later years. Turn It Up, in particular, is as kitschy and irksomely upbeat as the band’s detractors always said the band were, although Set My World on Fire is winningly heartfelt, and a new, more understated version of Rosé makes the original’s melody even more silky and seductive.

Perhaps this collection will prove more successful than recent chart positions would suggest, giving The Feeling the confidence to launch a fresh assault on the nation’s airwaves. God knows our charts could do with an injection of luscious, sincere and perfectly crafted pop songs. If not, it’s a flawed but often gorgeous testament to a band who - for a while - made mainstream pop a much better and more joyous place.

The Feeling are masters at writing and performing songs that are instantly memorable and distinctly them, and leave you feeling good. I like all the tracks on this hits album, you won't be disappointed. They deserve to be an even bigger force than they currently are, they're probably too good to be in the current charts where image is more important than content, their day will come again once the kids have grown up. Consistent and talented, long may they continue.

It probably says much about the state of the UK charts that even 3 years ago, The Feeling were considered one of the best new bands around, yet their 2011 album peaked at 20, and the 3 singles didn't trouble the Top 40 at all - and despite the comment that the 2011 singles were not as good af the earlier ones, Dance For The Lights is actually one of their very best. So there is no excuse for their lack of chart success this year except to say that unless your name is Rhianna, Beyonce or Gaga...or you are a black rapper....then you can foget about any airplay outside of Radio 2 and any hope of featuring on the music channels - which are little more than promotional channels for the aforementioned. When a talented band like the Feeling can't get airplay - we may as well all go home. This album PROVES that no-one has produced as much brilliant POP music in the past 6 years than The Feeling....yet this album will no doubt sell just a few thousand copies - afterall, HMV etc have got to make room on their shelves for the latest Gaga album haven't they. In summary - if you like music that you can actually sing-a-long to....then buy it.

Pop music is the art of casual fling.
No one writes great songs about being married for 25 years, of a companionable silence over-looking the Rialto, of squidging your lover's squidgy bits.
So it is appropriate that my relationship with The Feeling was enjoyable, invigorating and time-limited.
They had somehow passed me by, like garden centres and car boot sales.
So when I heard "A Hundred Sinners" I was pleasantly surprised & over-joyed to find a like-minded soul.
As I pulled out my guitar, we came to know each other well. I hacked around, and decided that Hundred Sinners is in D but immediately goes up to some sort of E. E7? E4? Good move.
It then moves to G and D, but you can stick some sort of other E in there (perhaps E4) and a Daug to liven things up a bit.
And is that a Gm in the middle-8 breakdown? I can see Mr MaCartney nodding his head approvingly there.
Refreshed by our new intimacy, I got this album to learn more.
And somehow, I found my new lover slightly lacking.
Oh yes, technically brilliant. Knows all the tricks. Little bit of Beatles harmony, little bit of exposed emotion but somehow lacking in character.
Something to make The Feeling stand out from the crowd, something original, something to make them my favourite.
But it never quite appeared.
And so the memory remains, but I've moved on. I've returned to my old loves, and a few new flings too.
I've got an ear for a catchy tune myself, you know. I have, I have, even if I say so myself.
But it's never quite been enough.
And I feel that I now understand slightly better why that is.
So my relationship has distracted me, entertained me, and taught me something about myself. And you can't ask for much more than that.
