Travis - Ode To J. Smith: Wikipedia Album Entry

"Ode To J. Smith", the 6th studio album by Scottish band Travis is 11 tracks of their loudest, edgiest and most arresting record yet. The album was recorded at Rak Studios in London and produced by and mixed at Electric Lady Studios in NY. Fran Healy says this album was "born out of a rush of creative urgency, a need to make a record; it has to be amazing...the most cohesive thing we've ever done. When you move so quickly, there is little time to reflect. You have to be decisive." In 12 years, Travis has sold ten million records, numerous accolades, headlined festivals all over the world.
