    You know, that Scottish band with kind of a radiohead sound...
    I think they'e really good... I love the fact that their songs are short and simple, they're easy to enjoy.
    Anyone else who likes them? Or am I the only metal fan who does...

    I´ve never heard of them before reading this post... The only Travis I know is a Country artist.

    If you want something simple and melodic to play in the background and not demand your undivided attention, they're good. Ideal for easy listening and relaxing...

    Yeah, i think they're quite good. I've got the "The man who" on minidisc, it's ok and the latest album is enjoyable, above all the latests track:The humpty dumpty love song (I know it's spelled wrong :p )
    So Northern Lights, whom do you like more:Radiohead or Travis?
    And why?

    The humpty dumpty love song is one of my favs, actually, so nice taste! :D
    Actually, I haven't heard enough of Radiohead's music to really compare it to Travis... so I can't say which I think is the best. I'll just stick to saying that Travis is my fav... got all 3 of their albums, and I gotta agree with Kveldssanger; they're ideal for relaxing and easy listening :)

    They blow nuts and have nothing in common with radiohead except the fact that they're white guys.:devil:

    Their first album "the man who..." was alright, got a bit boooooring after that. Although if you want to hear something funny, as a B-side to "why does it always rain on me" they did a cover of "Hit me Baby" or whatever it's called from Britney Slut. Kinda makes it sound alright, a really sad and lonely song.

    they're alright, The Fear and the bonus track on 'The Man Who' album are 2 of my favourite tracks, brilliant. but i only really like half of that album and none of their other stuff. but still good for that.

    what little i have heard of travis i like, i am a radiohead fan, but i think that travis is more of an acoustic band than radiohead, so i try not to compare
