Uncut - 9/03, p.1225 stars out of 5 - "...This is pop music sustained by an abiding faith in the way the beautiful and the mundane can interact, and by a vision that's at once camply tragic and unfeasibly ambitious. A band build for posterity..."
Mojo (Publisher) - 7/03, p.1183 stars out of 5 - "...'Penelope Tree' and 'Sunlight Bathed The Golden Glow' married the early albums' shimmer and pop nous to dizzying effect..."

The wry, confrontational, occasionally morbid and meticulously arranged Stains on a Decade collects 15 of Felt's most immediate singles from both their Creation and Cherry Red releases. The perpetually below the radar post-punk/jangle pop pioneers were unashamed to wear their eccentricities on their sleeves, a notion that permeates each and every cut on this long overdue compilation. From the thin and chilly landscapes of their 1982 debut Crumbling the Antiseptic Beauty to the melodic, evocative and intimate Me and a Monkey on the Moon, Felt always managed take the road you didn't even know existed, a tactic that fuses each one of these tracks together, despite the ten-year span in which they were created. ~ James Christopher Monger
