Probably my favorite Felt album. Reissues of the final 5 albums coming sept. 21st! Wallet already hurt!!
Sounds nothing like the ersatz Soul moves of Lloyd Cole.Felt have always sounded a little like Lou Reed and Mark E Smith fronting Television with a bit of this and that thrown in.Deebank left and the sound changed as Duffy joined, both are sides of the same coin.Personally I love the Cherry Red Felt but it's different for everyone.
I concur with LordRockingham here. This record is definitive later Felt. An ecstatic, unrivaled album with few stylistic precedents. I'll never forget listening to it on the headphones for the first time...blissful! Ushered in new brainwaves and a new favorite band.
I had to check twice that I wasn't listening to a Lloyd Cole & The Commotions record. Quite different from their debut "Crumbling The Antiseptic Beauty" that was more in the vein of The Durutti Column/China Crisis. Maybe not so strange that Felt never quite managed to break through, as they couldn't find a voice of their own.
So you recognise the similarity of Lawrence's voice with Lloyd Cole's and concluding that Felt didn't have their own 'voice' (sound). Ho hum!One of the greatest albums ever recorded imo - up there with Forever Changes, Pet Sounds etc Beautiful. exhilarating and fresh as the day it was recorded! A reissue is long overdue! Warning: It sounds a little bit like Lloyd Cole unless you've heard Bob Dylan, The Band, tons of other great 60's bands and other Felt recordings.
