"I don't have my finger on the pulse of my generation / I just got my hand on my heart," sings Justin Currie on "Not Where It's At," the opening song from Del Amitri's fourth album. The line and the song adequately sum up this Scottish band's plaintive sound; guitars with a gentle twang and a singer who is not afraid to show off his emotional vulnerability. Derisive lyrics occasionally spoil the melancholy tones of songs like "Mother Nature's Writing" and "High Times." --Aidin Vaziri

Severely Overlooked Masterpiece -- I'm Not Kidding

"Del Amitri's fifth studio album really deserves another listen. And then several others. 'Some Other Sucker's Parade' is not as immediately catchy as 'Twisted' or the unsurpassed 'Change Everything' but patience (this is one of those albums that gets better with repeated listenings) will reveal an album full of poetic lyrics (Justin Currie is one the greatest songwriters of the last 20 years--his songs truly read like poetry) and great instrumentation. The intertwining of guitar and piano is done better on this album than any I have heard and there's not a bad song in the batch. While not particularly uplifting, the songs will make you think and listen in wonder at the poetry of it all--and make you wish these guys would put albums out much more frequently. Del Amitri certainly aren't the most prolific of bands, but the albums they do put out are amongst the most well-written and performed available. If you dig any of there other albums, you will love this one--and track down as many b-sides as you can find; this is one band whose b-sides (and there are many more in addition to those collected on the 'Lousy in Love' cd) are as good as their a-sides (and that is very very good). Very Highly Recommended."
Can an album actually FEEL good?

"Some Other Sucker's Parade is a resounding YES after the somewhat disappointing (but always interesting) "Twisted". This album calls forth all the great things that Del offered in the 1st two brilliant albums, and then expounds upon them: Currie's bloody great voice. Uncanny song writing. A smoothness that's usually only found in drinks with paper umbrellas in them. Brilliant stuff. Highlights: Oh, hell ... the whole 1st side."
