Feels So Good maintained Atomic Kitten's status as one of the U.K.'s most successful pop groups, with a pair of number one singles and another that reached number three plucked from it. Their first album recorded with Jenny Frost is nearly as solid as Right Now, with more playful chemistry evident between the three members. (Frost replaced original member Kerry Katona, who departed after the debut became a success; oddly enough, once Frost settled in, Right Now was redone and re-released, with her vocals put in place of Katona's.) Though the three biggest hits -- "It's OK!," "The Last Goodbye," and a cover of Blondie's cover of "The Tide Is High" -- are well-executed, easygoing pop songs, the group is at its best when it takes on the role of a modern disco act (as heard on "Feels So Good," "Love Won't Wait," and "Softer the Touch"). Like the debut, this album wasn't issued in the U.S. Instead, Virgin combined highlights from the two albums for a self-titled quasi-compilation, released in 2003. Despite the fact that Atomic Kitten's singles are often as strong as the ones from the popular U.S. acts, the disc did nothing to establish them as a successful act in that country.

I'm a Lizzie McGuire fan too and when I heard "The tide is high (get the feeling) from the Lizzie McGuire Movie I loved it!!! I started getting into Atomic Kitten and I think this is the best CD! There is not one bad song on this CD. My favorites are, "The Last Goodbye", "It's OK" and "Be with You".
The song "The Tide is High(Get the Feeling)is the coolest song EVA!!! ive listened to that song about a million times and i m still not sick of it. The tide is high but im holding on, im going be your number 1, im not the kinda girl who gives up just like that, oh noooooo. That is a great thing to take a blondy song and turn it into a awesome pop song! Go kittens!
i bought it last week and since then i just cant stop listening it. My whole family enjoy the cd. My favourite track is THE TIDE IS high. I also bought some singles in the UK and some albums. There the best!!!if you can buy their single in Uk , dont waste time...you ll love it like i do (prove im wrong)!!!!!
YOU SHOULD SOOOOOOOOO BUY THIS IT IS THE BEST CD EVER!!!! i REALLY like atomic kittens' ITS OK AND THE TIDE IS HIGH AND THE WHOLE CD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This album is really cool! I first heard of Atomic Kitten by I'm a HUGE Lizzie McGuire fan, and their song was in the movie, so I checked out their album and it rocks!
I don't think I'm your average AK fan, since I'm 37, but I absolutely love their music. "Be With You" is a fabulous track that I sometimes put on repeat. I also like "Feels So Good" and "The Last Good-bye" quite a bit, but there isn't a bad song on the CD. I have both of their UK releases as well, and it's very clear that the Kittens are maturing and improving as artists. I can't wait for their next release. I've listened to this CD pretty much every day since I got it. These three can really sing, their voices are distinctive, and the harmonies are beautiful.
