While Perfume Tree's Jane Tilley's ghostly vocal excursions meld effortlessly with the electronic milieu provided by Bruce Turpin and Pete Lutwyche, there is a slight element of sonic overkill in their patented, blissed-out sound. Actually, the trio's divine instrumental passages hold up quite well and draw the listener into an inverted omniverse of subliminal sound. With drum & bass interludes stacked on top of atmospheric drones and Tilley's vaporous musings, the whole experience can become a bit ponderous. While the stylized soundscapes evoke a profound, otherworldly perspective and their lush, synthetic environments are tailored to absolute perfection, Perfume Tree are often missing one essential quality: soul. Feeler is a mixed bag of sequencers, programming, guitars, and samplers. Decent ambient-funk-dub fusion with vocals, but not great. --Mitch Myers
Nice soothing, etherial electronica!

"I bought this album almost a year after buying their first release "A lifetime away". I must say that this one is certainly better. Perfume Tree bears alot of resemblences in atmosphere to the other Canadian act Delerium, except while Delerium borrows samples from everywhere else and is anything but original, Perfume Tree has a much more "authentic" sound (for lack of a better term). While Jane's voice isn't exactly emotional it is in fact soothing, and the album conveys images of being in a fogged forest with fairies dancing around me whenever I listen to it. Highley reccommended!"

"74 minutes of pure bliss: Feeler is excellent. Perfume Tree have made me re-evaluate the music I listen to. Feeler is easily one of the best albums of 1998, and I can't wait for more from Perfume Tree."

"It took a trip to Tower Records while in Vienna, VA, for me to find this delicious offering. I knew not what lay in store for me as I glided home listening to this cd, and it has rarely stopped spinning since. Best cuts: Both Oceans, Flooded, and Instantaneous. Greater things yet lie ahead, I'm sure......"
