 Travis - Where You Stand
Album Title: Where You Stand
Label: Red Telephone Box
Released: August 19, 2013

“Where You Stand” is the seventh album from Scottish band Travis.  The band had not put out a new album for five years before this.  The songs on this album sound very similar to other British pop-rock bands such as Keane or Coldplay.  All of the tracks sound very mellow, while still managing to be upbeat and catchy.  The first track, “Mother” is one of the slower songs on the album, followed by “Moving”, which is a little more upbeat and and vibrant.  The whole album sounds like something to listen to on a roadtrip to the beach.  “Where You Stand”, the first single from this album, follows the same theme as the rest of the album, very mellow rock verging on pop.  The lyrics on all of the tracks are those of wisdom and peacefulness, accepting the experiences they have gone through in life.

Track number nine, “On My Wall” is one of the more poppy and catchy songs off of the album, which sticks to the summer, beachy feel, followed by “Boxes”, a much more laid-back track.  Every track on “Where You Stand” makes the listener feel relaxed, yet engaged in the catchy melodies.  The consistency of quality tracks on this album makes it a success, and enjoyable to listen to all the way through.  The popularity of this album among listeners and critics proves that although Travis took a five year break, they are still here to stay.
