Synopsis

Album Description
Best known for the songs "Letter From America," "I'm On My Way" and "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)," Charlie and Craig Reid have delighted fans with their music. Catchy melodies and lyrics are at the core of The Proclaimers and their new album Life With You showcases the brothers at their best. Wit and deceptive simplicity shine through on the new CD, Life With You. The title track and first radio song is a rousing sing-along with a Motown feel and is sure to be another Proclaimers anthem.

Best Proclaimers Album Ever
Liz | USA | 09/14/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I pre-ordered the 2-CD edition of this album from Amazon UK because it had an earlier release date there & was actually cheaper than on Amazon US. There are no filler songs on it! The live recordings of previously recorded songs on the bonus disc are a bit more raw than the original versions, with a very fresh sound. The new songs are the best of The Proclaimers-thoughtful & thought provoking, but mostly, just great music. I loved their cover of Wreckless Eric's "The Whole Wide World"; always a wonderful song, The Proclaimers' version is lovely too. The arrangements of all the songs sound brilliant, the songs widely varied, the big surprise here is that people in the US still don't seem all that aware of the Reid's. I can't recommend this CD strongly enough. If you have never heard them, or only know "500 Miles", do yourself a favor and hear what they can do."

"ARE YOU LIKE MOST AMERICANS LIKE ME AND ONLY REMEMBER THESE GUYS FROM THE VIDEO OF "I'M GONNA BE 500 MILES"?I'LL BE HONEST AND SAY I THOUGHT THESE GUYS WOULD BE FLIPPING HAMBURGERS BY NOW.I NEVER GAVE THEM ANOTHER LISTEN.I WAS AT BARNES AND NOBLE THE OTHER DAY LISTENING TO THE NEW CD'S THAT JUST ARRIVED.I PICKED THIS CD UP AND WAS BLOWN AWAY HOW GOOD IT SOUNDED.I BOUGHT IT AND IT IS THE BEST CD I HAVE BOUGHT IN MANY YEARS AND I HAVE BOUGHT HUNDREDS.WHAT BRINGS ME BACK TO LISTEN AGAIN AND AGAIN IS THE SONG LYRICS.THERE REALLY ISN'T A BAD SONG ON THIS CD WHICH IS A RARE THING INDEED.I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE THINKING EVERYONE GIVES THIS CD 5 STARS.WELL I'M HERE TO SAY THIS REALLY DESERVES IT.IT SOUNDS LIKE IT COULD HAVE BEEN RECORDED IN 1978 AND IT WILL BE FRESH SOUNDING 20 YEARS FROM NOW.I REALLY MISJUDGED THE REID BROTHERS THEY ARE GREAT!DON'T BE LIKE MOST AMERICANS AND LET THIS ONE SLIDE BY WITHOUT A LISTEN.DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GET THE 2 CD SET WITH THE LIVE CONCERT AND ACOUSTIC OUTTAKES FROM LIFE WITH YOU.YOU WON'T BE DISSAPPOINTED BELIEVE ME."

"I work a lot on the road. Got a big box with piles of cd's old-new written and bitten. Change fast cause i get bored fast - eaven my favorites just hang in there for one play. This cd is so great that i heaven't skipped a song (noticed today)the two weeks i've had it.
Love the sound, lyrics and that scotstalk. I know how it feels to talk differently - icelandic and proud. Go Proclaimers be more winners - and i love your straight talk to those who deserve it."
