Travis' Good Feeling is often overlooked and most people don't even realise they existed before The Man Who but that's no reason why this superb album should be neglected. The sound is neatly summed up by the first track 'All I Want To Do Is Rock'. This album has flashes of early Radiohead and the gritty sound and Fran's vocals on tracks like 'Good Day To Die' and 'Good Feeling' will surprise a few Travis fans but there are also the bouncy sing-a-long songs like 'Tied To The 90s' and 'Happy'. The quieter songs like 'More Than Us' and 'I Love You Anyways' are simply sublime and make the album worth adding to your CD collection.
The rough guitar sound, which is laced onto most of the tracks, makes sense when you consider that the album was released in the Britpop era of around 1997. The album has soaked up the contemporary influences and produced something genuinely engaging to the auditory senses. The first track I heard by Travis was 'U16 Girls'. I thought they were brilliant and deserved mainstream success. I almost thought they wouldn't make it because this album sank when first released but they proved me wrong!

There are two reasons why I've always argued that this is the greatest debut album ever made. Firstly, there are a lot of debut albums that I've not yet heard, so I'm open to the possibility that one day my opinion may just be subject to change. Secondly, and probably more importantly, it's stupendous. It does everything a debut should do; buzzing with the kind of joyous euphoria that only a bunch of scamps enjoying their first crack at the whole rock 'n' roll thing can convincingly pull off, whilst being undercut with just enough melancholia to ensure that (if you'll pardon the mangled metaphor), once the pop fizz has dispersed, there's still plenty here to get your teeth into.
For a neat summary of the Travis gameplan, look no further than opening track 'All I Want To Do Is Rock' - the teenage dream summed up in seven words, and we're not even past the first song title. And then there's 'U16 Girls', a cautionary tale of the dangers of underage seduction, but wrapped up in a pop melody so shiny you can see your face in it. Another key moment comes at the end of 'Midsummer Nights Dreamin'', a tumultuous ode to youthful excess. As the song shudders to a joyously noisy climax, accompanied by crunching guitars and Fran Healy's increasingly yelped vocal, you can't help but wish they'd let themselves go like this on their later albums; when they do, the results are spectacular.
To finish things (Travis not being ones to do things by halves), instead of one traditional end of album slowie, we get four.

Good Feeling was released at the wrong time. It was Christmas, Spice Girls brought out their debut, and new number ones were coming out very quickly. This is why not much is known about it. However, if you listen to it, if you are not a Travis fan or a slight Travis fan you will become to be one soon! Good Feeling from the Scottish band includes great songs such as All I Want To Do Is Rock and U16 Girls. Well worth buying!

For new bands these days, it seems that they HAVE to make a big impression with their first album, or they will never sell a record. This was not the case with Travis, but despite the fact that they had to wait for a few singles from the excellent "The Man Who" to start selling before they were recognised, the debut album has been a sleeping giant that is finally getting the attention it deserves. OK, so it's not as emotionally charged nor as good as "The Man Who", but "Good Feeling" is an enjoyable piece of indie, and quite possibly the happiest album ever (even "Good Day To Die" can't spoil the mood). The opening three tracks get you in the mood, before winding down throughout the album, until the end where "More Than Us" suggests a hidden desire to write more material as featured on "The Man Who". Buy it, but not before you've bought "The Man Who".

Travis, for most people, began with The Man Who. Radiohead comparisons sprouted left right and centre, people droned on about how repetetive the band were... and yet nobody seemed to pay much attention to the band's debut (superior) album.
Good Feeling delivers its namesake. It's NOT the Travis you may be familiar with, with none of the folk inklings of Invisible Band and hardly any of the groaning lows of The Man Who. It's a lot of knees up, tongue-in-cheek lad rock, boasting no-nonsense tunes like All I Wanna Do Is Rock, U16 Girls and Tied To The 90s. Fran Healy has some fun lyrics here, and yells his head off in the louder parts of the album... something he's never seen to do in the later, quieter two albums.
Why the band chose to break with this selection of ideas and go for the Radiohead approach is beyond me, as I'd much rather listen to something like Tied To The 90's than Slide Show. Not to say there's anything bad about Travis doing quiet, sweet songs - they're good at ballads so why complain. It's just people who bought further albums based on this were probably disappointed, sorely missing delirious strumalongs like Happy, and overloaded with a few too many More Than Us's per album.
This is unmissable stuff for fans, and probably a nice diversion for most people. My favourite moment is Funny Thing, which successfully blends both Travis styles... and should their fourth album come out any time soon, I'm personally hoping it takes a step or two back in this more promising direction.
