The five tracks that I've heard are great, more "Invisible Band" than "12 Memories". Gosh "12 Memories" sucked balls.

I really didn't care for 12 Memories , but I really like what I heard from the song from the link above. Hopefully the rest is as good!

I like all their albums. "Closer" is a good song, but its not exactly blowing me away. This band has been so underrated, I hope they finally get the attention they deserve. I would kill for a Travis/Muse tour in the US.

Love this album. It's funny though how the Nigel Godrich produced tracks are head and shoulders above the rests (Closer, Battleships).

Nope, just one bonus track, "By The River", hidden after about 5 minutes of dead space after "New Amsterdam".

I'm there. Travis is a great live act. The last time I saw them they came out for an encore and asked the audience what they wanted to hear. Some girl screamed for "I Believe In A Thing Called Love" by the Darkness so they just improvised it for 5 minutes. Good times.

I've been listening to this album and just don't think it's very good.

The first album, The Man Who, and Invisible Band are heads & tails above this.

They need to have Nigel Godrich produce the whole album. That guys is one of the very best.

I'll agree to disagree. I think the album is great. But yeah, it would be in the league of The Man Who, or The Invisible Band if Nigel produced the whole thing.

I'm hoping they'll release all the Nigel produced B-Sides, then I can make my own compilation.
