Thirteen is the fourth album by Scottish alternative rock band Teenage Fanclub, released in 1993 on Creation Records in the UK and Geffen in the US. It was commonly believed at the time that it was named after the song "Thirteen" by Big Star, a band that has heavily influenced Teenage Fanclub. The self-produced album was poorly received by critics on its release. It peaked at number 14 on the UK Albums Chart.
Bandwagonesque is the sound of discovery-of finding your voice and naming your mission. 1993’s Thirteen, its gnarlier, sloppier follow-up, had the disadvantage of coming next. To this day, its reputation is far worse than the actual music. After the whirlwind of Bandwagonesque, critics hated this record, calling it derivative (the title was taken from a Big Star song; the closing track was named after Gene Clark) and brainless ( Norman 3 finds Blake repeating the actual sentence I’m in love with you more than 20 times). After 2000’s Howdy!, an album of quiet triumphs-the off-kilter rhythm of Dumb Dumb Dumb, Cul De Sac ’s otherworldly drift-Teenage Fanclub started taking longer between records, retreating even further from the spotlight. They now seemed more willing to put the band on hold to gather new energy from collaborations and side projects.
Bandwagonesque' is the third album by Scottish alternative rock band Teenage Fanclub, released in November 1991 on Creation Records. The album gave the band substantial US success when the single 'Star Sign' reached number four on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart, becoming their biggest hit in that country, with "What You Do to Me" and "The Concept" also becoming top 20 hits on that chart.
Crotchety critics complained that this Glaswegian quartet sounded too close to cult Memphis band Big Star for their own or anyone else's good, but Bandwagonesque proved that unapologetic homage can sometimes work. The Fanclub's mesh of yearning, ethereal melody and cranked, feed-backing guitars came together superbly on "The Concept," "Metal Baby," and the thrashing "Star of mellifluousness that yoked Alex Chilton to Crazy Horse and the Ramones.

On March 19, 1985, the first issue of SPIN hit newsstands. To celebrate our 30th anniversary, we’re revisiting a handful of records that the staff has previously awarded Album of the Year, a distinction the magazine started giving out in 1990. The year 1991 was a pivotal one in the course of alternative-rock music, with standard-bearing, game-changing albums released by U2, My Bloody Valentine, Pearl Jam, and of course, Nirvana, whose breakthrough album, Nevermind, would go on to define the genre for the rest of the decade to come
As such, the band successfully fuses hard rock and pop so that fans of either genre can appreciate easy-going yet powerful ballads such as the album's opening track. The Concept" sets the mood for the whole album with its easy melodic flow driven by Norman Blake's soft voice.
