Synopsis

Amazon.com
Del Amitri is a straightforward Scottish guitar band that formed partly as a response to bombastic countrymen Simple Minds. The quartet's third album, Twisted, is a strong collection of ultra-melodic rock with more of a Beatles influence than in the past. As usual, the somber lyrics of tunes such as "Food for Songs" and "Here and Now" contrast with the upbeat melodies, hence the "twist" in the title. --Jim DeRogatis

CD Reviews

Tell Her This
talkhard | Ohio and Oregon, USofA | 12/05/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am a new listener of Del Amitri. My friend introduced me to them, he played this beautiful love song, and I just had to know who could write such lyrics. When he told me, I was like who? But now I am hooked. The song is beautiful, sensitive, and truthful. I can listen to it for hours on end. The rest of the CD is also very intriguing, but I don't think I will ever find a better lyric then "Tell her something in my heart neeeds her more then clowns need the laughter of the crowd" WOW! is all I can say. Thank you Jamie for exposing me to true artwork."
The Music of My Life
talkhard | 11/26/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Del Amitri, may not be for everyone, infact I seriously douubt they will every make it big with the mass populous. This is a record for people who like good clean guitar playing and honest heart felt lyrics. It is a CD for people who miss honest rock and roll and I tired of the poor substitutes in this country. You won't see these guys opening for Cheryl Crow or The Smashing Pumpkins and I like them for that reason. I spent a year of my life with 4 of my closest friends listening to this CD everyday and I am still not tired of it and each song brings back memories. I can honestly tell you that if I could pick a sound track for my life this would be it."
Del Amitri's best album to date!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album has it all...juicy guitar licks, melodic acoustic ballads, and wonderful harmonies. And to top it off, the lyrics speak to many levels. I can't praise this effort highly enough."
