The bulk of this DVD is the music videos, and they are what it does best. The video and sound quality is superb, and it helps that most of Travis's videos are wonderful, too. Fans will be delighted to have all of the band's videos on one disc. This DVD also includes videos of two songs--"Coming Around" and "Walking in the Sun"--I had never heard on their albums, which was a nice surprise. Other than the core music videos, I most enjoyed the live videos of Travis performing a few of their hits.
The short, documentary-esque making-of vinnettes and throwaway intros to each music video, however, were so short and random that they usually didn't make much sense, and I had no desire to watch them a second time. A few were interesting and relevant, but too many were simply short clips of the band members goofing around on their tour bus. The typical "making-of" extra generally consisted of very short, quick cuts of the video's set edited together, providing little to no insight into the directors' and band's work. Maybe they'll do something for you, but they didn't for me.
This DVD would still be a good value if it only contained Travis's 17 music videos, but luckily it goes a little further than that. And while I didn't consider most of the extras to be of much value, the core content is. "Singles" is probably only a diehard Travis fan's DVD, and in my case, that was just what I wanted."

"Hay muchos a quienes no les gusta de ver videos ya que no representan el real espiritu de una banda, sin embargo, para quienes gustan de Travis es interesante tener este DVD. Existen actuanciones en vivo bastante rescatables y en general el DVD da cuenta de la historia de Travis. Lo recomiendo, un grandes exitos con imágenes."
