Del Amitri return with their fourth album, their first for five years. As usual, many of the tracks feature imaginative melodies and lyrics, although a harder edge is evident, particularly amongst the earlier tracks and this takes some getting used to. The album has become more enjoyable after repeated listens.
Whilst the unquestionable highlight is the closing ballad "Just Getting By", surely Justin Currie's finest ever vocal performance, there is much else to savour, including the soulful "Out Falls The Past" and the wry humour of "Drunk In A Band".
Del Amitri seemed destined to remain in the second division of the sales league, but this album should maintain their solid fan base and, perhaps, gain a few new supporters willing to give them a listen.

...but that is what this band has done. This album is a natural progression of songwriting and production. The melodies will linger in your head for days, the lyrics will make you stare at your speakers, and the brilliant (and surprising) production will keep your ears interested for multiple listens.
Support this band, even if they've been dropped. Universal doesn't know a good thing enough to push it, apparently.

5 years on from the hit and miss "Some Other Suckers..." (best single that never was - Medicine - withdrawn as a single due to Diana's demise. I'm still trying to work that one out!!) and three years since the Best Of.. package, here come the Dels with a new album which, on first hearing, makes you wonder what the hell they've been doing in the interim. Horror! No catchy "drive time" song such as "Always the Last to know", no real "lighters ahoy" song, such as "Be My Down fall" or "Driving with the Brakes on" etc. Initial disappointment, however, turns to a summery smile. The boys have not been resting on their laurels but writing and recording songs that actually have far more "layers" and musical depth than some of their older stuff. They have matured and so has the music. They have even introduced (subtley!) the likes of drum machines into their music.
The songs gradually grow on you and plant themselves in your head. The opener, "Just before you Leave" carries on where "Cry to be Found" left off - shimering strings and wonderful vocals from Justin Currie, it's a peach of a song and is how songs really should be - soulful, heartfelt and, hey! call me a traditionalist, tuneful.
There are some great songs which follow on - "Buttons on My Clothes" could be perceived asjust another "oh no, she's gone and left me" kinda song but a real sense of loss is portrayed in the song and, if there was any justice in this world, it would be a number one single...but we all know that ain't ever gonna happen.
"Wash Her Away"'s riff is as rough as the sentiments in the song. "Out Falls the Past" is simple and brilliant.

I've followed Del Amitri for many years, and seen them live any number of times. Over the years, they have produced some ok songs, many good songs, and some astonishingly excellent songs.
Despite, or because of, being away from the studio for 5 years, this album comes in right up the top of their scale. There are some tracks that are commercial enough to be released as singles, but won't get played on the radio because everyone knows Del Amitri aren't cool, and the usual raft of stories of loss, failure, heartbreak and the usual Justin Currie topics. But that is what we love about this band.
They just do it so well.

Well it was worth the wait...this band never fail to amaze me...songs always so strong and never going with the flow mining their own furrow. Justin Currie remains one of the masters of the lost love lyric and is surely one of the best singers in rock music today really on form here especially on the closing Just Getting By...Only one thing that stops me giving it a full 5 is One More Last Hurrah which is a brave attempt at a different style and can be commended but it doesn't quite fit in with the rest of the album...much better would've been to include I'm An Unbeliever from the b side of the single which I cannot believe didn't make the final tracklisting...Standout track for me is Buttons On My Clothes stone classic Dels...now for the live shows....can't wait!...cheers Dels you've made my year so far !

bought this after seeing del amitri last month in Liverpool, they were superb live. I already had all the other albums, so I bought this to complete the collection and it's good, but not as good as their earlier albums.

I somehow managed to forget about DA (blame it on Beethoven) after buying three of their releases in the 90s but heard one of the songs from 'Waking Hours' recently and began to listen to them again. Bought this as a download and listened to it, initially with reservation as it's not in the same rock/folk vein as the earlier recordings. However, it's grown on me and have got used to the edgier sound and cynical tone. A testament to Iain Harvie's song writing ability and JC's humour in 'Drunk in a Band' along with his smooth vocals.
