The Feeling – Sewn (CD)

The Feeling must be the next big thing in Britain. “Sewn” just has that feeling, as if Shayne Ward was blended with Snow Patrol and Orson. This means that while the track conforms to the basic tenets of what “rock” is, there is enough in the way of pop influence to make this track a big splash in any radio charts in which it finds itself. The track will not be anything that individuals will sing along to after listening to it only one time. However, if this track gets repetition on radio stations, I can see where individuals will be able to grow into appreciating this track. The Feeling can put together a track nicely, but I believe that a full length album will help them establish their own sound better than anything else that they can do. The radio edit that is the functional B-side to this album does not bring much Their full length is dropping at the end of February, so it will be interesting to see whether this album will do well based off of “Sewn” or not. The band has ability but it does not always transfer to success on this track.

Rating: 5.8/10
