Album Review

The songwriting polarity of the Feelies was always fairly clear — Glen Mercer's tracks delivered the speedy post-punk jangle and frantic monotone vocals, while Bill Million's backed off into slow atmospherics and ringing arpeggios. With Wake Ooloo's debut LP, this becomes even clearer — thankfully, Mercer backs down from the mainstream excess that hampered the final Feelies albums and returns to more muscular indie sound that marked his Feelies compositions, and Hear No Evil turns out even more appealing than certain Feelies records.

This leaves Hear No Evil as their most appealing, if least polished, record.
