"On this 1979 album, the boys from the highlands are still churning out top quality precision grooves. On the song 'When will you be mine' Alan gorrie and Onnie McIntyre play some of the best guitar parts in the history of music (Quantized at birth)!! All this along with Hamish and the rest of the boys makes this an album that has amazed me every day since I first heard it (in 1979)! EVERY ONE IS A CLASSIC. Make these guys as rich as they deserve to be!!!!!"
A more mature AWB

""Feel No Fret" lacks the kinetic energy of "AWB" and "Cut the Cake", but makes up for it with a more thoughtful (almost melancholy) bluesy sound. Perhaps "Please don't fall in love" exemplifies this style best: funky and uptempo, which contrasts with the somber lyrics. This is also true of "Feel no Fret". "Walk on By" (a cover of the Burt Bacharach song) fits the album mood very well. I also like "Atlantic Avenue" (somehow this one reminds me of "The Girl from Ipanema" :-)), which is more carefree in tone. My favorite cut on the album is the upbeat "Ace of Hearts" which has a great string arrangement (by Arif Marden).On the other hand, "Too Late to Cry" (that's Luther Vandross supplying background vocals) is a little too melancholy for my taste. "Fire Burning" and "When will you be mine" are similar to work done on earlier albums: upbeat tunes with bouncy lyrics.I'd recommend this album to any AWB fan--a worthy addition to AWB's catalog that shows an evolution of the band's music and outlook."

"Wow AWB do it again the boys from Scotland are without doubt the best soul/funk band to come out of the U.K. shores. hamish and Alan along with the Dundee Horns not forgetting Onnie are sheer magic when it comes to creating original soulful sweet music. Feel no Fret has everything, funkadelis and melodic music all on one sleeve, please buy you will not be dissapointed my soul brothers. keep the soul searching Tom Edinburgh"
