12. Travis - Ode to J. Smith
Welcome back to the countdown Travis. The only artist to have an album in last year's list as well. Something a little different from last album, a little less on the pop side and a little more on the rock side. Halfway through J. Smith it sounds like you are being taken away to a land with a gothic choir singing with a Guitar Hero solo going on at the same time. There are some shining moments on the album, but other moments fall flat, especially towards the end of the cd.
