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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Feeling mediocre March 5 2002
By Tom
Format:Audio CD
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.
The incredible unevenness of "Good Feeling" hits you with the first two songs. A solid opener with big, broad chords of worthy of an anthem --"All I Wanna Do is Rock"-- is followed by the simply embarrassing "U16 Girls", in which Travis invokes the tired subject from rock n' roll mythology of fantasizing about jailbait high schoolers. Complete with "nah-nah nah" choruses, it is truly not one of their finer moments. The middle of the album is strong, with "Good Day To Die", the title track, and "Midsummer Nights Dreamin" all being some of the bands best up tempo numbers. These are book ended by serviceable, if unspectacular tracks like "The Line is Fine" and "Happy", but the album is dragged down by the obvious filler of "Tied to the 90's" (complete with soccer chants).
The album's real saving grace are the four quiet numbers located towards the close of the album (who sequenced this anyway?). These songs show that perhaps, this type of music-- which they latched onto for two subsequent albums-- is really their forte. Whether it's the quiet beauty of "More Than Us" or the building closer "Funny Thing", these tracks, along with the better tracks mentioned above, are essential listening for fans of this band.
Put simply, those looking to explore Travis should start with "The Man Who" and then decide if you want (almost) more of the same on The Invisible Band, or check out the band developing their identity on this album. Hopefully, Travis will rediscover the best about their louder selves and find a way to give us both types of music-- thereby showcasing all of their strengths-- on their next record.
