I LOVE Travis. Yeah, the lyrics may not be God's gift to the music world, but who says they have to be? They are a lot clearer than a good deal of the stuff out there. Their covers of "The Weight" and "The Urge for Going", as well as a hilarious acoustic version of "Hit Me Baby One More Time" have been excellent. I'd have to say my favorite Travis songs are: Safe, More Than Us, Turn, Flowers In The Window, Only The Faces Change, All I Wanna Do Is Rock, and Happy.
Great band...not the musical gods one would have to be to receive recognition on Mudcat, but they are excellent are forerunners in the British New Acoustic Movement that features the likes of other personal favorites of mine Badly Drawn Boy, Coldplay, Turin Brakes, and Doves.
