Par Blaster of Muppets TOP 1000 COMMENTATEURSMEMBRE DU CLUB DES TESTEURS le 12 octobre 2008
Format: CD
On entend à propos de ce "Ode to J. Smith" que c'est un album rock, qu'il est un retour aux sources d'une intensité rare, que c'est le premier album de Travis entièrement composé à la guitare électrique depuis des lustres, etc... Bon, tout cela n'est pas faux mais il convient de nuancer un peu le propos.

Il est vrai que le démarrage de l'album est légèrement plus rugueux que ce à quoi le groupe nous a habitué ces dernières années. "Chinese Blues", qui ouvre le disque, est avant tout un excellent morceau, avec sa mélodie au piano entêtante, ses guitares un peu plus en avant que d'habitude et son joli refrain. De là à dire que c'est une déferlante rock... faut peut-être pas exagérer non plus.
La deuxième chanson "J. Smith" surprend à son tour, notamment avec son accélération de tempo, son solo de guitare et ses choeurs (façon opéra) en plein milieu du morceau. Là, c'est clair, Travis n'avait jamais fait cela auparavant, et force est de constater que c'est diablement réussi!
Pareil avec le troisième extrait de cet album, le single "Something Anything" aux guitares plus énervées qu'à l'accoutumée. Compo très efficace, carrée, très bon refrain... bref, excellente chanson, encore une fois... Alors? Suis-je en train de me contredire? Non, pas tout à fait.

Car la suite de cet album (bien agréable, il est vrai) est un peu moins forte et surtout moins surprenante. Ce n'est pas pour dire du mal de Travis que j'écris cela, je trouve l'album assez bien comme il est.

Il est décevant de voir un artiste ou un groupe baisser les bras ou de sentir l'inspiration lui échapper.
Après deux ou trois derniers albums réussis et des singles en pagaille, Travis revient avec ODE TO J SMITH et l'on ne peut que constater que le groupe a perdu de son aura. C'est assez plat, soi-disant rock (pff!), et aucune mélodie n'accroche vraiment l'oreille. On sent vraiment que Travis a raté le coche et que les groupes à la mode (Coldplay, Radiohead ou même Oasis) jouent dans une autre catégorie que la leur. Alors qu'il y a quelques années, ils étaient quasiment au même niveau.
Alors on se console avec des compos quand même bonnes pour certaines (LAST WORDS ou FRIENDS) mais l'album reste largement en-dessous de ce que le groupe pouvait offrir auparavant.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Travis - Ode to J Smith 18 novembre 2008
Par T. Snyder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
I remember back in college, in 1999, I was at the Wherehouse and picked up The Man Who (dang, it doesn't seem thaaat long ago). Anyhow, I still absolutely love "The Man Who"; it's an absolute classic and it still sounds great today. It's aged extremely well. I have enjoyed everything since then - but not so much the Good Feeling debut though.

But after this newest release, Ode to J. Smith, I'm left feeling kind of disappointed. It's not that I dislike it, but rather, I don't love it. Usually I love everything they've put out since The Man Who. And yes, some people might complain and say they had gotten kind of mopey, sappy, over-dramatic at times, but hey, that's what I liked about them!

Ode to J. Smith is definitely way more rock, more electric, more louder than what I was expecting. I'm so-so on the first half, but at track 6 "Last Words" it starts sounding a bit more like a traditional Travis album, with a sweet banjo thrown in for good measure. I definitely liked the back half better than the first.

I've listened to it a half-dozen times now (which is made easy by the short running time) and I'm just not rah-rah-5-star-loving this, which makes me sad. Gone are the beautiful choruses, gone are the beautiful sweeping soundscapes. I'm just not sure I'm going to be listening to this several years from now like I do with most of their other albums.

I was introduced to Travis by way of "Why Does It Always Rain On Me?" in early 2000. I rushed to buy "The Man Who" and was completely satisfied with that album. The following year I was first in line to get "The Invisible Band" and was equally, if not more, satisfied. I went back and got "Good Feelings" and was slightly disappointed. "12 Memories" was somewhat disappointing as was "The Boy With No Name".

