Customer Reviews

Lovely....

My favourite album in some time - fantastic melodies from the teenage fanclub man!! Anyone who likes the fannies, will truly enjoy this album - especially with the Summer just around the corner......

...Not What Was Expected!

Firstly I must disagree with the previous user. I quite like this album, but for me it in no way sounds like any of Teenage Fanclub's material. Also, I would strongly disagree with the allusion of this being a 'Summer album' - that it is not, in my eyes. Perhaps we just have different ideas of summer albums!

I heard a few weeks prior to release that this record was coming out, I was fairly excited by the news. I couldn't wait to hear what Gerard Love had put together outside TFC - my favourite compositions of the Fanclub tend to be penned by the group's bassist. The fact he had got Brendan O'Hare - the original drummer - on board too was exciting, his drumming was excellent on the early TFC releases.

However, when I listened to it I swiftly realised this album did not have a 'Bandwagonesque'-esque sound - in fact it does not sound like any of the Teenage Fanclub releases. Therefore I don't know if liking TFC would mean you love this album. For me, this album is more of an easy listen, it is more downbeat and quieter. Despite it being a good album, I was disappointed that there were no classic Gerard Love-penned tunes on this album: no Sparky's Dream, no Gene Clark.

To put it in short, I feel it was a decent album - maybe even good. I don't think it was brilliant, and I'll need to find another album for this summer, unfortunately!
