I think this album by Travis is their closest to perfection. There are songs different than the ones on earlier albums, the ambient of album is more dark and lyrics deal with more serious themes. Good songs are:
"Re-Offender[/album]" - reminds me of early Radiohead, it has awsome guitar riff at the begining, playing with vocals in the verse and in chorus - wonderfull contrast
"[track artist=Travis]The Beautiful Occupation" - a little weaker than previously mentioned one, the instrumental reminds me a little bit of Interpol, and song has a dose of trip-hop as well as some other tracks on albums have, plus great guitar work after the middle.
"Mid-Life Krysis" - dark lyrics and melody and one of the best choruses by Travis. I also like the sound of harmonica in the background.
"Love Will Come Through" - this one doesn't have any instrumentation especially distinctive, but lyrics and singing and alltogether makes this one really catchy song. …
