The Man Who is the second studio album by Scottish rock band Travis. The album was released on 24 May 1999 through Independiente. It saw a change in musical direction for the band, moving away from the rockier tone of their debut album Good Feeling. Four singles were released from the album: "Writing to Reach You", "Driftwood", and the top 10 hits "Why Does It Always Rain on Me?" and "Turn".
The Man Who initially received a polarised critical reception and slow sales, but—fueled by the success of "Why Does It Always Rain on Me?" and the band's appearance at the 1999 Glastonbury Festival—it recovered to eventually spend a total of 11 weeks at number one on the UK Albums Chart and went on to give the band international recognition. As of 2018, according to Concord Music, The Man Who has sold over 3.5 million copies worldwide. It was also among ten albums nominated for the best British album of the previous 30 years by the Brit Awards in 2010, ultimately losing to (What's the Story) Morning Glory? by Oasis.
In 2006, The Man Who was named the 70th greatest album of all time by Q. At the 2010 Brit Awards, it was nominated for the Best Album of the Past 30 Years award, losing to Oasis's (What's the Story) Morning Glory?. The album was included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. As of May 2016, The Man Who has sold 2,687,500 copies in the UK.
