"Singles" contains the hits from Travis' first four albums. A quite impressive string of hits. Some of them may have been somewhat overplayed, but most of the songs are still a pleasure to listen to.

It's worth noting that three songs are not found on any of the original albums. The great tune "Coming Around" was a non-album single released in 2000. Specifically for this release two new songs have been recorded. "Walking in the Sun" was released on a single and became another hit in 2004. The closing track "The Distance" is also a great song. If somebody had told me it was a new Ocean Colour Scene song, I would not have doubted this one minute.

A minor objection to the booklet is that I find it extremely difficult to read. Very little style and half written in yellow letters. Even with my best reading glasses it requires great effort to decipher the text.
