Amazon.co.uk

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

Back after a 5 year break since their last album, Man Made sees the band remaining on good form. There are some songs that spring out immediately to you - perhaps such as "Slow Fade" - a fast paced tuneful burst of melody which draws you into the album, others take more time. The main thing to make clear is that this is a really good album but you have to listen to it a few times. Having played it a week now the hooks have really got into me. If you buy a lot of CDs and find they grace your CD player for a short time then there is a chance that you may miss the underlying beauty of this album. Do so at your peril. So what of the highlights? Well if you're looking for a starting point check out "Fallen Leaves" or the fantastic "Cell" (with its heart rending subject matter but beautiful tune) , "Its all in my mind" leaves me feeling optimistic every time i hear it.

Teenage Fanclub as a band deserve yours, mine and everyones support. They have put this album out on their own label. Consistently they write great songs, are good humoured - check them out live! No-one creates harmonies like these guys and the love of guitar in their songs is always evident.

If you're new to the band then you may want to start with Grand Prix or Bandwagonesque that have some cracking tunes.

The music world needs Teenage Fanclub. Unpretentious and great songwriters. Buy this album and spread the word (further).

Took a few listens but the quality of the songs doesnt take long to shine through.Like another reviewer in my opinion the songs written by Ray take longer than the others to catch on.
Those of Gerry and Norman however are typically melody laden and infectious. Born under a good sign is an electric guitar gem that makes you wanna get on yer feet and it harps back to the urgency of some of the earlier TFC numbers. The album is for me is probably the best since Grand Prix, listen after listen songs like Its all in my mind, Save, Time Stops, Feel - the list goes on are true classics - The best few quid I've spent in a while I pray to God it wont be another 4 or 5 years before we have to wait for the next release.

teenage fanclub have made one of the most laid back, life afirming and beautiful album of this decade, it brims with musical vitality. The highlights of this album include the beautiful songs flowing, only with you and cells which are emotional yet soothing at the same time...Norman Blake continues to be the best songwriter, however the other two contribute songs which complement his songs greatly. If only teenage fanclub got the expose they trully deserve, perhaps then though it might taint their wonderfully ideallic and peaceful sound, as long as they stick around I shall be delighted. I just wish they could have another album out tomorrow as there is nothing else briming with as much musical ability and sould as this on the market... a must have for tfc fans and all good fans of music out there.....

It would be wrong to criticise Man-Made for failing to replicate the faster paced thrills of Bandwagonesque, Grand Prix etc. Teenage Fanclub have musically matured, as all great groups ultimately have to. The immediacy of the songs may not be as obvious - but the beauty of tracks such as Cells, Save and Don't Hide will more than compensate for a reduction in fast thrills for any intelligent music fan. If you want the latest fashions in music - go elsewhere. Nobody out there today comes close to Teenage Fanclub for simply great songwriting.

"Something simple and unaffected" sang Norman Blake on 1995's Grand Prix album, and this could well describe Man Made. With more of a "live" sound than previous TFC offerings, the album continues their tradition of well played heartfelt songs. Possibly not as immediate as some of their releases but revealing hidden textures with every listen, Man Made was one of the highlights of 2005. Individual songs are difficult to highlight as the standard is so high, but the urgent guitars of "Born Under A Good Sign" and "Slow Fade" recall the bands early 90s recordings, while the predominantly acoustic "Cells" and Raymond McGinley's piano led "Only With You" show welcome diversity. All three songwriters: Blake, McGinley and Gerry Love are on form and the album works well as a whole. Another great record from one of Scotland - and the UK's - finest bands.
