Overview

The first solo effort from Travis frontman Fran Healy, Wreckorder is a soft, moody, and introspective affair that draws upon Healy's taste for melodic singer/songwriter pop and alt-folk. Hewing closest to the darker, less radio-friendly aspects of Travis' catalog, Wreckorder may be a bit of a challenge to fans hoping for something along the lines of such catchy Travis songs as "Sing" and "Why Does It Always Rain on Me?" That said, there are certainly some standout moments here, including Healy's duet with Canadian chanteuse Neko Case on "Sing Me to Sleep," the brooding, rolling anthem "Shadow Boxing," and Sir Paul McCartney's bass-playing cameo on the wry, tango-meets-reggae ballad "As It Comes." Healy's yearning, earthy croon is well intact here, and although he doesn't try to upstage his main band's act, longtime Travis fans and anybody in the mood for heartfelt, smartly crafted folk-pop should find much to enjoy on Wreckorder.
