This review is from: The Invisible Band (Audio CD)
It is possible to miss this gorgeous music or to dismiss it as something that sounds good but is not your thing. It is just not cool enough and a bit too accessible and pop like for you too be into Travis, you might say. That would be a huge mistake on your part. Some of their most beautiful and ambitious songs can be found on their latest Ode To J. Smith album (it is 2009 now) and I have a feeling that it will not be very long for Travis to shower us with more jewels. I am choosing this album The Invisible Band because it contains even more great songs on it that either The Man Who or Ode To J. Smith (obviously that is a matter of personal preference). I hardly ever listen to any Travis album from A to Z. I much prefer to listen to this kind of music as part of my... greater listening experience, by mixing it with things...less accessible. However, some of the most beautiful songs I often hear, I hear when I load my Travis compilation into my cd changer. My favorite songs of Travis are: Before You Were Young, Luv, Side, I Love You Anyways, Turn, The Humpty Dumpty Love Song, Quite Free, Driftwood, Battleships, Chinese Blues, Sing, The Last Laugh Of The Laughter, Safe, Slide Show, Afterglow, Re-Offender, More Than Us, Dear Diary.
