UK Release date
US Release date
  1. 10.0 |   Gig Soup

    To be cut in the same studio as grunge royalty Nirvana, PJ Harvey and Pixies was no doubt a privilege for Bognanno and her band, but with this record Bully have proved that they are ready to join their ranks

  2. 9.2 |   Paste Magazine

    Feels Like is a debut of the same melodic stripes as Weezer’s Blue Album, and it comes as a package deal with all the emotional honesty and intensity of their Pinkerton

  3. 9.0 |   No Ripcord

    This refreshing, thoroughly relatable take on the art of growing up will genuinely be a contender for Album of the Year come December

  4. 8.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    They’re sounds we’ve all heard before but done spectacularly. Couple that with Bognanno’s fearless honesty and Feels Like is an explosive debut that demands your attention

  5. 8.3 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Simultaneously youthful and weary, its bubblegum melodies punctured by Bognanno’s stark lyrics and abraded voice
    Read Review

  6. 8.0 |   NME

    An album that revels in the simplicity of a great pop song while cleverly articulating the everyday truths of 20-something life
    Read Review

  7. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    The directness of Bully's songs — both emotionally and melodically — is their strongest asset, but it's tough to argue that Bognanno has any discernable weakness when it comes to her music

  8. 8.0 |   Spin

    It’s hard to imagine a better record to stone and dethrone the three reigning M’s of ’90s indie: Malkmus, Mascis, and Martsch

  9. 8.0 |   Under The Radar

    It is one thing to have influences, it is another to utilise them effectively and to push genres back towards the sunlight
    Read Review

  10. 8.0 |   Q

    This blistering debut strongly suggests the arrival of a major talent. Print edition only

  11. 7.8 |   Pitchfork

    Feels Like doesn’t reference any specific dates or weather, but it feels like a summer coming-of-age album

  12. 7.5 |   A.V. Club

    An apt successor to a great band that’s had some of its luster stripped
    Read Review

  13. 7.4 |   Earbuddy

    There's plenty of fun to be found on Bully's debut
    Read Review

  14. 7.0 |   PopMatters

    Alternative rock nostalgia gets a sunny facelift on Bully's debut full-length album
    Read Review

  15. 7.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Like Chastity Belt or Colleen Green, Bully hot-wire the roar of 1994 pop punk
    Read Review

  16. 6.0 |   All Music

    There's no questioning that Bully are very, very good at what they do, but Feels Like is an album from a band that still seems to be maturing into its own musical approach
    Read Review

  17. 4.0 |   The Guardian

    It’s not that Bully are diffident – they attack the songs with enough vim to clean a bathroom – it’s more that their clothes have been borrowed without being customised in any way
