4.0 out of 5 stars 'THE MEN WHO' could have been., 5 Nov. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Howdy [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Another time, another day teenage fanclub could have the travis of their day, specialising in yearning melodies performed by nice Glaswgians. Alternatively, the fact that 1995's Grand Prix became one of the decade's greatest forgotten albums rather than one of it's most ubiquitous may be seen as a blessing. Their sixth album's sunny joie de vivre is the work of a band with no pressure and nothing to lose.
As the title suggests, there's a countryish tinge to proceedings, as well as those familiar touchstones, The Byrds and the Beach Boys. From the "ba-ba" harmonies of 'I Need Direction' to the tender closer 'If I Never See You Again', it's pretty much an unadultered joy. For all their lyrical melancholy, 'Near You' and 'Dumb Dumb Dumb' glow with brow-soothing good vibes. Teenage Fanclub's recent promises of experimentation may extend no further than the starter-kit sound effects and bongos on the gorgeous summer haze of 'Cul De Sac', but few bands epitomise so well the virtues of not fixing that which isn't broken.
