Customer Reviews

I heard three sample tracks from this album.
William B. Dobyns
My one problem with the album is that many of the songs seem a bit too short.
Kindle Customer
Too bad for all of us who think this album is about as good as it gets.

Del Amitri's fifth studio album really deserves another listen. And then several others. 'Some Other Sucker's Parade' is not as immediately catchy as 'Twisted' or the unsurpassed 'Change Everything' but patience (this is one of those albums that gets better with repeated listenings) will reveal an album full of poetic lyrics (Justin Currie is one the greatest songwriters of the last 20 years--his songs truly read like poetry) and great instrumentation. The intertwining of guitar and piano is done better on this album than any I have heard and there's not a bad song in the batch. While not particularly uplifting, the songs will make you think and listen in wonder at the poetry of it all--and make you wish these guys would put albums out much more frequently. Del Amitri certainly aren't the most prolific of bands, but the albums they do put out are amongst the most well-written and performed available. If you dig any of there other albums, you will love this one--and track down as many b-sides as you can find; this is one band whose b-sides (and there are many more in addition to those collected on the 'Lousy in Love' cd) are as good as their a-sides (and that is very very good). Very Highly Recommended.

Some Other Sucker's Parade is a resounding YES after the somewhat disappointing (but always interesting) "Twisted". This album calls forth all the great things that Del offered in the 1st two brilliant albums, and then expounds upon them: Currie's bloody great voice. Uncanny song writing. A smoothness that's usually only found in drinks with paper umbrellas in them. Brilliant stuff. Highlights: Oh, hell ... the whole 1st side.

Del Amitri's CD "Some Other Sucker's Parade" doesn'tget the push it deserves after their hit with "Roll to Me"off the "Twisted" CD. I feel like I'm gettig old but I'm only 32 damn it and I don't wanna have to search for these guys on adult contemporary radio. Del Amitri rocks! Granted their lyrics would go largely unappreciated on some of these moronic rock stations but come on. Band's like "Matchbox 20" and "3rd Eye Blind" really stink in comparison with these guys. It annoys me to see Del passed over for these trendy B.S. bands. They get all the air-play in what should be Del Amitri's place. These guys are an original great bluesy rock'n'roll band. They still sound hard edged yet smooth and very warm with an impeccable feel for catchiness (if that's a word) on this CD. I wish I could say something other than the obvious... Del Amitri is probably the best band, lyrically, vocally and musically, with the best all around songs, for their type of music (timeless).

OK. I will be the first to say that I am not a true Del Amitri "fan", I have never listen to Twisted (except the song "Roll to Me") and I have not been following them since the early 80's when they started. Having said all that, I have to tell you that this is one of the best albums I've ever heard. The first time I heard anything off this album was on a Launch CD (when they used to be a CD music magazine). I heard three sample tracks from this album. That same day, I went to a record store and they had it in one of those "listen before you buy" set-ups. So, I listened to 1 minute of every song. And every song I came to seemed better than the previous one. Needless to say, I bought it right then and there.
I have worn this CD out many times. And, when I have accidentally lost it myself or from letting someone borrow it, I ALWAYS replace it...even though it is out-of-print. It is that good. I would consider this a good starting point for anyone wanting to get into Del Amitri. Then listen to Twisted...

In a time when everyone seems to be searching madly for the next big trend in popular music, Del Amitri continues to perfect their pop/rock formula with "Some Other Sucker's Parade". This is a perfect rock album from beginning to end. Any music fan should do themselves a great favor and pick this one up. This album does what every new artist (The Wallflowers, Matchbox 20...) keeps trying to do... it reaches pop perfection.

has been an amazing kick. I never knew these guys existed, till someone recommended I give a listen to "Nothing Ever Happens" (which isn't on this CD, but I'll get to that). I was impressed and intrigued enough to check out the Dels' best-of CD, and from there I was hooked.

This CD isn't as over-all brilliant and arresting as some of their earlier albums, but it's still pretty bloody good. Some quite good songs in the lineup: the title song, "Not Where It's At," "Medicine," "Make It Always Be Too Late." Even when the music isn't much (as in "Through All that Nothing"), the lyrics can still be effective, intelligent, carrying the writers' trademark twists of meaning, some more subtle than others. Other times the lyrics aren't inspiring ("No Family Man") but the music/melody is the saving grace. Among the songs about love going wrong (or occasionally right) are things like the odd little reflective gem "Mother Nature's Writing," or the grating "High Times," which is a good parody of yer typical drug culture song, but is, well, grating. But then there's the wry, bounce-around-the-room "Life Is Full" or the quirky, bluesy "Paper Thin." The version of this album that I bought has a bonus track, "Sleep Instead of Teardrops," which goes in the quite-good list.

Even if this CD isn't up to the Dels' usual standard, it's still Del Amitri, which ain't bad at all.

8/8/06--Since initially reviewing this CD, I've changed my mind about it not being up to Del Amitri's usual standard! It is, too, brilliant. And powerful. It should have at least a 4-star rating, perhaps even the full 5. I've come to appreciate "Cruel Light of Day," "No Family Man," "What I Think She Sees," "High Times" and the title song more fully. I think I found it a little intimidating at first, but no more.
