Pure Pop Perfection.,
This review is from: Howdy! (Audio CD)
Teenage Fanclub, surely the most underappreciated band of recent times, carried on where their previous album "Songs From Northern Britain" had left off with another collection of harmonic masterpieces. This record is a real grower and, while I wouldn't recommend it as your first Fanclub purchase (try the new Best Of or Grand Prix) there are enough quality moments to ensure a five-star rating. Norman Blake, Gerry Love and Ray McGinley are great singers and songwriters and have produced the goods yet again. From the chiming "I Need Direction" with its "ba ba ba" backing vocals to the call and response vocals of "My Uptight Life, this album is a must for anyone who enjoys jangling guitars, harmonies and summery tunes.
