    Gingerly picked this up off Safeways shelves yesterday. I say gingerly cos picking up the last album ,on the strength of the Buck Rodgers single I was severley disappointed:(

    But hang on, whats this its good, in fact its very good.

    Starts off with an oasis / wonderwall hook, then off into pearl jam some shimmering Radiohead type stuff, Travis, U2 and the Foo fighters. Beginning to sound like Jilly Cooper now.

    Some pretty heartfelt, emotional stuff here, Feeder laid bare. Im not sure if it was because of the drummers death, or if the whole band was just feeling that way. Its a bit like the Manics, Holy Bible album, but more upbeat.

    If you like good pop tunes, with an emotional edge, pick up a copy.

    Had the car test, 4 hours solid of constant listening and no boredom, just sounds better and better.

    Its not an indispensible album, but it does hold your attention

    Four Stars.

    No interest in Feeder. Apathy or dislike ? Somebody must have a comment.

    I agree, a very good album.

    I was a fan of the earlier Feeder stuff like Polythene & Yesterday Went too Soon. Echo Park was a bit of a disappointment.

    I got the new Feeder album from CD-WOW, which has two exclusive Japanese tracks and the slip case. So I recommend getting it from there as it is only £8.74!!!!!

    Apart from Fell In Love With A Girl, which had a good video and is about the same length as Blur's Song 2, couldn't find anything on White Blood Cells that I liked.

    As to Comfort in Sound, yes good album, but to my ears more of the same as Echo Park, which I thought was a bit of a departure from their ealrier stuff.

    Sounds like I need to buy myself a copy of Echo Park then.

    I didn't like their earlier stuff so I was shocked when I heard a few singles of CIS and liked them and then found out it was Feeder!

    Seriously, one track on that album I actually like, the rest are okay background music, but I draw the line at sitting down just to listen to the White Stripes.

    EDIT: Keep posting SG, 3 more and it's 6,000 posts!:D

    Sorry Squirrel, no insult intended. Thought you'd find it funny.

    As penance I'm forcing myself to listen to the tracks other than FILWAG on WBC - still don't like that album.

    Little Room is okay... at 0:50 minutes:seconds long

    I think I smell a rat okay... at 2:04 long

    Sensing a pattern I am as Yoda would say.

    I wasn't insulted. The reply was meant humorously hence the ":p". Oh well, never mind :rolleyes: :D

    Good lad. Which track is FILWAG?

    6000 posts eh? Good on ya.

    Fell In Love With A Girl
    on White Blood Cells - by the White Stripes.

    Bizzarrely the short tracks are better than the long ones, probably because I can only take about 2 minutes of Jack White's voice.

    No, dont buy echo park, theres only a couple of good tracks on the album. Buck Rodgers is great. but the rest is very dull, not in the same league as CIS.

    Without a doubt, I was amazed when I heard this album, always thought they had a lot of promise and this album was confirmation. Maybe it was due to the death of their drummer, who knows.

    I think Echo Park was a good album, got mine from CD-WOW (4 bonus tracks)
    My favourite track is TURN (6) - I could listen to this track all day (well nearly!!) definitely goes into my top 50.

    Got comfort in sound yesterday (CD-WOW £8.49) had one listen so far, first impressions?

    Tracks 1 + 2, already heard (singles) like them.
    Tracks 4 + 9, didn't like, sounds like its stuck, jittery? or is it my cd player?
    The rest average, but will probably grow on me with a few more listens:D

    My musical tastes??

    Started buying records in the late 70's, mainly rock music, but not to heavy (where you can understand the words!)

    Favourite bands of the time and since - Queen, U2, Meatloaf, ZZ top, Elo, The Jam.

    In general I like most types of music, except the popstars crap and the like, boy/girlbands etc...

    Albums purchased in the last year or so -

    Coldplay - both albums brilliant
    Red hot chillis
    Foo Fighters
    Feeder
    Nickleback
    Weezer
    Travis

    Most of the music I like is played on - the storm (ch860- sky) or at the moment on Q (ch453)

    P**s take away:D :p :D

    Not sure about Nickelback, good working band and the single is ok, but no one should bring back the mullet.

    Coldplay are ok if you like that sort of thing, Ive got chutes but I find it a bit ploddy.

    Weezer are good , Weezer r good:)

    Saw Travis at Newcastle, great night. I have 2 albums and 2 tab books..cant go wrong with simple chord progressions and strong song writing.

    Foos................cant get enuff of Colour and shape....also spend all my waking guitar hours in drop d tuning and found lots of Pistols stuff hidden in there. Ah Everrrlonnnng. Loads of power when live.

    The chillies Frusciante rules.....still think blood sex was the best...but its on its way to the secondhand shop.....only Joking;)

    They do, however, at least have a little bit of imagination in them- unlike your "review" of them. By all means, don't like Feeder, but please give a reasonable reason. Thanks.
