The Definitive Collection: Days of the New

Reseña de álbum

For a brief period in the late '90s, Days of the New ruled the airwaves with their mix of post-grunge attitude and swampy acoustics, sounding for all the world like Alice in Chains circa Unplugged. "The Down Town," "Shelf in the Room," and "Touch, Peel and Stand" all propelled the group's self-titled debut to platinum status, where it shared the spotlight alongside Creed's My Own Prison and, one year later, Fuel's Sunburn. The original lineup dissolved on tour, however, leaving Travis Meeks to recruit new members for both Days of the New II and Days of the New III, neither of which could match the first album's success. The group went on hiatus in 2002 and re-formed several years later, opting to whet its audience's appetite for a promised fourth album with this retrospective, The Definitive Collection. While all the charting singles are present, it's hard to imagine anyone viewing this as an essential album, since most fans already own the three studio efforts that precede it. If anything, The Definitive Collection highlights how inconsistent (or wildly eclectic, if you're a fanatic) the band has been since 1997. The murky grunge songs that open the disc give way to the orchestrated tunes of Days of the New II, eventually coming to a puzzling close with the quasi-prog experiments that Meeks tackled on his third album. Those itching for their '90s nostalgia fix should seek out the band's debut instead.

One of the most talented musicans we hear little about.

Travis Meeks had a huge future ahead of him - some compared the original Days Of The New band to Soundgarden in their glory days. I am not sure if it was drugs or Travis' arrogant yearning for musical expression, but Meeks didn't want the big music scene with Hollywood glam and #1 hits played all over the radio. Travis wanted HIS own music put to record and listened to... he didn't want a big label music rep telling him what to put on his records. That was one reason why the original Days Of The New backing band members left and went to form Tantric after just one album released. Travis put together 3 albums - yellow album (the first and most recognized), green album and red album. Each CD/album had different colors. The albums were not each given a title/name. Travis had his own personal issues & problems... but his musical expression and his desire to take his music to a level of self expression was in my opinion masterful. His latter two albums (green & red) put you in the seats of a theatre with an audio stage. Each album represented a musical score broken down into several tracks for your CD player's convenience. While you may ponder some of his lyrics, you can't deny his acoustical composition and arrangement (blended smoothly with the eclectic rock and orchestral accompaniment) are some of the best we've heard in past decades. Originally a grunge hard rock fan, Travis developed his acoustic sound after he was founded by a band member of R.E.M. who gave Travis the opportunity to grow his talent and signed him to his own major record label, Outpost. After Travis got out of rehab a few years ago, he started production on a 4th album (purple in color).... hope we get to hear this album one day.

SARA THINKS

Travis's music has that organic quality that allows one to listen to it over and over; hearing new things as you change as a person. his lyrics are unique and profound; holding a wisdom beyond his years. this CD has a lot of his greatest songs on it. in response to that first review; i love the red album and with songs like dirty road and die born.... i wonder if you really listened to red at all.

Underrated...yet sooo good

I'v always liked these guys, I personally liked every album. I would recommend buying all three albums instead of a "best of" cause they have a whole lot more to offer than 15 tracks. Go do it, go on.

By the late '90s, a whole new generation had missed out on experiencing the likes of Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, and Nirvana first-hand (with some perhaps not even knowing of their existence at all), so a new crop of similarly styled bands picked up the slack, including Days of the New. Originally hailing from Charlestown, IN, before relocating to Louisville, KY, the group's leader from the get-go was singer/guitarist/songwriter Travis Meeks, who recruited friends Jesse Vest (bass), Matt Taul (drums),...
