YESTERDAY WENT TOO SOON The first track (also the title track from the second album) is a beautifully crafted piece of art. Mellow strumming mingles with string arrangements, chilled bass rhythms and a non-intrusive drum beat. Along with Grant Nicholas's stunning vocals, this song would feel at home on any movie soundtrack. The lyrics fit frighteningly well to the melody, and emotion-laden strings feature heavily in the middle 8. This is a perfect example of one of Feeder's honey-sweet classics. If you like this, also try Tinseltown and Paperfaces on the album Yesterday Went Too Soon.
B-SIDES Getting To Know You Well Fly
Feeder b-sides never fail to please, and these are no exception. Getting To Know You Well is the quirkier side of Feeder, with harmonic verses and a bongo drum beat. Fly is from the same (although not as powerful) strain as Yesterday Went Too Soon, with an acoustic lead guitar and ambient background melody.
CONCLUSION Yesterday Went Too Soon gives a taste of Feeder's ballad style tracks, and with this CD being an import, would make a valuble contribution to any indie fan's collection.
