Drowned in Sound

If staying true to yourself and writing an impeccable collection of songs that make the world that we know glow in a translucent blue hue is wrong, I don’t wanna know what’s right.


This stretch of songs is the liveliest collection Travis has cut since the '90s, and it's heartening to hear them reconnect with some of the wilder aspects that informed their earliest records.

The Line of Best Fit

For the most part, Where You Stand is made up of eleven pleasant songs that will more than satisfy long time fans. 

No Ripcord

Their comely melodies are too soundly crafted to fall into much of the technical gimmickry you hear on FM radio, just as they’re too benevolent to win the hearts of modish indie fans. But what they do have is the ability to take a good portion of both opposing ends, which ultimately wins any majority.

Consequence of Sound

Where You Stand reflects a band at peace, but it’s peace achieved through having successfully endured its share of bumps in the road.


On the whole, it’s business as usual; a collection of brilliantly composed melodies that just lack the gravitas to lift them higher. 

proving that they're still the best in the genre
