All Music Guide - Matt Collar
Next to Coldplay, no other band was as successful in disseminating post-Britpop in the early 2000s as the Scottish four-piece Travis. Ironically, starting out as a neo-trad rock outfit on its 1997 debut album, Good Feeling, the band soon experienced a kind of soft rock epiphany and by its 1999 follow-up, The Man Who, was pursuing a decidedly more low-key acoustic sound. Centered around the delicately sanguine vocals of Fran Healy, Travis found radio-friendly currency with such melancholy anthems as "Why Does It Always Rain On Me?," "Sing," and "Flowers in the Window." However, despite a knack for catchy melodies and heartfelt lyrical sentiments, Travis albums often have a ...

However, despite a knack for catchy melodies and heartfelt lyrical sentiments, Travis albums often have a "samey" quality, which makes Singles such a pleasant addition to the band's catalog. Featuring every one of Travis' singles -- including the aforementioned hits -- as well as a new cut, Singles works as a great introduction to the band, hitting all the high points while avoiding any mid-album filler. Of course, some memorable album tracks like "Safe" can't technically be included here, and fans will have to wait for the inevitable "best-of" disc for a more complete Travis picture. Until then, Singles will do just fine, thanks.

    A reviewer

    Travis was a band I got hooked on while trying to find something else to listen to other than Oasis and it turned out that they became my now favorite band. The lyrics are great and have a smooth flow throughout all the songs, some of which are deep and meaningful and romantic while others are just about having fun. The best part was after meeting them, they turned out to be really nice and are there for the fans. If you like The Beatles or other forms of Brit Pop then please do yourself a favor and give this a shot, you can thank me later.
