Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

With "indie" rapidly becoming a by-word for "whinging", it's refreshing to hear an album like the Feeling's debut. People who come to this album having only heard the catchy-yet-downbeat single "Sewn" might find the jaunty, upbeat tone of the rest of this album a refreshing surprise. Twelve Stops and Home is pure, summery optimism, with most tracks bouncing along at a happy, head-nodding pace, and packed to the brim with simple, singalong lyrics, including the liberal use of "la-la-la" and "na-na-na". Sure it's lightweight, but that's no bad thing--it cuts like a ray of sunshine right through the knee-hugging depression of contemporaries Coldplay and Keane, with whom the Feeling are sometimes, bizarrely, compared. Instead, Twelve Stops and Home is a pop album straight out of the 1970s, played by young men with guitars and a piano. Which explains why "Fill My Little World" and "I Want You Now" are so cheerful, sounding like Squeeze would have if they sang about puppies. On Twelve Stops and Home, the Feeling may not be out to change the world, but they're happy to make it a bit brighter. --Ted Kord

Product Description

The Feeling's debut release has shipped close to 800,000 albums outside the U.S. and is already double platinum in the UK. They were also the most played band on UK radio for 2006! The Feeling may very well have recorded the album of the year. Twelve Stops And Home is an outrageously tuneful, joyful, loving album. Its 12 tracks play, almost without xception, as a greatest hits set of AOR power ballads and FM pop singles.' The Word (UK). 'Soft Rock is the new Punk and the Feeling are its Sex Pistols.' The Times (UK).

4.0 out of 5 stars Feels good September 18, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The Feeling are another one of those bands that I was introduced to on the Tonight Show. Although I don't remember what song they performed (it was probably "Sewn"), they sounded good, so I decided to check out their album Twelve Stops and Home.

As I listened to the album, I was wondering if a few of the songs had homoerotic undertones; a notion that was somewhat confirmed upon learning that lead vocalist Dan Gillespie is openly gay -- but seeing how I'm an LGBT rights supporter, that doesn't bother me; also, I forgot exactly what songs gave me that feeling, which makes it even less important. Anyway, aside from "Sewn", there are other great tracks like "Never Be Lonely" and "Helicopter"; and "Same Old Stuff" is far from being just that. But if you want songs that are just plain catchy, try "Anyone" or "I Want You Now" on for size.

The guys also do a good job with ballads, like "Miss You", "Blue Piccadilly" (the song that inspired the album's title) and especially "Rosé". Speaking of slow songs, though, I really couldn't follow "Kettle's On". Technically, it's NOT a slow song; it's, well, it sounds like a faster song that got slower due to a dubbing error. But the greatness of the rest of the album overshadows that, so Twelve Stops and Home is worth stopping into the record store to pick up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feeling like something different? March 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD
"With people of limited ability modesty is merely honesty. But with those who possess great talent it is hypocrisy." - Schopenhauer

It's refreshing to see that a band with such an obvious capability for power pop songwriting and instrumental ability also has the audacity to use it, especially when to follow suit in the genre is to "play it down." For some time now, it seems, the preferred aesthetics in indie and alternative music have tended towards understatement, simplicity, and fairly static dynamics. The guitar solo is, of course, taboo. There are exceptions to these rules, but I don't think I have heard one as uninhibited as The Feeling. (Certainly you could count the Darkness, but there's so much sarcasm in them and the public's acceptance of them.)

These twelve songs are intricate, deliberate, and infectious in their chord patterns and melodies and generally upbeat in tone. The choruses are huge and energetic, and the vocals soulful. Instrumentally, the execution is precise and yes - there are guitar solos. Basically, these guys are everything their peers are not, and in something of an ironic twist, they have the potential to make a lot of the indie and alternative out there look just a wee bit uptight in comparison. It's a fun record, and I would recommend it highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Pop Euphoria August 22, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is like molten sunshine infused into my veins. Or a head-rush of pure cane sugar from a syringe. It has excellent harmonies, great layered vocals, and is so catchy you need a jackhammer to jar the melodies out of your brain. I don't normally like radio-oriented pop, but this album has excellent musicianship and the songs are incredibly enjoyable without giving your teeth a cavity. The first eight songs are delightful and even a little poignant. Even though I lean toward progressive rock and metal, I will definitely buy "The Feeling's" next CD, if only to get respite from the crunchy metal riffs that have caused permanent damage to my psyche. Listening to "12 Stops and Home" is enough to cure any amount of angst brought on by angry alternative bands, cell phone malfunction, or too much foam in your double caramel mocha latte crappuchino.

5.0 out of 5 stars The 80's are BACK! April 8, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Ok, so the 80's aren't *really* back, but the song craft here is very reminiscent of late 80's/early 90's pop rock tunes. Not full of this political angst or pretentious lyrics. Songs about love and heartache full of catchy beats and hooks.

This album originally came out in the UK before it dropped here. Actually, I prefer the UK cover. Much more interesting. I believe the new US cover makes the album a little generic. And this album is anything but generic.

Twelve Stops and Home starts with the soft, pensive tune "Sewn". An interesting word to choose to replace "hooked" or "whipped". It's not the opening showcase I'm used to hearing on new albums, but it definitely showcases one of this group's strongest assests: Dan Gillespie Sells' entrancing, light, airy vocals. A lot of emotion goes into these vocals, and unlike some vocalists who's airy voices tend to betray their lack of conviction, you can tell that Sells feels what he's singing. This single did them quite well in mid-2006 in Europe. I can see why.

The second track, "Never Be Lonely", definitely grooves on that 80's vibe, with a stuttered vocal hook and plinking melodies that seem to beg for easier times. "B-b-b-b-baby, I think I'm going c-c-c-crazy. Why should I be sane without you?" Cute and clever songwriting like this is practically littered across this album, as if they had TOO much creativity and didn't know what to do with it all, so they just threw it everywhere.

"Love It When You Call" is one of my favorite tracks on this album (which is a tough call to make when it is just chocked full of amazing songs) featuring a fast-paced 80's-like power chord and solo-style breakdown. The lyrics are cheesy but appropriate. This song is perfect.
