Travis – Ode To J. Smith

12 11 2010

Listened: Monday October 11

As I’ve noted before, I have a love-hate relationship with Travis’ later works. The spark just isn’t the same. However, with J. Smith I think they’ve recovered at bit, or at least found how well they can excel without the spark. The songs are pretty (Song to Self and Before You Were Young are standouts) and Andy Dunlop is still kicking arse on the guitar.

I really dislike the album cover though – it just doesn’t seem Travissy.
