Product Description

ENHANCED 13 TRACK CD

Amazon.co.uk

With its blend of buzz-saw guitars, pounding drums and catchy lyrics, it would be easy to mistake Feeder's debut mini-album Swim for a bunch of cast-offs from Smashing Pumpkins' opus Siamese Dream, especially on "Stereo World", "W.I.T." and "Shade". But Feeder aren't the first up-and-coming band to wear their influences on their sleeves, and besides, by the end of their run, the Smashing Pumpkins didn't have half of the energy or exuberance exhibited on Swim. Granted, "Sweet 16" lyrically comes across as the indie-rock version of Aerosmith's "Janie's Got a Gun", but its riff is undeniably catchy, which could be said of most of the songs here. Sure, Swim sounds derivative, but when they first released this mini-album, back in 1996, Feeder were still a young band trying to develop their own sound. Try not to hold their lack of originality against them.

This rereleased version of Swim features five extra tracks that were recorded around the same period, plus two enhanced videos ("Crash" and "Cement"). --Robert Burrow

A fantastic debut mini album from one of the greatest bands around. Every track hits you from six. Shade kicks ass, and was featured on the Sony Playstation game 'Gran Turismo'.
If you want a 22 minute blast of quality rock with infectious choruses and mighty riffs this is the CD of choice.

With just 6 tracks you'd think that it's too short to bother with and spend money on, but it's just the opposite. Feeders' first commercially available CD is short but sweet. Two of the tracks ('Sweet 16' and 'Shade') also appeared on the Gran Turismo game for the PlayStation.
1: 'Sweet 16' - Great tune and the story to it is well thought out.
2: 'Stereo World' - Pure rock noise. Class. Personally my least favourite "Swim" track.
3: 'W.I.T.' ('Women In Towels') - Quite amusing lyrics and very catchy.
4: 'Descend' - Excellent slower track that bursts in and out of the chorus. Possibly the best track on "Swim", matched only by
5: 'Shade' - Excellent rock type indie song. Cool lyrics, cool tune, great ending.
6: 'Swim' - A deep and thoughtful acoustic track. If you don't like acoustic songs I'm sure you'd like this.
This mini-album has the lot!
Rock, Indie, Acoustic, Depressing, Soul lifting, Feel good songs, Amusing lyrics.....
What more could you want?! It's better than most full albums!

what a great idea. sell millions of albums (echo park) establish a solid fan base and re-release a previous album with extra songs and added empf! feeder fans will not be dissapointed with the bands original style and contrast in musical tastes. people who are newcomers to the band will see a difinative awe that has surounded the group for some time now. whateva... u will be struck dumb with hard hitting songs such as ''sweet sixteen' and 'chicken on a bone'' which took off when they were used in GT on the playstaion. A fantastic album with catchy lyrics and musical ability, u will be amazed. HONESTLY!

This is a stunning debut mini-album from a band that show so much potential. WIT kicks and from the opening note of Stereo World you know that it is going to be the best track on the album. I have never heard a better debut, and to not buy this is pure foolishness. OK, so its only 6 tracks, and not many people can play vinyl these days, but these 6 tracks on a proper record player capture the cream of todays rock/indie influenced music. The vinyl gives an authentic feel to the songs, and they do sound amazing. If anyone buys this and doesn't like it, come and see me so I can give you your money back. I'm that confident you'll love it.

I heard the original record swim and i thought it was fantastic, however you may not think it is worth buying a 6 track album, now you really have no excuse. If you have recently started likeing feeder and you loved Echo Park you should definately try this, but it is a lot different...it shows their heavier beginning but it still has their classic feeder sound. A must have for all feeder fans.

This is the re-release of feeders 1st mini album swim. It includes a few extra songs on it. The Main highlights are the fantastic Acoustic track Swim, Sweet 16 and Chicken on a Bone. However in my opinion, Forgiven is the most powerful and amazing song on the album. In fact with having all Feeders albums i can say that this song really does rank up there with some of the best. You must buy this Cd!

Running on the Success of 'Echo Park', Feeder Release their EP 'Swim' with 6 extra tracks. opening track 'Sweet 16' is a catchy song, with quite haunting lyrics about stalking; "her mind filled as she loaded the weapon, her mind racing she cried". 'stereo world' proves to be a heavy poppy song, with a great riff and a brilliant chorus. 'W.I.T (women in towels)' shows yet more of Grants Quirky writing and catchy riffs. Haunting track 'Descend' Makes another appearence, after appearing on 'Polythene', whilst 'Shade' is a hard hitting Grunge tune that could hold its own in the charts, with a mix of everything really. a slow section, memorable lyrics and hard hitting riffs really set this track apart. 'Swim' is one of those songs that takes a while to get used to, as a slow acoustic song, but really shows grants great singing. starting on the added songs, B-side 'Elegy' Proves to be the slowest song on the album, and a great calm down song, but doesnt flow at all into the next song 'World Asleep', which is probably the heaviest song on the album. More quirkyness as 'Chicken On A Bone' makes an appearance, and 'Spill' adds to the heavier side of Feeder's work. Ending Track 'Forgiven' is another slower song, much akin to 'Elegy'. as a bonus for those with a PC (who doenst have one these days :P ) there are two videos from the 'polythene' release, 'Crash' and 'Cement'. Overall a great album to pop on, and one to show feeder haters who think feeder are 100% soft
