iTunes Editors’ Notes

Born in a soup of melodic grunge at the beginning of the '90s, and notably championed by Kurt Cobain and Creation stablemates Oasis, Scotland's Teenage Fanclub produced this bedrock album in 1995. The three core members - Norman Blake, Gerard Love, and Raymond McGinley - split the songwriting duties equally, backed by the muscular drumming of Paul Quinn. The band siphons their own fabulous vision of timeless guitar pop through layers of gentle distortion, gorgeously gruff harmonies, and straight-up brilliant composition. Highlights include Blake's "I'll Make It Clear" which contains the kind of chord changes that'll make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck. Grand indeed.

Customer Reviews

Good pop!

I bought grand prix after reading a few respectable reviews about these charming young pop writers and well... it was extremely catchy but that was it. Second listen i felt the same way. I slid this record on the shelf only to try it out again months later. It had more charisma this time around and it gets better with every listen. If you want good pop music then give it a shot.

Best album This year or any other year. Awesome like eating fried chicken while riding a bicycle in traffic on the highway, until someone hits you and you dump your chicken along with your innerds on the highway. Cars drive with their tires and spread your chicken/poop for miles.

best album of the 90s

which still brings me a smile 20 years later, perfect.
