Well welcome to The Feeling's latest offering of 70's soft Rock "research" ;-) If you enjoyed 12 Stops From Home, I fail to see how you couldn't enjoy the follow up offering from one of the finest bands around.
As a 40 year old, I am hearing so many influences from the 70's here, the title track "Join With Us" stands shoulder to shoulder with Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel's "Mr. Soft" While "Don't Make Me Sad" is straight from Martin and Coulter's Bay City Roller's songbook.
So why is this a very worthy modern album, rather than just a 70's pastiche? Well the band's Ivan Novello Award is richly deserved, and their bar has not lowered with this body of work. Each tune is a melodic marvel while their lyric work is relevant and evocative, none more so than the second single to be taken from the album "Without You" which is polar opposite to the first single "I thought It Was Over", no overblown musicality here, just a lovely melody and poignant lyrics.
Each track is markedly different from the last, but it is a fantastical journey to undertake, and I can see why some people may be disappointed that the album is not 13 different versions of "I thought It Was Over", but this is a more mature work from The Feeling and if you accept that growth, you are to be rewarded with a remarkable experience.
Still OK but no longer on my regular listening list.
If they set out to beat Twelve Stops and Home then I believe they failed, if they just set out to release another fantastic album you can listen to over and over again however, they couldn't have succeeded any better. It's also a plus that they can actually sing all the songs live. Just make sure you get the special 2 disc edition if only to get Video Killed the Radio Star.
There are several standout tracks, the very mainstream and bouncy opening 'I Thought It Was Over', the mellow 'Without You', the infectious grower 'Turn It Up', and the excellent 'The Greatest Show on Earth', which is virtually two songs mixed into one (the other is a hidden track), and ends the album out on a ridiculously catchy high. The rest of the material is either to easy to skip past, overly cheesy (the debut album had plentiful cheesy lyrics, but at least those words were good), or very repetitive.
I'd recommend that you purchase The Feeling's 2006 debut album first, and you'll probably love it. 'Join With Us' spawned just one big hit ('I Thought It Was Over'), but is worth having for the good stuff, but just don't expect another 'Twelve Stops and Home'.
