We disappointed that the tour was cancelled in April, but having heard these songs cannot wait to see the band live at the end of October. Fantastic vocals and musical interludes. Well worth buying and, if you haven't seen them live and can get tickets, it should be a great night out.

That eminent and smug clan, the music critics, are all too ready to rubbish The Feeling. "They used to be a tribute band" they sneer. "Their tunes all sound the same" they cavil. But didn't the Beatles start life as a tinpot foursome, turning out banal covers of old songs like "Ain't She Sweet" while plying their trade in seedy Hamburg nightclubs before achieving world domination?

This is an excellent album. The opening track "Blue Murder", with its intelligent lyrics and intricate harmonies and chord changes, would do credit to other bands the critics love, for example U2, and this high standard is kept up throughout. Dan Gillespie Sills' voice sounds coarser than before and the theme of hopelessness in love continues almost unabated through the album.

Go on you smug critics. Listen again!

There is no doubt that the Feeling produce some rollicking good tunes and from that point of view there isn't really a weak track on this album. In fact unlike some other reviewers, I find most of the tracks instantly memorable. After one listen I was singing along. There are some golden moments vocally as well. The rather controlled textureless vocals to which they are prone, give way to less controlled rock like gravel on some of the more soaring choruses. On other occasions they become quite intimate and fragile.

So why only 3 stars? Well, the lyrics are pretty mature and quite clever but they all seem to be of one theme - self pity after a relationship break up. After a while this starts to grate a bit and becomes quite annoying. So all in all, a pretty good effort but can be a bit too much to swallow lyrically.

A good 4th album from the boys. A little raw in places, which means it comes over as more honest and natural.

12 stops was a 5 star for me, followed by their other albums which were pretty average by comparison,to me, but still had some good pop songs on. I've continued to buy their music hoping that they can somehow come up with something as good as their debut. Unfortunately this album is not the one and I can't find anything on here that I like.

Heart-felt songs with big hooks. Some nice production. Not as strong as their previous Twelve Stops (which I think is a minor classic) - less stylistic range - here it's plaintive piano-based slightly alt-pop/rock. But definitely worth a listen if you want a little more soul and emotion than the typical top 40 fare.

I agree this is certainly different, nothing like the early stuff but still so classy.

Saw them live yet again on their recent tour and it was obvious right from the start that this album means such a lot to them.

A highly under-rated band who should be gracing a far bigger stage than they are.
