5.0 out of 5 stars Frantastic, 16 Aug. 2002
This review is from: Good Feeling (Audio CD)
Helpfully, Travis have neatly summed up several of the songs here in the titles; All I Wanna Do Is Rock is a manifesto they stick to well for the first half of their implausibly stunning debut album, the joyous exuberance practically oozing out of the speaker cones. Happy? Good Feeling? If there's one thing they may be guilty of, it's stating the blindingly obvious. But they have a dark side, with the likes of Good Day To Die and the jaw-droppingly, heart-stoppingly gorgeous closing quartet of songs (interrupted by 'Happy'; this is a pop album after all) reminding us that even the sunnniest of skies can harbour a few clouds now and again. Travis have given this album everything, and the results are liable to make you wish you really could live forever, if only to listen to this on repeat until the CD player wears out.

3.0 out of 5 stars Writing to sell records to you, 7 Aug. 2002
This review is from: The Invisible Band (Audio CD)
Everyone loves Travis. Beacuse they write the kind of warm, fuzzy songs you could take home to your parents - comfort blankets for the ears if you will. Trouble is, we know they're capable of more. Like on Last Train, hinting at Fran Healy's dark side, and (whisper it quietly) an edge to the songwriting. The same edge, in fact which Good Feeling had in spades (so to speak). So while there's pretty melodies by the shedload, and no doubt your milkman will be humming Flowers In The Window for weeks to come, we want the scuzzed-up anger of Blue Flashing light, or Falling Down's naked vulnerability, not the mid-tempo comfort zone which prevails here, fine if you want to shift units but somehow missing the spark we know they have.
