OK - long term fan of early, middle and late BM music, as well as Robert's solo work. Along with the fans and the press, we all agree this is an absolutely outstanding release. Recorded in record time, keeping the sound fresh, but with years of musicality and influence shining through in the writing, this is not a band from the Here and Now 80s revival. This is a band continuing to be creative and exciting and you will keep this album on your playlist for a very long time.
Do yourself a favour. Buy this album!

Having been a small BM fan then a massive Dr Robert fan, I enjoyed Devils Tavern, disappointed by the sound mix on Staring At The Sea, but Feels like a New Morning is amazing. Uplifting, well constructed, melodic beauty of an album. This, for those with taste, is the sound of the summer for 2013. I'm salivating at what may come next in a band that is now clearly back in its best groove, ever. Awesome.

This is by far and away the finest collection of songs produced by the band since their reunion. Listened to over the hot bank holiday weekend, this was the perfect accompaniment to the sunshine! Dr Robert is in fine voice and the band are tight. I cannot find any fault with this album and thoroughly recommend it.

Since 1984, I've been a big fan of The Blow Monkeys. A week hasn't gone by that I haven't listened to a Blow Monkey's song. I have many memories of my life with The Blow Monkeys playing in the background. I'm a amazed sometime I'm still here and also many of the bands I love are still making music. The world keeps changing and not always for the better and it's always nice to continue making new memories and the music I love still continues to be the soundtrack of my life.

As a longtime fan, I just want to chime in that as enjoyable as this record is, from a vibrant, continuously creative mind/band... you prolly won't be filing this amongst your fave BM records ever.
