Feels is the second of what I see as the “big four” of AnCo’s discography; the four albums that would lead to them being seen as one of the 2000s greatest pop artists.

Favorite tracks - Did You See The Words, Grass, Bees, Banshee Beat, Turn Into Something

Least favorite track - probably Daffy Duck
