You all know the script by now, as there's been plenty of raving about this album. You've heard of the jangly guitars, sunshine, awesome pop etc. So I think I'll rave some more......
Teenage Fanclub have always been a decent, workmanlike band. But on this showing, the Cosmics are Zinedene Zidane to the Fannies Tommy Boyd!! And anyway, it's not a fair comparison.
Honestly, the songwriting and delivery here are world class. This is a better album than Pet Sounds in my opinion.
If you love music, and music enriches your life, you've simply GOT to get this.
I'll not bother to single out songs, but there are so many instant classics - oh alright then 'baby you're so free' is currently my own fave, and it includes the line "he was a lying hippie fiend - vegetarians you can't trust them" you just gotta hear it. Tho this is one of those albums where you're fave song will change from month to month, as it is so strong and full of great songs.
How sad that the charts are currently filled with horrendous drivel, mimed by innane cabaret acts, and the world at large is not exposed more to glorious, life affirming music such as this.
