iTunes Editors’ Notes

After a decade and a half of label switching, genre cross-breeding (who knew, back in the ‘90s, that grunge and sunny pop could be bedmates?) and trying to please an ever hungry and decidedly fickle fan base, Scotland’s Teenage Fanclub came back strong with album number eight, Man-Made. Produced by Tortoise’ John McEntire, some wondered if the band would be exploring new hybrid horizons, perhaps infusing their music with a more experimental edge; luckily for all concerned, TF stayed true to their shiny pop hearts, and turned out a neat dozen crisply executed and tightly constructed tunes sure to please the faithful. With three core members standing steadfast at the songwriting helm, echoes of the Byrds and Big Star unabashedly color Teenage Fanclub’s music; it’s as if those heavenly harmonies on tracks like “Time Stops” and “Fallen Leaves” are channeled directly from those who came before. Other stellar tracks like “It’s All In My Mind,” “Slow Fade,” and the gritty “Born Under a Good Sign” sound simply like everything you want Teenage Fanclub to sound like, and that’s a brilliant thing indeed.

Customer Reviews

A fantastic album, true to vintage TFC sounds

"It's All in My Mind" hooks you in and sets the tone. This is just a great, all-around album. Seeing them perform it live a few times made it even better, but this definitely continues to grow on me and will remain a staple in my rotation. Power pop sounds as good as ever.

My Fave CD of 2005

This CD proves how underrated Teenage Fanclub is. Songs that weave their way into your psyche as always. I find my self singing the songs without knowing the words completely... only to listen closer next time. Why this isn't huge I have no idea.

Don't Hide From TFC!

This record is a mature version of their classic sound and having John McEntire at the helm adds something very atmospheric and special. Tight, well-played, deep tunes.

After first gaining acclaim for a dense, melodic sound that anticipated the coming emergence of grunge, Scotland's Teenage Fanclub spent the remainder of their career as torch-bearers for the power pop revival, unparalleled among their generation for both their unwavering adherence to and brilliant reinvention of the classic guitar pop of vintage acts like Big Star and Badfinger. Blessed with the talents of three formidable singers and songwriters (Norman Blake, Gerard Love, and Raymond McGinley,...
