Product Description

CD AAndM Records, 540 311-2, 1995, 12 Track

Amazon.com

Del Amitri is a straightforward Scottish guitar band that formed partly as a response to bombastic countrymen Simple Minds. The quartet's third album, Twisted, is a strong collection of ultra-melodic rock with more of a Beatles influence than in the past. As usual, the somber lyrics of tunes such as "Food for Songs" and "Here and Now" contrast with the upbeat melodies, hence the "twist" in the title. --Jim DeRogatis

Del Amitri, may not be for everyone, infact I seriously douubt they will every make it big with the mass populous. This is a record for people who like good clean guitar playing and honest heart felt lyrics. It is a CD for people who miss honest rock and roll and I tired of the poor substitutes in this country. You won't see these guys opening for Cheryl Crow or The Smashing Pumpkins and I like them for that reason. I spent a year of my life with 4 of my closest friends listening to this CD everyday and I am still not tired of it and each song brings back memories. I can honestly tell you that if I could pick a sound track for my life this would be it.

This album has it all...juicy guitar licks, melodic acoustic ballads, and wonderful harmonies. And to top it off, the lyrics speak to many levels. I can't praise this effort highly enough.

I am a new listener of Del Amitri. My friend introduced me to them, he played this beautiful love song, and I just had to know who could write such lyrics. When he told me, I was like who? But now I am hooked. The song is beautiful, sensitive, and truthful. I can listen to it for hours on end. The rest of the CD is also very intriguing, but I don't think I will ever find a better lyric then "Tell her something in my heart neeeds her more then clowns need the laughter of the crowd" WOW! is all I can say. Thank you Jamie for exposing me to true artwork.

Beautiful music! "You can't change later, here and now", Del Amitri have a way of summing up how many of us feel today. "Driving With The Brakes On" and "It Might As Well Be You" are great ballad-esque songs that remind us that it is all right to be "only" human. Definite "must feel" music.

These songs are well written, played and sang extremely well, and the production is superb.

I can only listen to it if I make up my own lyrics. Everything about it is excellent guitar based, two and three part harmonies, and classic MOR hit stuff.

The lyrics are depressing and a never ending thump on the "Life Sucks" drum. I wish these guys had a little better attitude because they aren't missing anything musically.

Never the less I gave it 4 stars because it's so well done. I recommend a dose of antidepressants to allow the toe taping and humming along that goes with listening to it while ignoring the lyrics.

This whole CD reminds one of what great songs are supposed to be about: wonderfully hooky melodies strung together with some of the most insightful lyrics ever penned. I know, I sound like I'm gushing. But for nine years, this is the first CD I pack along on trips and the one I've simply never grown tired of singing with. Justin Currie just doesn't miss on this record: "You can find yourself one day/Staring into space/With a suitcase waiting by the door/You can think you've got it made/Till it hits you in the face/That these are not the people you wanted to be before." Or listen to Ian Harvie's winsome, jangly guitars on "Here and Now." From delightful inversions of compassion ("Food for Songs") to the empty hypocrisy of macro-compassion ("Start with Me").. from achingly poignant confessions ("Driving with the Brakes On") to light pop confection ("Roll to Me").. from eviscerating insights on humanity ("Being Somebody Else") to touching narratives of love and loss ("Tell Her This" "Never too late to be Alone") Del Amitri never disappoints. It might be enough if such lyrical genius was the end of the story. But in their melodies the Dels prove that they really are songsmiths that approach Lennon & McCartney. And now, of course, you're convinced this all is effusive nonsense. But I dare you to listen and say otherwise. Enjoy.

To the person who asked what this song is about...I am a firm believer that songs are about whatever they bring to your mind. I think the song is about abortion. Give it a listen again with that thought and see if it makes more sense to you.
It is without a doubt me favorite song on the CD.

If you like Del Amitri even a little bit, you will love this disc!
It is one of my favorites in their entire collection. It has just the right blend of music for intense listening, or casual background music. I would give it 6 stars if I could.
GET IT!
