    Everything at Once is their liveliest and most lighthearted effort to date, a celebration of both their legacy and their maturity.

    If you sometimes need to reach for songs that make you smile, that deliver adrenaline or emotional balm, then you could do an awful lot worse than Everything At Once.

    Although the title track holds a sliver of adventure with its fizzing electronic flourishes, the absence of evolution elsewhere reveals a band hanging too tightly on to the past. [Jun 2016, p.81]

    It might all sound as comfortable as an old cardigan feels but at this point, that seems fair enough. [Jul 2016, p.115]

    It’s doubtful Everything At Once will arrest gentle Travis’s steady slide. But they are certainly not done yet; their rabbit is out of the bag and it’s worth catching.

    In many ways, this Travis record is no better or worse than previous Travis records.

    Large chunks of Everything At Once sound dishearteningly workmanlike. [May 2016, p.92]

However, whileOf course, after some really good singles, which stayed my favourites songs from album, I was waiting for something better. However, while "Paralysed" and "All of the Places" are huge disappointments, some songs are definetely on par with previous Travis albums. Radio Song is probably one of their best singles so far which has potential to be aired on a radio (no pun intended). Was waiting for something better, but still a great job, Travis. Expand

True, my wish was granted, as nothing on here stoops as low as to reach the levels of "Reminder" or "New Shoes", yet nothing really blows me away either. My favourite track on here, "Animals", had so much potential to be truly fantastic, and whilst it still certainly hits the mark, it just strikes me as resembling a fairly weak Manic Street Preachers song. "Radio Song" and the title track are also decent tracks to take from this record, the latter sporting a big chorus that hits you flat in the face (sung by Dougie Payne), and I also appreciate the vaguely 'grandiose' intent the band had with "Paralysed". But once you've sat through the comprehensive bore-fest that is "All of the Places" and realised that nothing substantial is to come afterwards, you can't help recalling once again that underwhelming feeling. Overall, it's a decent record, nothing amazing yet nothing truly awful, but I'm sure the band are still capable of producing something fantastic, as long as they just pull their fingers out next time.
