4.0 out of 5 stars Evolution, my boys, evolution, Oct. 29 2003
This review is from: 12 Memories (Audio CD)
It's quite clear that Travis are evolving as a band. One could see that from their first three albums, but with their fourth disc, it becomes undeniable. Some may quickly write this album off because it isn't as radio friendly as TIB. Well, my friends, TIB didn't have any material nearly as 'in-depth' as some of these songs. Fran and the boys have not written a song as intensely poetic as 'Walking Down This Hill' in a long, long time. 'Happy to Hang Around' rocks out, especially during their live sets.
This album also sees the band voicing a political opinion. While not necessarily shared by all, it is just one more step in their evolution as a band. They aren't just churning out crap - these songs have meaning.
In short - 12 Memories is an excellent CD well worth your time and money. You won't be disappointed. If you quickly write this off as 'not as good as TIB or TMW', maybe you should go grab some Nickleback or similarly shallow music to hold you over. Give it a listen or two (and a real good listen), and I guarantee you these songs will grab you.

This CD is really quite amazing. There isn't anything more to say than that - go experience it for yourself. You won't regret it.
