To call it anthemic would be an understatement, some of these songs sound like they were written for 100,000-person strong revival. Unlike their debut, the instrumentation on A Certain Feeling holds its own ground up against the "choral hugeness", which is tempered enough that you don't break out into a full body sweat before the album is over. It is their first effort for Secretly Canadian (Jens Lekman, Songs: Ohia) who report:
"The strains that one can hear running through all of Bodies of Water's music are fully exhibited here; instantly familiar melodies, rich harmonic color, expansively deft arrangements, and compositions that ebb, flow, and double back on themselves in cathartic synchronicity. Though no two songs sound entirely similar, it's a cohesive collection that comes out feeling like the anthemic prog/gospel/psychedelic/kraut-tribal movie score that Ennio Morricone and Phil Spector never got around to collaborating on."
