Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 17 September 2013
The glad news that many of us saddoes have been waiting for - Del Amitri live activity in 2014 - does not in any way distract our attention from this fine album.

From the opening track, the vulnerable 'Falsetto' performed here with a full band playing (not how I've been used to hearing it) to the final track, the sublime 'Little Stars', this album is blessed with the quality vocal performance and superb songwriting that we have come to expect from Justin Currie.

Beautifully recorded in Texas in October 20102, using local musicians recommended by producer Mike McCarthy, this pleasing album admittedly does follow on stylistically from 'What Is Love For' and 'The Great War' and maybe there are no huge surprises, but there is still enough variety in his work to grab any listener by the ears.

The single 'Bend to my will' reprises the country-tinged feel of classic Del Amitri, as does 'On my conscience'. 'Pricilla' is blessed with a nice big acoustic guitar sound and his trademark precisely double-tracked vocals. 'I hate myself for loving you' sees him straying slightly towards Rolling Stones territory. 'Half of me' is one of his better songs.

If you don't own anything by Justin Currie, you're missing something - the three albums he has released so far under his own name are more than worthwhile additions to any collection.
