Feelings Are Good And Other Lies is the debut solo album by John Taylor, released by DeMuzik in 1997. The album was later re-released in on the Revolver label with a new cover in 2001.

About the album[]

This was John Taylor's first solo project after leaving Duran Duran in January 1997, in which he writes and performs all the tracks.

The album was originally marketed by mail order relying on word-of-mouth among Duran fanzines and online communities, but released later on a large record label.

During this period Taylor was struggling to end his long addiction to drink and drugs, a problem he wrote about in the song "Trust The Process". The title track "Feelings R Good" was included on a Japanese only record label sampler CD, issued in November 1996.

The original 1997 version features front cover photography by Mario Sorrenti.
