Life's not fair and it certainly rains a lot in Scotland but no-one could ever accuse spangly Glaswegian power-pop vets Teenage Fanclub of sounding like washed-out malcontents. Now happy to damn the hit parade and release records at their leisure, Man Made--the band's first album in five years--arrives on the group's own label; a defiant (or desperate) gesture of self-preservation equivalent to circling the wagons in defence of the bloodline. Musically, little has changed which means that Messrs Blake, Love and McGinley are still applying the post-grunge anti-ageing cream to the respective legacies of Roger McGuinn and Alex Chilton. There are some great tracks--the atypically Fannies "It's All In My Mind", the folk-rock fight against terminal illness on "Cells", the stack-heeled glam stomp of "Born Under A Good Sign" and a fair bit of borrowing from The Raspberries to The Allmann Brothers (plus violin from the Battlefield Band's John McCusker). Blake imagines himself to be "Like a wave, a pulse across the ocean". Love says "There is more to learn than I aim for, so much under the sun I should claim for". McGinley muses that "I'm alive and I'm alone, I love this life and all I've known". They remain free-spirited, life-affirming, resolutely optimistic and damned tuneful. And yet--like Amerigo Vespucci, whoever it was who invented marmite crisps or the Prussians at Waterloo--Teenage Fanclub may never receive the credit they duly deserve. --Kevin Maidment
Where Shadows is McGinley's album, his songs being the strongest, with Blake's the weakest, Man-Made has Blake right at the top of the game easily outstripping McGinley and Love... Read morePublished 7 months ago by Simon Turner
Simply Fan-tastic. Their best album since Bandwagonesque.
Can't wait till next one due out this year.
Man Made is the first Teenage Fanclub album I've bought since Songs From Northern Britain which along with Grand Prix is the band at their best. Read morePublished on 11 Oct. 2005 by Michelle Coyle
This album starts off well but after a first listening I was disappointed, especially when thinking of the glories of Howdy! Read morePublished on 21 May 2005 by P. J. Martin
