Vinyl LP pressing. 2012 release, the fifth album by this band led by former Faith No More member Roddy Bottum. Feel the Sound succeeds completely at it's goal, plainly stated in the collection's title. From the exhilarating, propulsive "Runaway, " which features the entire band on lead vocals (how many other groups can make that claim?), to the expansive final statement of "Overtaken," Imperial Teen feel the sound themselves and, in turn, make the listener feel it in ways immediate, pleasurable, and haunting. ELO-like symphonic pop has become a touchstone for everyone from Justice to Cut Copy, but Feel the Sound; makes it manifest through live instrumentation that possesses a Krautrock level of intuitive synchronicity and a desert island jukebox's sense of fun.
