    DEL AMITRI "change everything" cd, 1992:

    career stats:
    studio albums..............6
    singles.......................19

    this album....................#2 UK...#24 AU...#178 US
    singles:
    "always the last to know"........#13 UK...#39 AU...#30 US
    "be my downfall"...................#30 UK...#86 AU

    "when you were young"..........#20 UK

    Scottish alt rock band...
    third album...
    used to own the second one also, Waking Hours, but ive lost that over time...
    not a bad album, continues on the same semi-acoustic rock of that previous one...
    no "kiss this thing goodbye" or "nothing ever happens" on this one but still reasonably good...
    only one track I love on here, a couple I don't like and nine I do like, overall score 1.9...
    I never went back after this album because their sound never really evolved, was happy with the two I had..

    from the album, the second single, and my favourite track:

    Default 10000 Maniacs - MTV Unplugged - 1993

    from the cd room



    Natalie unplugged herself from the band after the recording of this album

    my favorite song from the band
    from the only album I really like, In My Tribe
    lyrics are heart breaking

    No, not chicken. It is easy listening. Kind that will put me to sleep.
    Just was not paying enough attention.

    IGGY POP "post pop depression" cd, 2016

    career stats:
    studio albums.............20
    singles.......................15

    this album..................#17 US...#16 CAN...#11 NZ...#5 UK
    singles:
    "gardenia"...................no chart action

    twentieth and latest effort from Iggy...
    I only own this one, his first two (which I love) and a double set compilation...
    its Iggy, end of story, his style hasn't changed in over forty years...
    very little I like on this one though, just sounds flat and insipid for the most part...
    lyrics aren't too bad though...
    would probably fit into the "don't like" category if I scored it...
    one stand out track for me, linked below:

    MENTAL AS ANYTHING "get wet" vinyl/cd 1979

    career stats:
    studio album................13
    singles.........................40

    this album.........#19 AU
    singles:
    "the nips are getting bigger"......#16
    "possible theme for a future
    tv drama series".......................#39
    "Egypt"...................................no chart action

    debut set from this Aussie new wave/pop band...
    from memory I have five of their albums, the first five I think?....
    this one went platinum out here as did several others over their career...
    band still tours but haven't released any new material in almost a decade...
    definite new wave feel on most tracks, a hint of country on others and straight out
    pop on other tracks...
    lyrics are often novelty, but not funny novelty, more light hearted like Dr Hook's tracks...
    best track here or me is their debut single...
    if you don't know what 'nips' are, theyre what we call 'shots', 'fingers' in a bar, as per spirit drinks.
    a good album, not great, would probably score a 2.0 if I scored the tracks...
