5.0 out of 5 stars Great record!,
This review is from: Comfort in Sound [Special Edition CD + DVD] (Audio CD)This is simply a superd album, and is now my favourite Feeder album. I agree with everything bing_is_back says, especially when mentioning the track Moonshine. As good as JTWIF, Come Back Around, etc are this is my favourite track. It's got so much feeling about it and it's nice to see someone else has given it a mention.
I've liked Feeder from Swim to Echo Park, and although 'Comfort In Sound' is in a completely different style, in my opinion it's even better.
There isn't a bad track on this album (Godzilla may not fit in with the rest of the album particularly well, but it's still a good song and offers a bit of variety.) BUY IT!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best yet,
This review is from: Comfort in Sound [Special Edition CD + DVD] (Audio CD)Having been a fan of feeder since hearing High many years ago, I was slightly disappointed with Echo Park. Where was the standout track of previous albums (High, Yesterday went too soon), that no other British Indie band could come close to writing. It was a good album without doubt, but compared to their latest, it doesn't hold a match to it, let alone a tourch. This album hasn't got anything quite like Insomnia or Buck Rogers, but that's not what this record about (well apart from the dreadful godzilla). There are some very good tracks, such as the first single 'come back around', 'comfort in sound', 'find the colour' and the wonderful closing track 'moonshine', and these songs alone filled with previous feeder fare would still probably merit 3-4 stars.
However, there are three tracks on this album which in my humble opinion make this the stand out album of 2003. Firstly, Love Pollution, which seems like the perfect end to this album (until Moonshine comes alone) is a melodic song which would be perfect to listen to whilst staring out the window at another miserable day and trying to convince yourself that things aren't really that bad after all. If that track doesn't cheer you up, try Just the way I'm feeling, which was probably Feeder's big breakthrough into mainstream radio (and the perfect song to do so). It's catchy, beautifully written, a builds beautifully to a big chorus. But then there is probably one of the ultimate feel good songs of last year, Forget About Tomorrow. Heard it live on Radio 1 before this album was released and immediately fell in love with it. Listen to the words, listen to the strings, and I defy anyone with a passion for good guitar music not to feel the hairs stand up on the back of their neck. Its a song that is just so perfectly feeder that no band would come close to creating anything like it. As good as Yesterday went to soon? I'd even say yes. My favourite single by any band of 2003 by a distance, and without a doubt, and outstanding album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just superb,
This review is from: Comfort in Sound [Special Edition CD + DVD] (Audio CD)Quite simply this album is fantastic. If you are a die-hard Feeder fan you may have been a little dissapointed on a first listen, but stay with it because once you have listened to Comfort in Sound a few times it will become a firm favourite.
What to me sets it apart from Feeders previous offerings is the emotion involved. Like Stereophonic's Word Gets Around, alot of the songs are based on unfortunate events and feelings. The result of this is a very mature and very polished album - you just have to listen to the lyrics to understand what the band were going through at the time.
The worst track 'Godzilla' is an attempt to put in a up-tempo fast guitar track to apease the rock fans, but this album really doesn't need it.
'Moonshine' is a superb track to end the album on and really expresses how personal this album is.
Im not a big fan of artists taking a change of direction, (in my opinion both the Stereophonics and Blur are making much worse albums now than in their earlier years), but this album truly is brilliant, and a must for anyone who likes music that is made for the right reasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars moving stuff,
By A Customer
This review is from: Comfort in Sound [Special Edition CD + DVD] (Audio CD)this album is amazing. the best yet from feeder. really deep stuff this time, more melodic than previous stuff, which is better in my opinion. really moving some of it. the final 3 tracks sum up the feelings of the album, and the last track moonshine is an amazing ender. every track except for godzilla is great, highlights being just the way im feeling, comfort in sound, summers gone, and the last 4. in fact all are great, but those come to mind. this album really is moving. i just hope the new album can live uo the high standards feeder have set with this. a brillaint english rock band, i hope they go a long way. i've seen them live, mainly promoting this album, and they are great. energetic varied and exciting

