    TFC keep the quality high, songwriting and execution-wise on they're latest album. 'When I Still Have Thee' and 'Baby Lee' are two of their best songs, and that's saying a lot. Very strong melodically, and with an excellent flow, this is the kind of album that should be getting more exposure.

  1. Whereas most of their albums have had at least one or two weak tracks, every tune on Shadows is tight and fully developed. [Spring 2010, p.65]

    Deep-piling beautiful microorchestration and songs which in the fashion of mature-era Fanclub slowly yet unfailingly insinuate their charms. [June 2010, p. 95]
  3. While the only revolutions here might be the creaky cogs of the Fannies' 20-year career turning nicely, there's little denying they're still worthy of the reverence they effortlessly garner.
