The rocky and softer sides of Del Amitri on one CD,
This review is from: Some Other Sucker's Paradise (Audio CD)
the belated follow up to the best selling 'Twisted', this is final album of truly original ideas from the head of Justin Currie, though virtually half of the album is written with Iain Harvie and the title track with John McLaughlin, who sadly succumbed to the effects of diabetes.
Not Where It's At has established itself as a compilation favourite, rightly so, with great guitars and witty lyrics; the album follows in light and dark contrast, heavy rocking on the majority of the songs, with a dash of light balladry thrown to add some variety.
The reissue features a couple of tracks originally available first as additional tracks on CD singles, or both on Lousy With Love B-side compilation (Paper Thin is a remix on the Sucker reissue).
If you are unsure which CD to start with Del Amitri, I'd recommend 'Twisted' first, then moving on this CD, then to the earlier CD's (Waking Hours/Change Everything) to hear the roots of the Del Amitri sound (except the self-titled debut: avoid).
