For better or worse, the only thing that truly sticks out on Teenage Fanclub's sixth studio record is the title. It's the worst since Ass. However, "howdy" is a fitting way to sum up these 12 simple, humble pop songs, most of which are light-hearted and cheery. It would be easy -- and understandable to a certain degree -- if die-hard Fanclub fans felt letdown with the band flying in a stylistic holding pattern, though the influences on this one tend to point toward the hushed side of the Hollies more than the previous indebtedness to the Byrds and Big Star.
|I love removable clouds. Let the sunshine in!|
It's all here what we like if we play a Teenage Fanclub record.
And that is why i love these guys. And this sixth album from 2000.
