I've got to say, when Travis first revealed Another Guy before anything else on the album, I was a little disappointed. I just didn't think it was a very good song to announce their comeback after being away for so long.

HOWEVER! Listening to it along with all the other songs on the new album has changed my opinion of the song. It just works so well sandwiched between Warning Sign and A Different Room!

Great album, Travis!

I am just the opposite. I loved it the first time I heard it. It's so different and I got really excited at the possibilities of what it meant for the album. But then I heard "Where You Stand" (the song) and was disappointed in how "safe" it is (if that makes sense).

Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy this album! And "Where You Stand" (the song) has really grown on me (and sounds great in context of the rest of the album). But Another Guy still sticks out (in a good way) and still has me thinking about what a whole Travis album leaning that way would sound like. Maybe it's just a production thing? I don't know.

I think it's weak. I've tried to get into it but can't really. It's not a bad song at all, it just has no oomph. Either side of it Warning Sign and A Different Room both have soaring choruses and a big, full sound and it kind of works as a bridge between them, but it's still my least favourite on the album.

That was my roundup too.! But as I have said in an earlier post , the appeal to different tastes makes the group and its albums versatile.

I like it. Not my favourite and certainly not my least favourite. It's good though. Always liked it since I first heard it.

To me, it's the "Get Up" of this record. I know no one cares for that track (which I love), but that's how I see it--few lyrics, nice groove.

To me this is simply the best song on the album and the bands best song for a long time. I love the motorik drumming, sounds a bit like hallogallo by Neu! I can give/take the rest of the album and won't be seeing them on this tour, it'll be too sedate. Looking forward to the 20th anniversary tour of Good Feeling though :)

Oh I never thought of that! Do you think they'll do something?
