    CONGRATULATION 4UR NOMINATION FOR THE MAN WHO!!
    I MET UR MUSIC WITH THAT ALBUM. I WORKED ON A MUSIC STORE BACK IN 2000 AND THE CD COVER CAUGHT MY EYES. AND WHEN I STARTED TO LISTEN TO IT I WAS LIKE..”THANK GOD SOMEBODY IS DOING REAL MUSIC”. YOU (FRAN) ARE ONE OF THE BEST SONGWRITERS OF THE PAST 40 YEARS, UR LYRICS ARE SO TRUE AND YOU CAN CONNECT TO ANYONE. AGAIN CONGRATULATIONS

    P.S. I LOVE “SHEยดS SO STRANGE” WHEN I PLAY THE LAST CHORDS OF THE SONG… MAN!! I CANยดT STOP! I COULD KEEP IT PLAYING ALL DAY LONG!! . LOL.

    Um, where is Blur’s Parklife in that list? I’m not saying it’s the best album of the past 30 years, but it’s a lot better than Keane, Duffy, or Dido.

  7. Tom says:

    Oh yeah :))

  14. Debbie (deebee) says:

    Go Mark Knopfler……oh and Mr Healy too, of course!

  15. F N Gamboa says:

    I liked alot of other wreck chords over brothers in arms and a few others listed but like I think Dekooning said , ” critics are birdwatchers to birds “….but really a 10-12 min version of mid life krysis would be some kina awesome….I had brought whats the story to the studio the other day but everyone wanted to hear a catholic education instead ….best of luck though

  16. Garry says:

    This could stir up more interest in Travis.
    Funny though : I used to get a lift to work from a guy who was in his 60s,and he played brothers in arms (in his car) at 7am every day for 5 about years.
    He said it was the best thing he had ever heard.
    Must admit, it was a great way to start the day. And i never got fed up with it.
    So yeah, i love that album. Its a classic.
    Voted for Travis though.

  17. Melanie says:

    This is amazing! Congratulations! You totally deserve to win!
    I wish people outside the UK and the US were able to vote, too. :o(

  21. Krocas says:

    Congratulations, Fran!!!
    I visited the website to vote and found out that only people in UK and US are allowed to vote. If it is just for UK or open to any other country in the world, I’d understand, but this is… I just don’t get it. ๐Ÿ™

  22. Sharon says:

    Congratulations! So are you 4 going to show up at the ceremony then?

  23. Kathy says:

    Great news – congratulations, you definitely deserve to win it. x

  24. johnny says:

    The Man Who is the best record on that list.
    Urban Hymns would be second.

  25. Monk says:

    OMG!!!
    The man who is awesome!!!
    First time I heard that album was when I in senior hign.

    That’s really important to me.

    Everytime my friends ask me to recommend the best album in my life(so far),
    The man who always can catch their EARS!!!

    Gogo Fran!!!!

  26. Leti says:

    I can’t vote ‘cos I’m outside the UK and US…

    No no, I don’t feel left out at all :'(

  27. hennypenny says:

    Congrats to you and the band Fran! ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. Melissam317 says:

  29. Nana says:

    Can’t vote…..Only UK and US……Why? T-T
    Congratulations!! Travis is the best in my mind!!

  30. Wo0o0o0 says:

    I’m sure that ‘The man who’ will be the best!!!

    way to go~!

  31. Ursina says:

    brilliant stuff Congratulations! but then TMW IS THE BEST album …. ever ! just cast my vote there ๐Ÿ™‚ Fingers crossed now

  32. pcg says:

    Congrats on the nomination!

  33. Hiromi says:

    I live in the US but just went to the website and was able to vote.
    It asked where I live and answer option even had “the US.” At the end of the
    process, it even showed “thank you for your vote. it has been saved and counted!” I hope my vote is counted!

  34. Niko says:

    I voted for you and the guys.
    My second option would without a doubt have been Dire Straits too.
    But I think Oasis might just have the most loyal “oasis-blasphemists”-striking fans.

  35. Juli says:

    There’s a Juli in Leicester that voted for Travis. I have nothing to do with it: she’s in the UK and I’m in Argentina. We just share the same name and email account. ๐Ÿ˜›

  36. yle says:

    Congrats for the nomination!! That’s really great.

    I totally voted (for you of course) : )

  37. o_unico says:

    “Voted: Thank you for your vote, it has been saved and counted!”
    I live in Brazil, but I was Born In Manchester City! Just in case.

  38. Sue says:

    Voted! ( although this was not my fav Travis but I love it as much as the rest ) ๐Ÿ™‚

  39. Rachele says:

    Congratulations! I have to admit that right now, I am feeling a little star-struck, considering the background picture on my cell phone shows little me sandwiched in between half of the band [you and Andy] that received this prestigious nomination. In most cases, I would be divided among a few on that list; though Travis is my favorite, I am also a huge Dire Straits and Richard Ashcroft/Verve fan. The tie, however, is easily broken. My vote goes to the guys that took the time to meet and hug me in Cleveland. Phenomenal album to be sure, but in addition, the live experience can’t be beat. That being said, when you release your album, you should come back to the Grog Shop.

  40. Andrea says:

    Try to imagine a mountain road full of switchbacks that take you to a mountain (Monte Rosa) in the Italian Alps. Cold, snow and the desire to spend a weekend with yourself and a few good friends to 3500 meters altitude. This was the moment when I truly discovered this album, the best album ever made by a band in my opinion. This is “the man who” for me. I still remember the wind and my walk with the Walkman listening LUV !!!

    Thanks Fran, for making this record.

    Even now I’m trying desperately the vinyl version. Sooner or later it will be MINE !!!

  41. Karla Gladstone says:

    Congratulations!!!!!! I’m so happy you were nominated for this. Very cool!

  42. Can says:

    Congradlations! Happy for you Fran. Travis deserves the best! =)

    L.O.V.E. from Turkey

  43. Joy says:

    Congratulations !
    The winner should be yours!!!!
    The Man Who is the best album of the world….you deserve it !!!!
