  • Summary: This is the second album for the Welsh rock band.

  2. Negative: 0 out of 15
  1. Making good on the only slightly veiled threats of Curses, the new Travels With Myself And Another finds Falkous’ barbed stories--of fruitless sex, godless existence, and other pointless-yet-unavoidable bullshit--stretched wire-taut, with nary a moment of wasted energy.
  2. Travels... is a 33 minute monster without a slither of excess fat, and the best thing Andy Falkous has ever put his name to.
  3. By no means a feel-good record, Travels With Myself and Another is rich with enough black humor, sharp perspectives and tight muscular music to make it one of the best rock albums of the year.
  4. Yet despite the occasionally black subject matter this is a fine and powerful album for lovers of red meat rock, served rare.
  5. Travels with Myself and Another distinguishes Future of the Left from Mclusky without completely severing ties, and proves they're a band that can keep post-hardcore exciting with righteous anger and merciless wit.
  6. 80
    These Brits--featuring two members of Mclusky, a great band that died in 2005--spit fiery, trebly guitar­rock venom with such lusty glee that following them to hell actually sounds inviting.
  7. Trying to find a sense of humour amidst the walloping woe is exhausting. [Aug 2009, p.107]
