By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 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.

Travis have quickly become one of the biggest musical success stories over the past five years. Their second album The Man Who became a multi-platinum seller, and follow-up The Invisable Band is looking to reach the same status as it's predecessor. But, let's go back to where it all began.
Their debut Good Feeling was released back in 1997 (AKA the year of 'OK Computer'), and sadly this became one of the saddest disappointments of that very same year. Not because it's a bad record, but because it was very underrated. This debut is actually amongst the best I've heard (and trust me, I've heard a lot!). It features the singles U16 Girls, All I Want To Do Is Rock, Tied To The 90's, Happy and More Than Us. The album starts off with All I Want To Do Is Rock, a very catchy and, well... rocky song. A very nice way of getting to meet the sound of Travis. If this one gets you going, the entire album will. U16 Girls is probably the heaviest song on the album. A brilliant one too. The Line Is Fine and Good Day To Die might even get your parents going! Fifth track Good Feeling is probably the best song there. It's a piano-led rock song, and it's just too bad they didn't release it as a single. This might have become a huge hit. Midsummer Nights Dreamin' is a bit of a disappointment. It just doesn't get to me.
Tied To The 90's is another very upbeat rock song about the historic view in music according to the band. Happy is another favourite of mine, although it might be considered 'too happy' by critics. I Love You Anyways, More Than Us, Falling Down and Funny Thing are to be considered a silent hint to where the band was leading to on their second album (The Man Who). Very 'mellow', yet beautiful songs which proves singer Fran Healy to be one of the greatest singers of our time.
Now, this album might have been perfect if it wasn't for that misstep (Midsummer Nights Dreamin'). Therefore I'm not giving it a 5-star rating. Actually, I really want to give it a 4½-star rating.

I bought this album 2 days after seeing them live in Singapore recently, where they completely blew my mind. Having so gotten used to The Man Who and more recently, The Invisible Band, I was frankly worried when Coldplay started the concert first, thinking that, much as I loved them, I was not looking forward to end the evening with "slow" songs. I could not have been more wrong. While the songs from the later two albums were given a new and brilliant lease of life when played "live", it was the songs from this album which really rocked the stadium. I never knew Travis played rockier songs (though "Blue Flashing Light" was a good indication), and frankly, on certain days I prefer this album to the other two. A must buy if you have the later albums - the collection would not be complete without it. It took me all of 24 hours to really love this album.
A Travis album you could dance to, with bits of head-banging thrown in for good measure. What more could you want??

travis' debut makes no bones about its intent to be a trad-rock album. maybe the best way to describe it is a 90s version of what the beatles would probably sound like if they recorded today. straightaway, loud guitar music thrives here, on the anthemic "all i wanna do is rock," and the exasperated "tied to the 90s." there is some real lyrical quality here, which you might not notice upon first listen. "u16 girls" is quite a number with its unabashed love for yes, younger women, although its cautionary message is probably meant as more humorous and innocent than serious; "i love anyways" is not standard and predicatable as the title might imply ("i think you should be framed in some fine art gallery / i know you disagree with me" for example is charming and beautiful at the same time). few tracks lag ("happy" is probably one of the weaker tunes, though outside of the chorus' lyrics it isn't so bad), as fran healy really can carry a song with his charisma, much more so than liam gallagher. his voice is affable and endearing, whether it's in a subtle whisper or a borderline scream. travis also manages to throw in a good amount of diversifying instrumentation, notably on "good feeling" and the wonderful closer "funny thing," which might be the album's best song. however, other that the charm this album has, there is nothing to truly distinguish it musically from oasis and standard classicist brit-pop fare. it's done masterfully, but it's not terribly innovative, though that's not to say it isn't enjoyable and worthwhile. as many point out, "good feeling" is much more of a straight-up rock n roll album than its successor, the subdued and principally acoustic "the man who." the albums complement each other and reveal a band that understands its roots and influences but isn't afraid to change things up, because repeating themselves is the last thing they want to do.
