CD Reviews

Blissful, sun-kissed summer soundtrack....
GZA | London | 05/05/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Teenage Fanclub are so good I can't believe they've failed to break out of indieworld and into the bigtime - still, that's the (lack of) taste of the record-buying public for you. Grand Prix is their best album so far, just shading Bandwagonesque for sheer loveliness. As ever, the Gerry Love songs are the best. The man is a songwriting genius, and if you thought Noel Gallagher was good, just listen to Gerry's efforts on this one - Sparky's Dream, Don't Look Back, Discolite and the gorgeous Going Places - the mono-browed one would kill to write songs like these. Grand Prix mines that seam of melodious guitar pop, sixties style, better than any other 90s album I can think of. Think Byrds, Beach Boys, Big Star, even REM, for that lovely sunny vibe - all jangly guitars and three part harmonies. The album is a bit patchy because of the democratic split in songwriting duties - in all honesty Raymond McGinlay should stick to just playing guitar, but Norman's efforts are pretty good, Tears undoubtedly the best of them. Buy Grand Prix NOW! - it makes the sun shine, even in winter."

"This is the best tfc album ive heard. Believe me. Its excellent. Theres no bad song in it. The best song in this album is "ill make it clear". One the best song ever. Btw, tfc never made bad album. All of their album is excellent. Every album have their own greatness. But this is just the best. i never tired of it. Buy this album. CHeers."
Nealy perfect

"Please ignore the last review, even though it is mostly favorable. To call the cover art and title "unfortunate", and especially to say that Ray McGinley's songwriting "falls short" in any way, is pretty ridiculous.

This is one of the few cds I own that doesn't make me reach for the "skip" button from time to time. In fact, I'd say it's probably in my top five favorite albums of all time, period - and I own at least a little of everything from Buddy Holly and Patsy Cline to The Strokes and The White Stripes. It's THAT good. I'm not exaggerating. That fact that it wasn't a huge success is criminal.

The songs are as close to perfect as three-and-a-half minute power-pop songs can be. The only thing that keeps it from being perfect is the inclusion of "Hardcore/Ballad", which I can do without. But that's just me - and at least it's the last song, making it easy to skip.

Really. You should buy this album. Now. I mean it."
