Product Description & Reviews
Scotland's Teenage Fanclub offers their sixth full-length. Twelve tracks of pop guitar genius inspired by Big Star and Badfinger. A solid album that you only need to hear once to get into. Followers of Teenage Fanclub will find no surprises on Howdy, as the band members continue to cultivate material from territory seeded by classic popsters such as the Byrds, Big Star, and XTC. Evoking the past while sounding perpetually contemporary is the talent upon which this group's longevity is based, and all 12 songs on this album feature lovelorn characters and vagabond hearts paraded before backdrops of the big, bouncy pop sounds that characterized 1970s chart-toppers. In the early 1990s (circa Thirteen), Teenage Fanclub used this sound to rail against alternative music scenesterism and its tendency to make, and glorify, one-hit wonders. But three albums later, the band members' anger has blunted and their focus has turned inward, leaving them prone to sharp introspection. With sweetly intelligent lyrics, a consistently epic sound on every well-crafted song, and Beach Boys-esque vocal harmonies that showcase the three singer-songwriters' enormous talents, Howdy is as good an album to own as almost any other by this enduring band. --Sarah A. Sternau

Raw, emotional and sonically adventurous, Hurricane #1 is a new band founded by former Ride co-leader Andy Bell.

This album was co-produced by Bell and Stephen Harris (Kula Shaker's K); 1st single/video: ''Step Into My World.'' [Note: This product is an

Blur (1997), the 5th studio album from British pop/rock band Blur, broke wildly with the sounds of their previous album, The Great Escape, whose wild success had catapulted the band to international fame. Feeling that the Britpop mantel painted on them was limiting their creative capacity, Blur went lo-fi and added more alternative rock to their sound, stunning critics and fans alike. What appeared was a mixture of short punk, haunting instrumentals, and eccentric pop which displays the bands

Sometimes it seems as if Terry Reid is more famous for having turned down the gig as Led Zeppelin's lead singer than he is for his own recordings. And that's a shame, because this guy was one of the all-time great blue-eyed soul men, compared by many to such legends as Sam Cooke and Ben E. King. The two albums that appear here, Terry Reid and Bang, Bang You're Terry Reid, are widely considered his peak recordings; this deluxe reissue includes 12 bonus tracks, 37 total! Ripe for rediscovery..

The name of Gillian Gilbert and Stephen Morris' solo project, The Other Two, is a joke about their status as the least acknowledged members of New Order. But the duo's Reprise/Qwest debut, The Other Two and You, is evidence that without Peter Hook and Bernard Sumner, the best they can produce is flaccid pop with tired techno beats. For extracurricular activity, the pair should stick to scoring Fox TV's America's Most Wanted. --Jim DeRogatis.
