Man... just incredible stuff.. Travis Meeks is fucking awesome.

Just listened to the first album all through whilst writing some bullshit essay... and it is definitely one of my favourite albums of all time.

I love how it's full acoustic yet doesn't have the usual slow, chilled out vibe of acoustic songwriters. And he plays amazing solos on the acoustic which I LOVE.

Any more love for Travis/Days of the New? :mrgreen:

    Great album but I always thought Travis was a douchebag. When the band broke up, he did ala Axl Rose and took the name with him which is why the other 2 albums barely got radio play and are almost forgotten about. I personally like Tantric which is Days minus Travis. Great album IMO.
    He who forgets will be destined to remember.

  • Yeah I know a few Tantric songs they are pretty decent but nothing comes close to the first DOTN album for me.

    My favourite Tantric song is "The One" with Kevin Martin from Candlebox on it. I love Candlebox.

    Days' first album (Orange) is definitely awesome, got me into the band. But I'm actually more of a fan of the 2nd album (Green). Every time I'm in the mood for some Days of the New I always turn to the Green album. I just love the progression Travis made.

    I saw them in concert last year and I have to say it was up there with one of the best concerts I've been to. It was unlike any other experience. They played in a small club and I was right in front of the stage. Travis has such a unique presence. The band played a mix of acoustic guitar and orchestral pieces, like a cello, and he acted like a conductor to the rest of the band.

    Love the Green album...But wish the Days would have all stayed together...But Travis thought he was better than the band...Well he was wrong cause now Tantric is much better than Days now...

  • Just listened through Orange and Green AGAIN

    I think this is my new favourite work music. I can't believe I forgot how much I loved this stuff.

    My favourite DOTN song? "Now" from Orange, amazing acoustic guitar masterpiece.

    Travis is a prick. He ruined a band that could have been great.

    Spot on! I love the first album. It's acoustic but still heavy as hell! Great drumming on it too. They could've been huge but I think things like the Metallica support slot went to Travis' head!

    anyone who refers to themselves as "Maestro" unironically has some ego issues. 
    I think I'll move to Australia
