Album name:The Man Who

The ultimate slow-burner, Travis's second album has become a hit in Britain despite (or because of?) its endearingly humble grace. Travis have developed from the Britpop also-rans of their debut, Good Feeling, into gifted pop craftsmen inhabiting a more suitably tired, lonely, lovelorn niche. 'Writing to Reach You,' 'Driftwood,' and 'Why Does It Always Rain on Me?' are endearingly meek, while 'As You Are' sounds like Radiohead's Thom Yorke swaddled in blankets, and the closing 'Slide Show' punctures rock mythology with an impossibly beautiful lyric: 'There is no design for life / There's no devil's haircut in my mind / There is not a wonderwall to climb or step around.' --Louis Pattison
