How these two Scotsmen escaped deity status I will never know. Their talent is overwhelming. More intelligent, introspective, self-empowering, self-effacing, humerous tunes do not exist-period. This CD has harmonies (and lyrics) that will break your heart.Their geeky persona's are clearly a put-on, every tune radiates the confidence of proud men who clearly have mastered their craft. Above all else, this CD rocks harder than the Indigo Girls on Scottish Whiskey. I have since purchased their two preceeding CD's and have only rave commentary for "The Proclaimers" (check out "This is the Story" for an acoustic masterpiece). If you buy one CD this year, make it a "Proclaimers" CD-any one. They truly stand alone.

This album, supported by a U.S. tour, is perhaps the highest-energy Proclaimers offering to date, delivered on the heels of their unexpected attention for the song "500 Miles" that appeared in "Benny and Joon." The Reid brothers are nothing if not themselves, with strong Scottish accents and concerns about family, religion, work and Scotland, all expressed in song. They tip a cap to their blues roots by covering Otis Redding's "These Arms of Mine," but the true gems are "Shout, Shout" and "Don't Turn Out Like Your Mother."

These guys are practically unknown in the US but they are huge in the UK and for good reason. They are such clever, expressive musicians and so polished in their style. This is a fantastic album. My favorite song is " A Long Long Long Time Ago".

The Proclaimers' 1994 album Hit the Highway seemed to appeal only to a small segment of the populace. Unfortunately, they were thought of as one hit wonders. Charlie and Craig Reid had something going for them that so many European, especially UK groups never had. They NEVER lost their accent. Honestly, I love that about them. They are true to themselves and aren't trying to sound like everybody else.

Hit the Highway is an album of this and that. It ranges from songs such as "I Want to be a Christian" and "I Want to Believe" to "What Makes You Cry?" and "Let's Get Married". It's good to hear them on this album considering after this they didn't record until 2001.
