Published November 25, 2004.TravisSingles(Epic)Although Coldplay largely stole the wind from Travis’s sails, this compilation serves as a reminder that this Glaswegian band floats on its own merit. From the smouldering first single “All I Wanna Do is Rock,” to the irresistible “Why Does it Always Rain on Me,” Travis exhibits an amazing sense of melody, something many others (hello, Chris Martin) were sure to take note of. Though it may be argued they’d be nowhere without Oasis, it can be said that the UK music scene would be much different without Travis. —Johnston Farrow
