  • Teenage Fanclub emerged from a fraternal milieu centred on the Scottish town of Bellshill. A common love of pop tradition bound the quartet together and elements of their mentors abound on this collection. Neil Young and Big Star are obvious reference points, but the Fannies are not merely Byrds copyists. Dizzy melodies, long-hair guitar and unpretentiousness abound, the set's attraction ultimately residing in its cumulative, carefree charm. An impishness enhances the entire proceedings; only the churlish can resist its obvious attractions. Since this release they have been sorely taken for granted and have become an institution rather than stars. Everybody loves them but not enough to buy them.

Professional Reviews
Spin (12/91) - Highly Recommended - "..this music makes your spine shiver ...God's gift to college radio...Equal parts Neil Young, Big Star, Rolling Stones, Lindsey Buckingham, and Eddie Money..." - Ranked #1 in Spin's list of the 20 Albums Of The Year (1991) - "...this record would be hard to equal in any year. Rock music doesn't get much better than this."

Q (12/91) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...a penchant for genteel melodies and feedback-stafed electric guitars..." - One of Q Magazine's 50 best albums of 1991.

Alternative Press (7/95, p.100) - Ranked #81 in AP's list of the 'Top 99 Of '85-'95' - "...The whole record [is] a tiny little chip of greatness....suggesting[ing] a brilliant future..."

Melody Maker (12/91) - Ranked #11 in Melody Maker's list of the top 30 albums of 1991 - "...Grinding raunch plus soppy melodies equals the best album Big Star never made. Sheer ragged glory oozing honey at the core..."
