Belle and Sebastian met in an all-night café in Glasgow, and their debut album, Tigermilk was written and recorded over the next few weeks. It's remarkable, therefore, that Tigermilk is Belle and Sebastian's finest by some length; a gorgeous album poised somewhere in between the shambling Scottish charm of The Pastels and the delicate pathos of Nick Drake. The heart of Tigermilk is in frontman Stuart Murdoch's choral whisper; impossibly fragile elegies are spurred to greatness by the band's energetic Northern Soul rhythms and sprightly folk. Tigermilk, though, is replete with a muscular tension on tracks like "Expectations" and "I Don't Love Anyone" that downplays Belle and Sebastian's sometimes annoying tendency to drift into syrupy twee-ness. --Louis Pattison
While it would be crass to resort to journalistic cliche, Belle & Sebastian are too many that musical equivalent of what you put on your toast in the morning. And it all started with this, their debut. Originallty released in a limited format of 1000 vinyl albums, the songs of Stuart Murdoch here found full flight.
Many critics were won over by the band's lo-fi, shambling homeliness, while others could only see tweeness rearing its ugly head. The truth lies in between. The songs, couched in deceptively simple arrangements (and captured beautifully by ex-Associate, Alan Rankine) are actually deft, articulate tales of modern love.
Up until this point the band (which still contained Isobel Campbell) were fitting their music in between their day jobs. Such was the critical (and commercial) response to Tigermilk that they turned professional. Whether you love or hate them, this is where it all started. --Dennis O'Dell

my original of this had an unfortunate accident so I had to replace it but this copy seems to be a slight improvement (Ie a better mastering)

Extraordinary. Dream debut. Just thought I'd keep the glowing reviews up to date in case any newbies are passing by.

Tigermilk was released in 1996 in about the most low-key way possible - 1000 copies on the record label of a local college attended by the group's drummer Richard Colburn.Read more
