5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant, 20 Mar 2003
I'm not going to pretend I knew a lot about Feeder before this album came out. Granted, I'd heard Buck Rogers a lot but to be honest I'd thought it was by by Sum 41. (Don't ask me why). But this album... wow it's amazing. I bought it straight away on hearing 'Just the Way I'm Feeling', and I can truly say that this just makes me feel (see what I did there) like I'm let into the artist's head and allowed to roam around a bit to see all his thoughts. Which after all, is what music should about, isn't it? In my opinion the best songs on here are the afore mentioned 'Just the Way I'm Feeling' the emotinally charged 'Comfort in Sound' and the classically rocky 'Helium.' There are moments of… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply... incredible, 23 Sep 2002
I heard about this band from the novelisation of 'Never Been Kissed' (of all things) and decided to give them a go. What I heard blew me away. Finally, I have found an album that is absolutely perfect! It's a complete throwback to the classic era of swing and jazz that existed in the fifties - so much better than most of the music around today (I am seventeen, so I'm not being an old fuddy duddy when I say that) - and it's unbelievably fun! My favourite tracks on here have to be Mr Pinstripe Suit, King of Swing and Minnie the Moocher - complete and utter classics. (Anyone else who's reminded of the beginning part of Some Like it Hot?) Sooo... to sum up.... it's amazing. Didn't think it was… Read more

I am a massive fan of American Rock that no-one has ever heard of in England (Vertical Horizon, Matchbox Twenty, Remy Zero, Lifehouse, Goo Goo Dolls, blah blah...) and so when I heard 'Wherever You Will Go' on mp3 (before it was released over here) I was determined to get Camino Palmero. However, not all of the other songs on the album match up to the rocky-ness of that song. 'Unstoppable' is a classic rock song that is a great start, 'Adrienne' is quite similar to 'Wherever' in it's upbeat tempo and yearning lyrics - and overall it's a really good bunch of songs. This band should be given the proper recognition as a group of incredible musicians - Alex Band's voice is simply beautiful:… Read more
