Continuing my list of favorite albums from every year I've been alive.
Travis: The Invisible Band
Slow year. In the absence of a decent Alternative station in the Twin Cities, I was still listening to the Adult Contemporary station and not liking the Nickelback and Hoobastank I was getting. The only two albums I enjoyed from that year I discovered through other means.
One was a movie soundtrack and I was introduced to Travis by a buddy who'd seen them live and loved them. I got to see them live myself when they opened for Dido and I loved them too.
(Calvin, I'm deeply sorry about the weaponized octopus in this video.)
Moulin Rouge Soundtrack
What the heck, let's do another (cephalopod free) video. It's not like there was anything else going on in music that year.
