Album Review

With its smart combination of pop/rock proficiency and brightly layered vocals, Twelve Stops and Home yielded some of England's most omnipresent tunes of 2006. Several years before this debut's release, the Feeling were little more than a ski lodge cover band, serenading Swiss snow boarders with Top 40 hits in exchange for lodging and chump change. Assimilating the tricks of the trade paid off, however, and Home's 12 tracks brim with delightfully appropriated moves: a pumping piano riff from Supertramp ("Fill My Little World"), swells of harmonies à la the Bangles ("Love It When You Call"), a zany chord progression straight out of the Beatles' druggiest days ("Helicopter"). The quintet knows its strengths and caters to them at every turn, letting frontman Dan Gillespie-Sells helm a handful of ballads (his delivery is impeccable, especially on the bittersweet British megahit "Sewn") and showcasing the Feeling's biggest asset: harmony vocals. They stack their voices like a bubblegum version of Queen, mirroring each other's sighs and crescendos, even halting the music altogether for a few measures of polyphonic a cappella. The latter move is especially effective on "Fill My Little World," where a Merseybeat-styled chorus is smartly contrasted by a sobering vocals-only outro. This brand of bold-faced classicist pop is a tricky thing to pull off — especially in the wake of semi-jokesters the Darkness, who excelled in their craft while simultaneously making a mockery of it — but the Feeling have the chic (and perhaps the cheek) to do so successfully.

Customer Reviews

Finally from Across the Pond to Our Home Land

What an amazing band from the U.K. An incrediable debut CD. The sounds of today with a 70's twist...totally hot. I recommend the entire album, however, definately give "Never Be Lonely", "Love It When You Call", "Fill My Little World" and ofcourse the single "Sewn" a listen to. Wonderful...just wonderful!

Wonderful

I imported the UK version of this after getting impatient for the US release. This album is full of catchy pop with strong hooks and there are a few rock influences in places. The Feeling follow what seems to be a trend of having the British accent show through heavily in the vocals and it works very well. Stand out tracks include Sewn, Never Be Lonely, Same Old Stuff, Helicopter and Blue Piccadilly although there's not a bad track on the album in my opinion. Some useless trivia: The Twelve Stops And Home reference is to the number of stations the underground (or Tube) train will stop at before their fictional character gets home from work. Blue Picadilly refers to the London Underground Piccadilly line and the colour coding seen on underground maps.

What the hells up with the cover
