Whoa, what happened?

"I have been enamored with Del Amitri since their 1990 release "Waking Hours". Justin Currie is a terrific songwriter and lyricist, putting together the type of songs that transport you from your chair/sofa and deposit you in a smokey pub somewhere outside of Glasgow where the rain never stops, the bar never closes, and people wander the streets forever in a haze of broken-hearted pain.Then this song called "Roll to me" came along. I understand the need for a hit to keep selling records, so I waited while all the other Del fans I know where crying sellout. Next thing I know I'm hearing "not where it's at" on the radio. The title could not be more appropriate. Currie has been listening to a little too much Oasis, and it shows. The tradional Del Amitri sound is almost gone here, only to be replaced by a kind of electrified-Beatle-fication. There are a couple of bright spots ("What I think She Sees" and "No Family Man"), and this import version is nice to have for the bonus tracks, but really, this is not their best work. The production is not clean, either, unlike Twisted, which has immpecciable sound quality.I'm anxiously awaiting the return of the brooding scotsman. Hope they leave the nods to the Beatles in Liverpool."
