Justin Currie and band just nailed the shit out of their sophomore release CHANGE EVERYTHING. We played it endlessly in the store when it came out in 1992. From the opening chords of Be My Downfall through Surface Of the Moon and right to the final glow of Sometimes I Just Have to Say Your Name, Del Amitri truly delivers on the blissful power pop I loved in the 90s. Nothing special about the lyrics – which is weird coming from me I know – but the catchy hooks and soaring melodies make them almost unimportant to the joy. It was huge in Scotland where they are from, but it was almost completely missed here at the time.
