Good but too much self pity
on 15 January 2014
There is no doubt that the Feeling produce some rollicking good tunes and from that point of view there isn't really a weak track on this album. In fact unlike some other reviewers, I find most of the tracks instantly memorable. After one listen I was singing along. There are some golden moments vocally as well. The rather controlled textureless vocals to which they are prone, give way to less controlled rock like gravel on some of the more soaring choruses. On other occasions they become quite intimate and fragile.
So why only 3 stars? Well, the lyrics are pretty mature and quite clever but they all seem to be of one theme - self pity after a relationship break up. After a while this starts to grate a bit and becomes quite annoying. So all in all, a pretty good effort but can be a bit too much to swallow lyrically.
