Apr 29, 2021Endless Arcade is a record that showcases both Norman Blake and Raymond McGinley as two of the most gifted (not to mention consistent) songwriters of their generation. Which means Endless Arcade feels like a diary of sorts. Rich in emotional integrity while reminiscing about the past, Teenage Fanclub exude honesty through every pore.
UncutApr 20, 2021It's excellent, with enchanting melodies, emotional depth and a few unexpected evolutions. [May 2021, p.26]
Apr 29, 2021Emotionally honest, across its twelve tracks the group detail feelings of longing, losing your sense of self and awaiting something more in a wholly atmospheric manner. Ripping up their rulebook? Hardly. Giving long-time fans something new to enjoy? You bet.
Apr 30, 2021For all the enjoyably sunny fatalism, though, the absence of vocalist and bassist Gerard Love, who left the band in 2018, is noticeable. Love’s unmistakable falsetto and saccharine hooks added a dynamic to the Fannies that brought a welcome contrast to Blake and McGinley’s songs. Love left the band amicably, citing his desire to tour less, but his absence nonetheless feels at home amid Blake and McGinley’s songs about growing into middle-age.
