Perfect Pop from start to finsih,
This review is from: Grand Prix (Audio CD)
After the critical hoo-ha of Bandwagonesque, the music press seemed to treat Teenage Fanclub as a sort of invisible institution, never frothing with excitement over their subsequent releases. However, their next album, Grand Prix, was an absolute polished gem of a record.
As far as strong starts go, you cannot fault the impeccable programming of the first five tracks of this album. The hits, literally, keep on coming. Having three songwriters, with distinct yet harmonious voices is what has made The Fannies (sorry) a continuous joy to behold.
There are some great singles on here 'Sparky's Dream', 'Mellow Doubt' and a whole host of tracks that would make Travis et al sell their worthless souls for a mere hint of this sparkling talent.
If you love jangly, harmonized power pop in the vein of The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Byrds and Big Star (all the B's) then this album is for you. In fact, everyone in the world should own it. Buy it now!!!
