The Way I Feel Today is the third album by English indie rock band Six by Seven. It was released in 2002 on Beggars Banquet Records in the UK and Mantra Recordings in the US. The band's first album as a four-piece following the departure of guitarist Sam Hempton, it showcased what was in part more song-based, commercial approach following the building, atmospheric drone rock of previous albums The Things We Make and The Closer You Get. It includes the single "I.O.U. Love", possibly the band's most pop-orientated to date.
