Early songs paddle along nicely
on 24 July 2001
For those who own the original Swim EP, I can tell you one thing - you have the best songs from this album. Swwet 16, Stereo World and Swim are the standout tracks full of the promise which Feeder have now fulfilled. However, new fans of the band may be surprised at how heavy the trio used to be. World Asllep and Chicken on a Bone chug along harmlessly enough with frontman Grant Nicholas' vocals distored for an effective atmospheric feel. Spill proves to be one of the more absorbing tracks with a very recognisable early Feeder feel to it. The video's are a welcome bonus, and we also get to see a very grungy looking Grant, long hair an' all! A good album which is likely to be much more appreciated by diehard and early Feeder fans than the new breed who have got into Buck Rogers / 7 Days In The Sun. The price makes this all the more appealing, but new fans - be warned - this is no Echo Park so don't expect the songs to be as 'pop'.
