4.0 out of 5 stars Good! Feb. 1 2005
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Travis is best known for being one of the most downbeat Britpop bands in existance, but their debut "Good Feeling" is Brit-rock -- 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Travis pre-Travis Sept. 29 2002
Format:Audio CD
The Travis who composed "the Man Who" is barely recognizable in this loud, strong, and unmistakably emotional freshman album. And that's not a bad thing. Here, Travis shows off their harder side, and some of their best songs can be found on "Good Feeling". "All I Want to Do is Rock" is one of the best opening tracks I've heard, and the questionable "U16 Girls" is an excellent example of a more-rock-like Brit-rock song. "Tied to the 90s" makes me really happy for some reason, but the best songs are unmistably "More than Us" and "Good Feeling". "More than Us" is slow and sentimental, but Fran Healy's vocals soar, and it really is a prelude to later softer albums. "Good Feeling" gets the privelege (hehe) of being the first song I ever managed to teach myself on the guitar. It's elation and spite and rancor all mixed together in one big [angry] but I'm happy anyways anthem. I think people tend to be disappointed in this album or in "the Invisible Band" but I certainly found "Good Feeling" a thoroughly exhilirating delve into Travis' more rock-esqe ventures.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Lovin' Travis Sept. 9 2002
By Gaz
Format:Audio CD
Travis first became really well known with The Man Who. It was by no means a bad album, it had high points and fairly demonstrated what Travis were about. But most people manage to dismiss them on the strength of that album, ignoring this, their much better debut.
Good Feeling is about just that: cheerful indie rock, with dashes of quiet ballads and some fun lyrics courtesy of singer/guitarist Healy. In comparison to Man Who, this is a fun loving Travis, with anthemic rock numbers like U16 Girls, All I Wanna Do Is Rock and Tied to the 90's. There's decent singalong stuff like Happy and The Line Is Fine. Sadly the album becomes rather samey in tone once More Than Us arrives, with following tracks Falling Down and Funny Thing (which are good songs anyway) following in the same pattern. The album might have been better with a stronger ending, perhaps if they put Happy or Good Feeling (the fabulous title track) as the finale.
There's loads of energy in this, which is admittadly lacking in Travis' two follow up albums The Man Who and The Invisible Band. It's heavier, takes itself less seriously and is more fun to listen to. Whether it's better than The Invisible Band, which is a much more smooth sounding, polished album, I'm not sure. But it's definite that if you like Travis, you cannot be without this first, brilliant effort.

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. Read more

Although Travis is one of my new favorite bands, for the benefit of those just discovering them, their debut has to be measured within the context of all their work. Read more
