CD Reviews

One of the best albums I own

"Del Amitri have changed a lot that's for sure, I didn't even know this was Del Amitri when I heard it for the first time, it's so different from their later works. I've just got to say this is one of the best albums I've got. It's got a great atmosphere to it, every song is just pure pop, it's brilliant. The songs never get boring becuase they are around the 3-4 minute mark which makes the album pretty short but it's just paced right. I'd say it was one of their best definetely. It's a masterpeice even. I love it. Top stuff."

"I get a kick out the one review listed: ACK, ACK...HATED IT!!Everyone else afterwards thinks it flippin' brilliant, and I have to fall into the latter category. The Dels have done NOTHING that comes REMOTELY close to this magnificent work, (for that matter, neither had anyone else...hmmm...maybe Prefab Sprout). The observation that everything afterward was "polished and lubed for commercial airplay" is dead on!! They are truly left to "fly" on this record. The musicianship on this disc is incredible, and contrary to what that other guy says, the lyrics are phenomenal, ("I suppose love lives in a dustbin behind the garden wall....")I saw them doing an acoustic set at a last-minute, unpublicized show in Detroit - what a thrill.This is one of the BEST pop albums of all time, in my not-so-humble-opinion, (and don't get me wrong; I KNOW it's just that). I am INFINITELY glad I found it here, my old cassette from the mid-80's has seen better days.If you are able, pick it up...NOW!!"
Pop genius

"I'll admit that I came about this album by accident. I immediately fell in love with "Roll to Me" and after vaguely remembering that they had a tune a few years earlier that I also liked (Always the Last to Know) I went to the record store with the intention of buying the new CD (I am refering to Twisted which was new at the time). They only had this one in stock. I hesitated but ended up with it mostly because it was only a few bucks. Thank god. Every song kicks ass. Screw Roll to Me. These songs are incredible. One after another. My personal faves are Former Owner and Sticks and Stones, and Ceasefire. I put I Was Here and Keepers in a league with the best the eighties have to offer, period. The only tune I don't care for is the first one (Heard Through a Wall I believe is the title of it). Great stuff. Pick it up if you find it. One word of caution from a person that was subsequently disappointed. This is the only Del album that sounds like...well, like it does. They changed drastically and for the worse save a few one offs in this reviewer's op."
