  1. Largely extraordinary... They write ornate and soaring conversational love songs, full of heart, bittersweet observation and unashamed street-level Englishness.
  2. There's something appealing about their brand of music with its light, sunny harmonies and direct choruses.
  3. Textbook soft rock. [Jul 2006, p.111]
  4. 60
    There are mooments... when you get the feeling The Feeling will soon achieve more. Or rather, MOR. [Jul 2006, p.97]
  5. [They] are so busy trying to be Supertramp they've forgotten to add anything of themselves. [3 Jun 2006, p.35]
  6. Quite simply, this record is the devil's spawn incarnate.
  7. Relentlessly bland and bourgeois, "Twelve Stops And Home" sounds like the product of focus-group analysis.

    Great album with some catchy tunes :) What more can be asked. As long as your not a close minded vegetable you will like this album. And yes that is a direct swite at those giving this album bad reviews. Expand

    This is a pop album. That's right POP. Precious indier than thou comments kind of miss the point really. This isn't meant to be cool or odd or anything other than what it is. You won't get from this what you may get from Aereogramme or Mogwai. It is unashamed, big chorus sunshiney loveliness. Delicious. Expand

    I do question why many of the reviewers would even have picked up this album in the first place. It doesn't try to be any thing other than a bunch of hooky and sometimes reflective pop songs, every one lovable in its own way. It surely only appears pretentious to the pretentious! Not cool but it is fabulous. Expand

    If I was worried about what other people thought of my musical tastes, I'd give this a one. Thing is, I don't give a crap, so it's a big fat eight. Fun tunes, perfect for those dull, dull days. Expand

    I would rather roast my testicles over a blazing inferno than listen to Twelve Stops and Home. Possibly the worst compilation of crap going, and theres pleanty of that going around at the minute. Never be lonely is also one of the most unimaginative, relentlessly repetative and fucking appaling songs I have ever heard in my life. Expand