5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the Year....,
This review is from: Comfort in Sound [Special Edition CD + DVD] (Audio CD)I bought the original album in Jan 2003, and the fact that I have bought around 20 Feeder records since then proves how good this album is. First off, the album. It is my favourite album of all time, there is not a bad song on the album, and any bad songs will grow on you. The singles Just the Way I'm Feeling, Come Back Around, Forget about Tomorrow and Find the COulour are all excellent tracks, but there are plenty more great songs on the album. The Muse-like Summer's Gone is superb, as is the beautiful Love Pollution, Comfort in sound and Child in You (Reminscient of Piece by Piece). The best album of the last year by far in my opinion.
The re-release contains an 8 video bonus DVD, making it an essential purchase for any music fan. Should you buy the re-release if you own the original version? Yes, the DVD is worth the price alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Controversy over 'Godzilla',
This review is from: Comfort in Sound [Special Edition CD + DVD] (Audio CD)The track 'Godzilla' actually has some 'special' meaning to Grant Nicholas and Taka Hirose, with the inclusion of words such as "lost love in suicide". This is, of course, a reference to the death of founding member Jon Lee, who died two years ago. That's probably why is sounds so different to any of the other songs on the album, and why it needed to be included.
However, I can also say that this album is one of the greatest albums that I have ever bought and it deserves all the praise it has got in the last year-and-a-half or so it has been out. Excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars FEEDER - Comfort in Sound (the re-release,
By A Customer
This review is from: Comfort in Sound [Special Edition CD + DVD] (Audio CD)This has to be one of Feeders best albums. The re-release of Comfort In Sound is due to the the bands most successful year ever. It has been repackaged in a 2 Disc Set and contains 8 bounus DVD tracks. One of the extra tracks is the excellent "JUST A DAY" that has a real cool video that is on the DVD. Also on the DVD is some videos of them Live at Reading and Brixton.
This is a must have if you dont have the original Comfort in Sound album already. But if you are like me and already have it then it is still worth getting as the exrtra DVD that comes with it is excellent with videos like Just a Day and Live performances from Reading and Brixton.

5.0 out of 5 stars Faultless,
This review is from: Comfort in Sound [Special Edition CD + DVD] (Audio CD)Pretty new to Feeder although I did see them support the Stereophonics a couple of years ago. Loved the last couple of singles so plumped for the album and have not been disappointed. I'm one of those listeners that always skips to his favourite tracks (drives my wife mad) but this album I listen to from start to finish.
I'd recommend this totally.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfort and more!,
This review is from: Comfort in Sound [Special Edition CD + DVD] (Audio CD)WOW! I bought CiS and, I won't go into details, but it helped me a lot, CiS is my comfort in life. I didn't think it could get any better they bring out the incredible DVD format!
The girls will love this as they can pause all the lovely shots of Grantley and stare (hehe, not that I'd do that!). The videos are incredible and mix new Feeder stuff with the classics such as JAD!
You'd be very silly to miss out on this!
Rock on people! \m/

5.0 out of 5 stars A Band with something to sing about,
This review is from: Comfort in Sound [Special Edition CD + DVD] (Audio CD)I got into Feeder with the Buck Rogers & Seven Days singles but didn't buy the album Echo Park. When Come Back Around came out I knew this was a band with pedigree so bought Comfort in Sound and Echo Park. Boy did I enjoy those couple of days discovering gem after gem. I love Comfort in Sound because Feeder get it right. Some hard rocking songs like Come Back Around and Godzilla then some thoughful modern classic's like Just The Way I'm Feeling and Quick Fade. I think Feeder sound so good because they have something to sing about after Jon Lee's death but they don't get too sad or pitiful. When you look at the success of bands like Coldplay and Keane and listen to this album you can't help feel Feeder have been hard done by in the success stakes. The DVD extras are cool with video's including a cover of Can't Stand Loosing You and Just A Day which never appeared on an album. This album will improve your life. Buy it.
