Teenage Fanclub: A Short Cut to Their Greatest Hits

Teenage Fanclub are a Scottish alternative rock band that formed in 1989 and have released ten studio albums, as well as several compilations and EPs. They are known for their catchy melodies, harmonies, and guitar-driven sound, influenced by classic rock bands like The Beatles, Big Star, and The Byrds. They have been praised by critics and fans alike for their consistent quality and longevity, despite never achieving mainstream success or following musical trends.

One of their most popular releases is Four Thousand Seven Hundred and Sixty-Six Seconds A Short Cut to Teenage Fanclub, a greatest hits album that came out in 2003. The title refers to the album's total length, just 34 seconds short of the maximum running time possible on a single CD. The album features 21 tracks, spanning their career from 1990 to 2002, including 14 singles, four album tracks, and three new songs written for the album. It also contains remixes and edits of some of their songs to fit on the CD.


The album showcases the band's three main songwriters: Norman Blake, Gerard Love, and Raymond McGinley, who each sing lead vocals on their own compositions. The album covers a wide range of styles and moods, from the power-pop anthems of "The Concept" and "Sparky's Dream", to the acoustic ballads of "Mellow Doubt" and "Your Love Is the Place Where I Come From", to the experimental rock of "Hang On" and "Radio". The album also features some of their most beloved lyrics, which are often witty, romantic, and nostalgic.

The album received critical acclaim from various sources, such as AllMusic , Pitchfork , and Stylus Magazine , who praised the band's songwriting skills, musical diversity, and charm. The album also reached #47 in the UK album charts , making it their highest-charting album since 1997's Songs from Northern Britain. The album is considered by many fans and critics as a perfect introduction to Teenage Fanclub's music, as well as a testament to their enduring appeal.
