Format: Audio CD
Amigos was the last great Lindisfarne album from the Geordies. It featured the classic lineup augmented by the talented (at the time) new member Marty Craggs. Take a song such as 'You're the one' that simply encapsulates the Lindisfarne sound. Beautiful harmonies, a cracking Alan Hull tune and that magical mandolin from Ray Jackson. Elsewhere there's the anthemic 'One World' which opens the album, the jaunty pop of 'Everything changes' (with Rod Clements growling bass line) and the humourous 'Do it like that'. Rod Clements has more songs on this album than usual, the best being the collaboration with Alan Hull 'Working for the man' but 'Roll on that day' is also wonderful. Not a duff track on the album actually.
After this album, Lindisfarne started to disband gradually with Ray Jackson departing and of course the sad death of Alan Hull in 1995 and the sound was never quite the same again.

When I first heard this album it felt like lindisfarne ( a band that I'd followed, been to see many times and admired) were taking the easy option and almost treading water. The tour that followed it's release was a tame and lacklustre affair, with plenty of space given over to play material from the album that, to be honest, most of the audience were unfamiliar with and really was'nt that bothered about hearing.
Oh, how I wish could wind back the clock and remain standing at the front at the UEA, while they played songs from this album, soaking up just how bloody good they were, instead of shuffling my way to the bar!
Over time this album has matured very nicely, thankyou very much. Listening to it now it has aged much better than say, Dance Your Life Away, which is still a good album.
From the wonderful 'Everything Changes' (has there ever been a more innocent and total celebration of just being completely in love with someone?)to the whimiscal 'Wish you Were Here' it just keeps delivering stunningly crafted songs. And, although the real Lindisfarne sound is as strong as ever, it never alows itself to switch on to auto pilot, reasuringly familiar but never boring.
So, yes, the last great Lindisfarne album (with unfortunately the worst ever cover art!)If you love everything that was great about classic Lindisfarne and Alan Hull, this will sit in your collection and probably get played more often than say 'The News'.

A very nice album showing that Lindisfarne is still going strong. Alun Hull's influence is very noticible but Rod Clements certainly has a hand on the tiller. I never knew that Lindisfarne had carried on the good work since the 1970's until when I ordered Promenade their best ever in my opinion in the modern era I knew I had to get their other albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lindisfarne's third comeback 9 Jan. 2002
By K. A. Levine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Lindisfarne, a folk rock group based in the north of England, was one of the most popular bands in the country for a brief period in the early 70s, but a combination of weakened songwriting and unfair critical bashing resulted in a rapid fall from favor. In 1978, they made a comeback of sorts to some fanfare, then quickly returned to obscurity. "Amigos", released in 1989, marks an artistic high water mark for the band, not achieved since their very first album and, while it didn't produce the hits of early years, it returned Lindisfarne to public notice and pleased many of the faithful. This was achieved through a confident folk rock sound with country, world and progressive elements mixed in, and a general feeling that a good time was had by all. The harmonies are happily and slightly askew, the songwriting is shared and top notch, and the band plays together with aplomb. Most of the tracks are excellent, in particular the opener "One World", and its instrumental reprise in the closing track by countryperson piper Kathryn Tickell, "Everything Changes" with the late great Alan Hull's giddy playing and singing, the Afro-sounding "Roll on that Day" which rocks, rolls, twists, and frolicks like the classic it should have been, the sweet ballads "You're the One" and "Don't Say Goodnight". The innocent genius of Lindisfarne is summed up in "When the night Comes Down" with the immortal refrain which runs more or less "Some people go to the mountains, some people go to the sea, but one thing you know you can count on, you can always go downtown with me". A great introduction to one of England's longest lasting musical treasures, and one that won't disappoint long time fans either.
