Over a decade ago, amidst the grunge period in alternative music's hey day, Teenage Fanclub was quietly releasing albums on the same SubPop imprint that birthed hundreds of alt/grunge/punk bands that we've all come to know and love. I remember hearing a song of theirs on a compilation, thinking how out of place it sounded among other more disjunct and chaotic members of the imprint, and how a band like this would never reach the pinnacle of success seen by bands with less skill and purity that they possess...because Teenage Fanclub makes the music that you don't fall in love with at first sight, you ease into it until it becomes a comfort....like an old recliner in the living room that's been worn down to your shape...
I've always said that Teenage Fanclub is what the Beach Boys would be if they grew up today and didn't surf. And while this can't really be the perfect album (being a best of...retrospective kind of effort), it's a worthy addition to the collection of anyone trying to get caught up, or needing a crash course in one of the most underrated bands in the world.
Teenage Fanclub played before the Brit-pop invasion, and they're playing just as well after we saw it come and go. Their mix of relaxed lyrics and jangly guitars don't really fit into a genre other than pop, but it doesn't have to. They create the kind of sad, sweet music that manages to have some prestige to it, rather than just sound cheesy or hollow.
"Your Love Is the Place Where I Come From" is a short acoustic number that tugs at all the right strings, while "Ain't That Enough" is the closest proof I can find to the Beach Boys comparison stated above.

This is a well thought out collection of the band's music. A few songs are taken from each record, and so the less catchy songs from Songs of Northern Britain are placed alongside the very melodious earlier songs. The listener is thus aware of the increased maturity of the band with time. Songs like Your Love is the Place I Come From can be ignored on a single listening, but with a few listens, become favourites from the album. Rather in the same manner that Dylan's One Too Many Mornings can be ignored at first.

An essential piece of music for anyone who loves melodies and one of the best cds I've heard in a long time.

I am not going to bother you lot with too many superlatives about this Scottish band. Needless to say there are ommisions to this 'Best Of' compilation such as Mount Everest and If I Never See You Again, and yet it is a quality retrospective of their work. They remind me of The Beach Boys, not only because of the close harmonies, but also the fact that a lot of the songs are very understated in tone. But also Nirvana, as they could prove just as comfortable with an accoustic guitar as an electric guitar. The MAIN reason why I purchased this album though is because of the 3 new tracks available on it. Of the three new songs I would have to rate 'Did I Say' as not only the best track on the album, but quite possibly one of the most beautiful and uplifting tunes of the last ten years by anyone. Forget Travis, Coldplay and all the other British music chancers of recent years, Teenage Fanclub are the real deal!

There's a Teenage Fanclub song called 'Norman 3' (alas, not on this collection) that follows its first verse with 'Yeah, I'm in love with you, I'm in love with you, and I know that it's you'. After this simple chorus you expect a second verse but you don't get one. Instead the chorus is repeated, without variation, another TEN times - way beyond any conventions of songcraft. At first you feel surprise, then you start to believe that the singer is really in love, then a kind of euphoria takes over as you start to share the same feeling. Another song of theirs (on this collection) starts with a selfless expression of love that must be unique in rock music: 'I don't want control of you. Doesn't matter to me. The very heart and soul of you are places I wanna see'.
Teenage Fanclub sing songs of love. Love for their partners, love for nature (the Scottish Highlands in particular) and love for the planet. Their songs are generous and selfless. They have no trace of archness, hipness or postmodern irony about them. Their songs have gorgeous melodies, aching harmonies and neat arrangements played on jangly guitars. Although they have learnt a great deal from the Beatles and the Byrds, they are definitely their own men. In my humble opinion they are the finest songwriters working today. This CD is an excellent collection of some of their best songs. You should buy it.

In my ever-so-humble opinion, Teenage Fanclub are one of the most criminally under-rated and under-known bands in existence. True, they've shunned the spotlight. But word-of-mouth alone should have made them superstars. That is part of the reason why I'm writing this review.
To limit myself to just one descriptive sentence to describe this music: Teenage Fanclub create thoughtful, beautiful, moving rock music. And I am employing those adjectives to the fullest extent possible.
This is a wonderful collection of the highlights from Teenage Fanclub's career to date. The tracks were chosen by the band, and make a great introduction if you are a new fan, or are one of those people who only know them from their brief time in the American spotlight in 1992. If you are one of these people, I strongly urge you to check this out.
Dedicated fans probably have all the studio albums (unfortunately there's only 6 to date), but will agree that they did a nice job of picking the best tracks from those albums. Other reasons for dedicated fans to purchase this are the 3 excellent new tracks, great liner notes (although I bought the UK version, which may be different in that respect) and the remixing of some of the older tracks which give them a fresher sound.
If you're looking for a knowledgable fan's opinion on whether this makes a good purchase, then the answer is, obviously, a resounding YES.
