Travis debut album is rock music by the numbers. The band aren't concerned with new trends or the styles of the day but just with making straight up rock music. This is why the album is so good.
The singles All I Want to do is Rock (more rockier Radiohead song), U16 Girls (Stonesesque sleaze), Tied to the 90's (Britpop in 1994), Happy (simplicity) and More Than Us (lovely folk) are all excellent. Tied to the 90's especially is a wonderful stand out on the album.
The first half of Feeling is the rockier bit. It is all good with the exception of Midsummer Night's Dream. The second half is lovely, morose, introspective music. More than Us, Falling Down, and especially I Love You Anyways are among the albums high points.
Overall Good Feeling is the sign of a great band with even greater things to come. When I saw them at the Reading Festival they played a new song, Flowers in the Window which showed a lot of promise.
Good Feeling should be big in the States but once again, pig headed radio dj's can't seem to play anything British. It's a shame because it's all better music.
Noel Gallagher claimed Travis were genius and with this album you can see why.

Travis is best known for being one of the most downbeat Britpop bands in existance, but their debut "Good Feeling" is Brit-rock -- happy rock, depressed rock, evenly divided between melancholy and joy. It doesn't have the musical polish of their later efforts, but it does have the infectious exuberance of a young band.

"Hey/I would really like to talk to you/girl/all I want to do is rock!" Fran Healy announces happily at the start of the album. That sentiment carries through the first half of the album, full of uptempo powerpop that ranges from the fuzzy "Good Day To Die" to the swirling melody of the title track. What they lack in experience, they make up in gung-hoety.

When it hits the midway mark, "Good Feeling" changes in tone -- it becomes less about wanting to rock, and more poignant and plaintive. Despite the bouncy poppiness of "Happy," the second half is overwhelmingly melancholy ballads, usually about the fragility of love. While not as much fun as the powerpop, these piano-led ballads are extremely beautiful.

Most bands sound awkward when they're still figuring out what kind of music they want to do. Travis wasn't one of those bands -- they sound equally good when they do sad ballads, and upbeat catchy pop. And though Travis later decided to do the melancholy music, if you listen to "Good Feeling" it's hard not to wish that they could include a few uptempo numbers too.

For a beginner band they were remarkably polished -- the piano melodies are exquisite, and they do some remarkable things with crunchy guitar riffs and some reverbing basslines.

"Good Feeling" is a fun solid debut. First of all I'd like to say I bought this album when it first came out before Travis got lots of hype. When I first got it, I thought it was average but revisiting it I like it even more. It's an album like "Definitely Maybe" by Oasis that is just fun sing-along pub rock that you listen to after work on a Friday. While the songs may seem up beat. You really can listen to "Good Feeling" weather you're happy or sad.
The first three songs :"All I Want To Do Is Rock", "U16 Girls", and "The Line Is Fine" are the best songs on the album. They are all single worthy songs and will get you addicted to this album right away. "Good Day To Die" shows a more darker side of Travis that isn't so apparent on "Good Feeling" but heard more on "The Man Who." "Good Feeling" has a nice piano touch and is the heart of the album. "Midsummer Nights Dreamin'" reminds me of a song right out of the 60s(Possibley The Who or even early Beatles.) "I Love You Anyways" and "More Than Us" show the more softer and lighter moments of "Good Feeling."
While I like the way Travis are headed; I hope they go back to the raw energy of rock heard on this album. "Good Feeling" is much worth your money and will give you great pleasure to listen to.

I became a Travis fan after seeing and MTV2 clip of Why Does It Always Rain On Me? I bought THE MAN WHO and fell in love with the melodic, acoustic, free-spirited songs. So naturally I bought GOOD FEELING. I was disappointed. It's hard for me to belive it's the same band. While THE MAN WHO is lyrically strong, sounds polished, and well produced; GOOD FEELING sounds more like an unrehearsed English grunge band. No doubt, it's great rock and roll with some toe tapping tunes. But if you are searching for more of what you love about THE MAN WHO, I don't think you are going to find it on this disk. I took the time to listen to all the Real Audio clips on amazon.com and failed to trust my instincts.