So, here is "Ode To J. Smith", right on the heels of "The Boy With No Name" a year and a half ago. I'll admit this is a grower. On first listen nothing really grabbed me, but upon closer inspection, several songs began to sink their hooks into me like the album opener "Chinese Blues", "J. Smith", "Long Way Down", "Last Words", "Quite Free", "Song To Self" and "Before You Were Young". The rest I continue to struggle with just exactly how I feel about them.

The sound of this album isn't exactly a stretch for the band. In fact, they still sound maudlin and morose in too many spots. Sure there's hints of "Good Feeling" since the band utilizes more guitars this time out, but really, it's not that much like "Good Feeling".

After mulling this album over all week long, I find that "The Man Who" and "The Invisible Band" remain my favorites. "Ode To J. Smith" is neither here nor there. It's not bad, but it's not great, it just is. I keep wondering if this is it for Travis. I feel they are a talented band that could do so much more, but this is the third album in a row that has been just okay. To me, Travis have the potential to be bigger, but they don't pick great producers and engineers, and the band doesn't seem interested in trying to be more experimental with their sound. They don't seem inspired to push the limits of their particular brand of music.

And that's what makes "Ode To J. Smith" so disappointing. If they did this in two weeks, and this was the most original thing they could come up with, maybe it's time to call it quits. Sure, I noticed a small bit of experimentation on "J. Smith" with the orchestration and chorale segments, but it seemed tacked on, not well thought out. It was interesting for, oh, 30 seconds, and then it was gone.

So, I'm hoping against hope, that the next album bears better fruit. Here's where I place "Ode To J. Smith" in context of Travis's other albums.

1997 Good Feeling: Four Stars
1999 The Man Who: Four Stars
2001 The Invisible Band: Four and a Half Stars
2003 12 Memories: Two and a Half Stars
2007 The Boy With No Name: Three and a Half Stars
2008 Ode To J. Smith: Three Stars

Par David Rhoads - Publié sur Amazon.com

I am a huge Travis fan. I have been for about 10 years now. There are few people that were as excited for this album as I was. Man, it seems like I'm in the minority on my opinion, but this album is just awful.

In all honesty, it sounds like they wrote these songs in about five minutes and recorded them the very same day. The melodies are unlike other Travis stuff. In this album they are super lazy and forgettable. There are probably two memorable melodies throughout this whole album.

The production is so bare and boring. The quality of recording is very low, as well. I know they were trying to do the whole raw, analog, thrashy sound for this album, but it just doesn't work for them. They just aren't a rock n roll band. They are in genre of their own, and it seems like they were trying to be somebody else for this album.

I have probably listened to this album about 10 ten times, and no matter how hard I try, I just cannot get into it. It's just not good.

For those of you who praise the album, ask yourselves this question: Do I really love this album, or am I just trying to like it because it's Travis? The bottom line is this: I would be willing to bet that for almost all Travis fans, this album will be long forgotten after a very short period of time, and the truly good albums, (the last four) will continue to be listened to.

Stop kidding yourself. Do you seriously think this is up to par with Invisible band........ Is it even close????????

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Ode to a Great Album 6 janvier 2009
Par Coheteboy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Like most TRAVIS fans, I came in during the time of Good Feeling and The Man Who -- those two albums quite literally opened my eyes as I found the music and the band I've been craving.

The weird thing about "Ode to J. Smith" was that it didn't strike me as a TRAVIS album at first. Each album prior, even '12 Memories', was met with one listen being enough to say "yes, this is Travis and I love this band." "Ode to J.Smith" didn't do that for me. I had initial disappointments and said flat out that this was more or less the same, but just not as good.

But that said, the songs haunted me when they weren't being played. My ears were telling me to put that album back on again and really, I couldn't stop playing the record for days. It is indeed a fantastic album that is different but somehow familiar. You cannot simply say that this album is like "The Man Who" or "The Invisible Band" or "The Boy With No Name". It has a sound of its own and it shows that the band is trying new things, which is a great sign of longevity. If I had to put a label on this one, I would say that it's like they were at "12 Memories" and kept building upon that.

There may not be your iconic Travis ballad here but what you have are songs that are musically more rich, instrumentally more vibrant, and lyrics that are more meaningful. "Ode to J. Smith" is just an extension of the incredible library they've provided so far and if it all ends here, I'd think that they ended right before they hit their highest level. I can't wait to hear what else this band has in store for us because I know it's going to be their best work.
