12 Songs, 45 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Here finds the Scottish indie veterans doing what they do best. Their 10th full-length is a beautifully crafted set of chiming guitars and poignant reflection that borders on the bittersweet—from the psychedelic sadness of “I Was Beautiful When I Was Alive” to the autumnal strums of “The Darkest Part of the Night,” a song whose end we always dread.

Fantastic album

I've been listening to Teenage Fanclub since bandwaonesque. This album seems simplistic at first but after several listens I can't stop putting it on. It's mostly pretty mellow but catchy and beautiful. Must buy for any fan

A huge letdown

Wow. One of my favorite bands finally made an album that leaves me cold. It's a rather quite dull affair. The album is more quiet and atmospheric than any of their other albums and it lacks the snap that made their previous albums any good. Even with the lead track and single 'I'm in Love', the band sounds tired and bored. There's a couple songs on here I like, but even with those songs, they'd be the weaker tracks on the earlier albums. I don't mind the band mellowing out, but this album is a real snoozefest. There's really no energy. No instant catchy melodies. "I Was Beautiful When I Was Alive" is absolutely unforgiveable. What a waste of six years waiting for this!

It feels good

TFC always feels good. Melodies, guitar, the odd imperfection, the edge and the smooth.
