Felt

"Contrary to popular opinion, I think Lawrence is a great vocalist. His voice is left unadorned and it hangs perfectly in balance with the minimal, delicate instrumentation of the band."
A Unique Mood

"I happened upon Felt in college back in 1984. It took a few listens (did I really ENJOY this vocalist?!), but I became hooked and haunted. I was delighted to come across this cd, which is actually two vinyl albums combined. The second half, "The Splendour of Fear", was my first Felt acquisition and it continues to mesmerize."
Some great music, but no cover art

"I bought this two-for-one disc before the Felt reissues were available, and I became intrigued enough to eventually buy more Felt releases. The guitar sound is wonderful. I hate to use a cliche like "shimmering," but there you have it. It's as if the notes are materializing out of the air, rather than being the result of fingers striking against metal strings. The dark mood will appeal to fans of albums like the Cure's "Faith" and "Seventeen Seconds." These first two 30-minute albums are an excellent introduction to the band. I caution against buying this particular package, though. For one thing, the absence of cover art is a crying shame. Music this good does not deserve to be deprived of its original cover art, which is now available with the reissues. You will pay more to buy the discs separately, but if you value good cover art, it will be worth it. And if you buy one of these albums, I strongly suggest the second one, "The Splendour of Fear," which has much stronger songwriting than the first. All six tracks are winners, especially the longest one, "The Stagnant Pool," which sounds like a precursor to the Cure's song "Disintegration." Felt's third album, "Strange Idols Pattern and Other Short Stories," is also an excellent starting point, being more song-oriented than these first two."
