5.0 out of 5 stars Reviewing the Senses, 2 Feb 2005
This review is from: Pushing The Senses [Limited Edition] [CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
After the commercial and critical success of Comfort in Sound it is great to see Feeder return with an album that builds on the music of CiS and in some ways beats it.
THe album gets off to a great start- Feeling a Moment, a euphoric opener that could be a huge hit for the band. Following is the powerful and Coldplay-like Bitter Glass, and then top 5 single Tumble and Fall. Track 4 Tender is definately a grower and blossoms into a beautiful ballad similar to Echo Park's Turn.
And then comes the superb Pushing the Senses, a classic pulsating Feeder track- combining the pop rock of Echo Park with the more refined production and lyrics of CiS. And then comes another standout track, the beautiful Frequency, with its superb vocals from Grant. Morning Life follows, another grower, with some great technical effects adding to the song.
Following is Pilgrim Soul- the closest track on the album to Polythene, and it is fantastic. Pain on Pain is another piano led beautiful track, and the calm and relaxing Dove Grey Sands is a good closing track.
Overall a fantastic album, possibly Feeder's best. Whether it will replace my favourite, Comfort in Sound, will be seen over time. At fourty minutes it is a short album that leaves you wanting more, although one feels a couple more tracks should be added, maybe rockier tracks akin to Pushing the Senses to keep the older fans happy. It is the variety of musical styles that make this album, shown by the reviews I have seen in magazines each picking different standout tracks. Wonderful.
