The definitive Felt record
Every Felt record has at least some great moments on it, but I'd have to say that this is their masterpiece. Odd as it may sound, I honestly believe that they were the best band in the world when they put this out, and I think they even realized it. The whole record is triumphant sounding, fueled by spirited drums and organ fills. The first four tracks are bright and optimistic, while the second half of the record is darker and more haunting. There are those who just can't get into Felt because of Lawrence's vocals, so that would be my only flag here. You'll know right away if that's a problem for you. For me, this is one of the top records of the 1980s.
