"The Man Who" was Travis big breakthough album, containing no less than 4 top twenty singles; quite impressing! The album itself made it to the number one spot, after a slow start in the charts.

All singles are good, but my favourites are "Turn" and "Driftwood". The album as a whole is less rocking than the debut; in fact it is a rather quiet album. Among the album-tracks songs like "As You Are", "The Last Laugh of the Laughter" and "Slide Show" are likely to grow on you.

I know many fans disagree on this, but I still find "12 Memories" and "The Boy With No Name" more interesting albums.
