Travis anyone?

I don't know how I got into their music, but I really like it. I was just wondering if anyone else enjoys their music too.

Under-rated band. Really good live. Simple songs, remember those things?

I think the mainstream and favored Coldplay over Travis keping them underrated.

I assume they are more popular in the UK/Ireland...none of my friends have heard of them...
Every now and then, I'll hear "Flowers in the Window" at the bar but other than that, I don't hear them anywhere.

All truth be told, I probably like them more than I like Coldplay.

Wish they would have stuck with Nigel Goodrich though.

I have always like Travis more. I think their songs are more eclectic.

I dig Travis, but haven't heard all that much by them. Side and Re-Offender are excellent.

They´re an ok band. I think they aren´t very energetic... Coldplay too, but see them live, they´re GREAT... I´ve never seen Travis live, so I can´t say if they´re great or not... altough they have very nice songs...

my favourite song is ´why does it always rains on me´

both cd's? There are more than 2


Felipe they are great live - better than Coldplay were IMO - but I seen Coldplay when they only began playing gigs I got tix the nite of the concert and it didnt even sell out for a tiny place. They were very energetic everyone was jumping, laughing having a good time....or that could have been the Guinness they were selling

yes please Mrs Clayton...I like them..A LOT, and am pleased they have a new album on the way.
I have told my Travis stories here before, about how Fran won my heart with his stories about "doing a turn with his eyelids" and about them programming RAGE and telling stories about the making of their film clips..."evil children and bi-planes" and the dead sheep
I particularly like the song/film clip of "Turn"..."don't question my chi man"
All I Wanna Do is Rock
Under 16 Girls
Driftwood
Sing

I just like 'em.
I saw the film clip for Re-offender last weekend. I got the warm fuzzies...kinda like seeing a cousin you haven't heard from in ages.
Travis
