Editorial Reviews

Thirteen is the fourth album from Scotland's Teenage Fanclub, which was named after the song of the same title, by the iconic noise pop band, Big Star. It is also a clear indicator of where Teeanage Fanclub's heads were at creatively in this ambitous and sprawling follow up to their commercial break through with Bandwagonesque. Rather than reaching for a bigger, cleaner and more commercial sound in order to continue on the fast track to commercial stardom, they decided to record the album themselves. This of course, was a move that was panned by commercial rock critics, who were more concerned with the identification and prompt dismissal of ''fad'' music, rather than accepting that the noise in the basement had finally risen to the surface. There were no more guitar Gods and a bunch of sloppy looking kids from Scotland (or for that matter Memphis, like Big Star or Seattle for irvana) could make music that defined the plurality of contemporary life and do so on one album. That is, some songs make you happy and you jump up and down, while other songs make you cry for some girl or boy you neverhad the guts to talk to in the first place...With all that now said, and with AllMusicGuide and Rolling Stone Magazine throwing up multiple stars for this album as an epic, if not a game changer from the 1990's, why would we now launch into into an elaborate defense for a band with few creative peers and one of the most consistently great catalogs in contemporary music? Because this album, like so many others which endure from one generation to the next, was a lost gem of sorts in a decade of overly defined musical moments. This wasn't a metal album or a grunge album or a punk rock crossover blah blah blah album... But it does contain some of the finest moments in a seminal catalog, with songs like ''Gene Clark,'' being one of the shining stars of the Teenage Fanclub canon.Originally released in 1993 on Creation Records. Pressed on the finest vinyl available. Never before ava
