5.0 out of 5 stars Travis traverse a much different path..., 23 Oct. 2003
This review is from: 12 Memories (Audio CD)
I couldn't wait for this album. I've been a fan of Travis from the get-go. Good Feeling (their first album - hunt it down, it's pretty good) was a bit poppy but had some real gems (Falling Down is very powerful) but with "The Man Who" they really hit the top spot and I still play it almost daily. I wasn't overly impressed with "The Invisible Band" as it seemed too commercial and a very poor cousin to Coldplay's "Parachutes".
12 Memories changes all that though. On the first listen I was shocked. I was expecting (and hoping) for something as easily accessible as "The Man Who" - instant and powerfully emotive; not so with this CD. What you get here is a very dark collection of tracks which reward you with each listen. Favourites include "Mid-Life Krysis" with a melody that refuses to leave you and you'll find yourself humming it for days to come. "Paperclips" is quite experimental and you'll be hard pushed to find a darker track.
Get the CD but if you're expecting "The Man Who Two" you'll be initially disappointed - but stick with it and you'll grow to love Travis' new sound and style.
