Felt: Forever Breathes The Lonely Word (Creation)

Mark Sinker, New Musical Express, 11 October 1986

...(ROCK IS dead?) I think we can do better than that. The thing about Felt (which was that they sounded like everyone else) hasn't changed. It's just that the use of it has. It's just that Lawrence, who's been scrunching down a whole bunch of ancient voices into his own for a long time now, Reed & Dylan & Verlaine & Peter Perrett, you know the list, well, he's added himself to them this time.

Total word count of piece: 341
