5.0 out of 5 stars A gorgeous summer album, 2 July 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Invisible Band (Audio CD)
Travis seem to have decided upon thier direction now, after the very heavy guitars and shouting vocals on their debut album 'Good Feeling' to a complete mellow (perhaps rather sombre)sound on 'The Man Who'. This album follows on yet there seems to be more opitmism with very simple pop songs such as the single 'Sing' and an old b-side revamped 'Flowers in the Window'. There are a few tacks that do conform to peoples perception of Travis beeing another band to be taking infuence from the Radiohead misery, tracks such as 'The Last Train', which is very depressing and 'Dear Diary' which is very moody and almost slightly dreary. However there are some brilliant songs on this album. 'Side' is rumoured to be the next single and what a fantastic choise, full of wisdom and a very catchy chorus to say the least. There are no songs that stand out as having the almost 'amthem' like status such as 'Why Does It Always Rain on Me' from 'The Man Who', yet with the summer festivals aproaching 'Sing' could become a winner. Other tracks that I think are outstanding is the brilliant 'Humpty Dumpty Song','Afterglow','Follow the Light'and the lovely 'safe' with the brilliant line "A dolly mixed Up man with rotten teeth". This really is my favorite album at the moment.
