Arguably the definitive Teenage Fanclub album and their most critically and commercially successful album. For many this album surpasses the genius of Bandwagonesque, something not many thought possible. The record firmly establishes the band’s sound and their individual songwriting ability hits rarefied heights – Love’s Sparky’s Dream, Blake’s Mellow Doubt and McGinley’s Verisimilitude, each a colossus in the Fanclub canon. Grand Prix is the sound of a band of considerable individual talent, and yet one that is greater than the sum of its parts, at their peak. The album has appeared in the Greatest British Albums Ever lists in Q magazine and the Observer Music Monthly and the 1,001 Albums To Hear Before You Die book.
“not only are the Fannies back but they are back with the record of their lives”
- Q magazine, 1995
- The Independent, 1995
“you’d struggle to find a more perfect pop album than this. Grand Prix still sounds as fresh as it did on first listen; perhaps even better.”
- BBC, 2008
“It's got incredible warmth and makes me feel fantastic. I think it'll eventually be seen as the Sweetheart Of The Rodeo of its day.”
- Bernard Butler, Suede
