"A Curious Feeling" is the debut solo album from Genesis keyboardist Tony Banks. It was released in 1979 on Charisma Records.

The album is loosely based on the book "Flowers for Algernon" by Daniel Keyes.

The instrumental piece "From the Undertow" was used in the 1978 British movie "The Shout", for which Banks, with Mike Rutherford, composed the incidental music. No soundtrack of the movie is available. The piece was originally intended to be the intro to "Undertow" from the Genesis album "...And Then There Were Three..." (hence the title), but it was omitted from the song.

The cover design is by Hothouse, and the cover painting is "Wuluwait - Boatman of the Dead" by Australian artist Ainslie Roberts.

The album was recorded at ABBA's Polar Music Studios during a brief Genesis hiatus.
