Feedback is the fourth & final studio album from Los Angeles-based hip hop group Jurassic 5, released on July 25, 2006. It is the only album the band released as a quintet, in the wake of Cut Chemist's departure earlier that year.

The first single from the album was "Red Hot", followed by "Canto De Ossanha" and "Work It Out." The album features many tracks which pay homage to their '80s hip hop roots.

All songs on the album, apart from two, contain elements of other songs. The most notable is "Gotta Understand", which contains elements and a sample from "Mr. Welfare Man", performed by Curtis Mayfield. Other examples are "Baby Please", which contains a sample from "Love & Happiness" by Al Green, "Get It Together", which contains elements from "That's The Way Love Is", originally recorded by Marvin Gaye, and Future Sound, which is based around the song "One" by Three Dog Night.

The UK Special Edition version of the album also contains a bonus track: "A Day At The Races - Live at Brixton Academy". Another UK edition contains "What's Golden", also recorded at Brixton Academy.
