Teenage Fanclub: "Discolite" (1995)

Aus Grand Prix, meinem Teenage-Fanclub-Lieblingsalbum, auf dem sich ein formidabler Popsong an den anderen reiht. "This is pop-rock refined to its vital essence, and it roars along. The songs are simple, memorable and lyrically oddball (try 'I hate verisimilitude'); the playing, particularly the clanging guitars, is emphatic and unfussy and the harmonies are absolutely glorious. Comparisons with The Beatles have become tiresome, but here, now, Teenage Fanclub really are that good." (Robert Sandall, Sunday Times, 18 June 1995)
