All Music Guide - Steve "Spaz" Schnee
After four years in hibernation, Del Amitri emerged as a gang of mature pop stars. Dropping their edgy quirkiness, Justin Currie and the boys explored their Scottish folk roots, refashioned their sound, and quickly established themselves as a rock band with heart. Still retaining a bit of the Elvis Costello musical heritage, Del Amitri added a dose of Elvis Presley check out Currie's sideburns! and a healthy chunk of Van Morrison. This time, the critics flocked in droves, and the public started to take notice. Highlights include "Nothing Ever Happens," "Stone Cold Sober," and "Kiss This Thing Goodbye."

    Hands down their best CD!!!!

    This band probably made the best album in 1990! The music is just that good!! Their neo-folk rock sound and honest lyrics will make this CD a keeper for all time...This is must buy for anyone's collection. It's a shame that this band didn't get the PR it should have gotten after it was released. I recommend anyone who likes pop and rock sounds with great lyrics you can actually understand......

    Don't overlook this CD!!

    There's something about Del Amitri's music that brings out the solemn side of everyone. Of all the Del Amitri Cd's, I agree this is the best, because you're listening to pure talent before they were discovered, not rushed tunes with slightly sloppy lyrics. Everything about this CD is amazing, ''When I Want You'', and ''This Side of the Morning'' are my personal favorites because of their smooth lyrics and amazing tunes. I recommened this CD to anyone who likes good music. Trust me, you defiantly won't regret buying this.
