Teenage Fanclub - Thirteen mp3 album

Thirteen is the fourth album by Scottish alternative rock band Teenage Fanclub, released in 1993 on Creation Records in the UK and Geffen in the US. It was commonly believed at the time that it was named after the song "Thirteen" by Big Star, a band that has heavily influenced Teenage Fanclub. The self-produced album was poorly received by critics on its release. It peaked at number 14 on the UK Albums Chart.

If Teenage Fanclub once seemed like a ceaseless rush of endorphins, their new sound was a small plane taking off: It seemed to glide on its own, and, before you knew it, was airborne. Don’t Look Back, a highlight from Grand Prix, finds Love admitting there’s little he can say to change someone’s mood; with Blake and McGinley’s harmonies aiding him through the final, triumphant chorus, though, he becomes a hero-stealing cars, lighting up the city. After 2000’s Howdy!, an album of quiet triumphs-the off-kilter rhythm of Dumb Dumb Dumb, Cul De Sac ’s otherworldly drift-Teenage Fanclub started taking longer between records, retreating even further from the spotlight. They now seemed more willing to put the band on hold to gather new energy from collaborations and side projects.

Unjustly savaged by fans and critics alike upon its initial release, with the benefit of hindsight Thirteen has revealed itself an eminently worthy follow-up to the classic Bandwagonesque; though not as consistent or refreshing as its predecessor, the album takes simultaneous steps backward and forward, retreating to a darker, sludgier guitar sound reminiscent of their debut effort A Catholic Education even as.

Released October 4, 1993. That was an album that took us a very, very long time to make. We’d been on tour for Bandwagonesque and gone everywhere. That record was very successful for us.

Teenage Fanclub are a Scottish alternative rock band formed in Bellshill in 1989. As of 2019, the band's lineup consists of Blake, McGinley, Francis MacDonald (drums, vocals), Dave McGowan (bass, vocals) and Euros Childs (keyboards, vocals).

I received the new pressing as a replacement (sent without a sleeve, just in a white paper inner) and it's perfect. Reply Notify me Helpful.
