Knife - the proverbial difficult second album. The success of High Land, Hard Rain led a big budget from Warner Bros., so producers John Brand and Bernie Clarke were replaced by Dire Straits' Mark Knopfler, Eastbourne was replaced by New Orleans and the acoustic guitars largely replaced by electric; this resulted inAztec Camera's follow-up to their highly rated debut dividing critics and fans alike. I bought my first copy of this album just less than ten years ago, when I decided to complete my Roddy Frame album collection and it was one of the last Aztec Camera releases I owned, purely because I had been put off by some of the reviews, especially those which compared Knife with the debut album I loved so much. Unfortunately, comparisons are inevitable when an artist like Frame finds so much success with their first record, but when you stop comparing Knife with High Land, Hard Rain, that's when you can really appreciate his second offering. No, it really isn't as good as their first release and the polished production means that it seems to lose a little bit of the heart-on-his-sleeve honesty that made High Land, Hard Rain aim straight for the heart of the listener, but as a pop album with plenty of great lyrics, memorable tunes and Frame's winning delivery, Knife still has a lot to offer.

Knife's energy and positivity bursts into life on the first track, Still On Fire, which announces itself with a guitar riff similar to The Jackson Five's I Want You Back and David Ruffy giving an Oblivious-style performance on the drums. The shimmering soul-influenced pop of Just Like The USA is catchy enough, but misses a certain depth both in terms of music and lyrics to raise it above being just an average Frame album track.

Years later it still sounds like a work of genius. What a shame you morphed into a David Classify-like schmoozer in later life!

Following the success of their lo-fi debut, High Land Hard Rain, East Kilbride's Aztec Camera took stock, and decided to recruit a big name producer for their sophomore effort.
Their choice of Dire Straits' frontman Mark Knopfler alienated many of the band's hardcore fans, as they saw him as the antithesis of their heroes.
Wasn't he a bit commercial, a bit corporate, a bit obvious?

They needn't have worried.
While Knife marks a definite change in the sound of Aztec Camera, the production is entirely appropriate for the material written by Roddy Frame.
This is a record packed with top pop thrills, from first track Still on Fire right through to The Birth of the True, a live favourite of Frame's to this day.

Closing the album is the title track Knife, a heavier, guitar overdub laden affair, with Frame displaying all his axe-wielding talents, without sacrificing his melodic sensibilities.

A winning combination.
