FEEDER Pushing The Senses (2005 UK 10-track CD album which encompasses all the elements that make the band one of the UKs premier rock bands - an epic full of stadium filling anthems including the single Tumble And Fall!)
Pushing the Senses, Feeders fifth studio album builds on the introspective maturity that made Comfort in Sound a hit with both critics and record-buyers alike. Far removed from the upbeat power-pop of breakthrough Echo Park, Senses owes a greater debt to the sound of Americas mid-west, jumbled up with some quintessentially British song-writing.
"Tumble and Fall", the first single to be lifted, is an un-ashamed power-ballad. The words may be slightly ham-fisted ("tumble and fall, together we crawl"), but the melody catches so brilliantly that the actual lyrical content doesnt matter amidst the soulful verse and explosive chorus. This style of downbeat MOR with epic refrains continues throughout most of the album with only "Pilgrim Soul" forcing out any energy, the rest demonstrating the same quiet restraint that Grant has adopted for his vocals. Whilst the noise has been toned down from their days as festival stalwarts, the sound is still grand, almost stadium sized, but in a more considered and less sweaty way. The influences behind many of the songs seem to drift in then disappear again with echoes of REM ("Pushing the Senses"), Mercury Rev ("Frequency") and Belle & Sebastian ("Dove Grey Sands") making an impression without leaving a mark.
From the ten songs here its difficult to pick stand outs as the quality is un-wavering and the overall sound is very easy to listen to. If their last album was the sound of a band coming of age, Pushing the Senses is the sound of Feeder in the prime of life. --Georgina CollinsSee all Product Description

Whilst "Pushing the Senses" is a far cry from their far rockier/poppier days of Polythene and Echo Park it is superb in its own rights. The opening track "Feeling the Moment" is an uplifting start to the album and an excellent, if slightly surprising choice for next single- I predicted "Pushing the Senses" an equally brilliant track and one of the more rockier on the album (the terrific "Bitter Glass", very possibly inspired by Jon Lee's suicide, being the other), with all the wonderful texture that Feeder fans have come to expect from the band. Songs like these prove that, whilst having toned down their act following Jon Lee's tragic death, they are still perfectly capable of rocking. In fact, it is my opinion that tracks such as these are in fact progress from examples like "Polythene Girl", as the clear improvements in Grant's voice make for admirable soft vocals.
"Pushing the Senses" is a fairly short album in comparison to its predecessors, a decision justified by the band in the accompanying DVD, commenting that 40 minutes is an ideal length for an album. I have to agree. The album opens excellently and the first five tracks are instantly catchy with the contrast of "Bitter Glass" and the single "Tumble and Fall", followed by the highlight of the album, "Tender"- a prime example of the type of multi layered stirring song that has become synonymous with Feeder.Read more ›
This album is incredibly strong, all the songs are good bar none, it gels very well as a record and is easy to listen to all the way through without skipping any tracks. Sure it's more melancholic than their previous work but it shows that they have more strings to their bow. Im a big fan of Polythene but that doesnt mean I can't appreciate this effort, as different as it is. Theres no need to bash this album as being too mellow for a Feeder record because this is something they obviously felt they had to do and unlike many of their contemporaries they pull it off spectacularly, with all the emotion feeling very, very real.
I wonder, if people had heard this record with no previous knowledge of Feeder's work, would they like it more?
Feeling A Moment is a fantastic, uplifting opening track, followed by Bitter Glass, which is another good song. Pushing The Senses, quite an unbeat tune, and Morning Life, more considered, are very good too, while Pilgrim Soul hints at Feeder's earlier sound. New and old fans alike will be interested to hear Frequency and Dove Grey Sands, which are a break from the usual Feeder sound, but grow on you.
After the praise heaped upon them after their last album, this new one was always going to receive mixed reviews, we live in Britain after all. Whereas Comfort In Sound was more of a complete package, this album is a bit of a mixed bag of tricks, but is still worth owning.
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.
