By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 1 2008
Format: Audio CD
Travis is best known for being one of the most downbeat Britpop bands in existance, and they've certainly earned that reputation.

But don't expect quite the same melancholic pop sound in their debut "Good Feeling." It's Brit-pop, all right -- happy rock, depressed rock, evenly divided between melancholy and joy. It doesn't have the musical polish of their later efforts, but it does have the infectious exuberance of a young band.

"Hey/I would really like to talk to you/girl/all I want to do is rock!" Fran Healy announces happily at the start of the album. That sentiment carries through the first half of the album, full of uptempo powerpop that ranges from the fuzzy "Good Day To Die" to the swirling melody of the title track. What they lack in experience, they make up in gung-hoety.

When it hits the midway mark, "Good Feeling" changes in tone -- it becomes less about wanting to rock, and more poignant and plaintive. Despite the bouncy poppiness of "Happy," the second half is overwhelmingly melancholy ballads, usually about the fragility of love. While not as much fun as the powerpop, these piano-led ballads are extremely beautiful.

Most bands sound awkward when they're still figuring out what kind of music they want to do. Travis wasn't one of those bands -- they sound equally good when they do sad ballads, and upbeat catchy pop. And though Travis later decided to do the melancholy music, if you listen to "Good Feeling" it's hard not to wish that they could include a few uptempo numbers too.

For a beginner band they were remarkably polished -- the piano melodies are exquisite, and they do some remarkable things with crunchy guitar riffs and some reverbing basslines.

I put this cd on my wish list after liking every song I had heard by Travis and recieved it for Christmas. The first half of the cd is hard, raw, and practically unlistenable. The 2nd half is mostly ballads but none as good as the new albums. You should listen to some samples of this album to judge for yourself but I really like Travis, but I really don't like this album.

In one word: Awesome!! The Travis debut is by far the best album that they have released!
Their different style (more raw and harder than later albums like U16 Girls and Good Day To Die combined with sensitive tracks like I Love You Anyways and More Than Us)is really addictive, well at least to me it is.
Tied To The 90's is a song which determined their style on later albums. The happy, poppy tunes found on The Invisible Band (for example Flowers In The Window) are definitely a result of this track.
Midsummer Nights Dreamin' is a song which I will sing on sunday morning :-)("had to much to drink")
My real time favorite on this one is by far the ballad More Than Us. Really that's a breathtaking song which gave me chills down my spine.
Having heard this album, I think it's a bit a shame that they didn't maintained this style. All their releases after this are really not bad, but this one excells! All I want to do is rock!
