4.0 out of 5 stars Their best album in years, 5 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Generation Freakshow (Audio CD)
I'm a huge fan of Feeder, and this album takes me back to the sort of songs that got me into them in the first place. Combine the energy and anthem-style choruses of Echo Park and Yesterday Went Too Soon with the more grown up and powerful sound of Silent Cry. Some of their best material is on this album. Two downsides, a couple of the songs are just a little bit too long. And, as is a staple of a Feeder album, whilst some of the lyrics are great, some of them don't make an awful lot of sense!! A really good album though, such a different sound to everything else around at the moment

5.0 out of 5 stars If you even vaguely like Feeder, buy it!, 17 May 2006
This review is from: Singles, The [+DVD] (Audio CD)
First things first, this is a brilliant cd. You couln't ask for a better entrance to it - Come Back Around, Buck Rogers, Shatter - and from then on you realise just how many fantastic songs Feeder have actualy written. Not only in number, but variety - compare Tender to Just a Day, or Forget About Tomorrow to the superb Insomnia... you get pretty much every emotion and every mood you could hope for from an album. In fact, if Suffocate and Just a Day swaped places you'd have a near-perfect live set list. As for the two new songs on it - Burn the Bridges and Save us, they have a lot more in common with 'old' feeder with the jump-along guitars and the arena-kareoke chorus, but they've clearly developed that sound so its a lot more raw and in some ways more adventurous. The weakest track on here I would say is Suffocate (its ok but I'm just suprised they didn't go for something from right back at the start instead, like Crash or Cement). As for the DVD, it goes back in reverse-chronological order of videos which lets you really see how the band grew in confidence (and, indeed, in hairstyle/fashion sense... I think they're one of the few bands thats actually got cooler as they've got older)... check out the orange shirts and Grants long greasy black hair in the Stereo World video, thats all I'm saying!

Anyway, to round it up - If you've just heard a few Feeder songs on the radio recently buy this CD, you might not like all the tracks straight away but you will love most of them. it will be in your stereo for months. If you already have all the Feeder albums, there's only the 3 new songs on here..that said, they are great songs and with the bonus of the DVD it makes it more than worth it. That said, if you've been a fan of Feeder since Polythene or Yesterday Went Too Soon the chances are you've already clicked the order button. You won't be disappointed.
