Indie classic. Objectively not the best record around but I love it anyway. It's simple, it's catchy, everything at its right place.
Fav track: Come Back Home
Least fav track: Do You Want It All?

Very upbeat, bouncy tunes. Does get old quick though.

Favorite songs; Undercover Martyn, Cigarettes In The Theatre

Least favorite; Come Back Home (still good)

How old does an album have to be to be a classic?

Tourist History radiates "classic" energy to me. TDCC''s approach to indie rock and pop has had me spinning for years now. From the irresistible guitar riffs, to Kevin Baird's bouncy baselines, to the sweet synths, these songs have such a timeless feeling. This band almost single-handedly got me into indie rock and I've never found a band in the genre I liked more (even if they've strayed away from this album's rock sound).

"Tourist History" may not be the best debut album, but it feels just right for this band. These are bouncy, quick, fun and irresistibly catchy indie jams with some amazing instrumentation and truckloads of energy! It may be simple, but that's what makes this great.

Fav Tracks: Something Good Can Work, Come Back Home, Undercover Martyn, What You Know, This Is The Life, I Can Talk, Cigarettes In The Theatre

TDCC's debut is simple and catchy without coming across as shallow. The clean and melodic production soars high in the clouds at just the right speed, perfect for dancing along.
