Del Amitri: Del Amitri (Big Star)
Martin Aston, Melody Maker, 25 May 1985
IT MIGHT not be such a good idea to delve too deeply into Del Amitri's arresting pop because you might be deceiving yourself. Forcing any mantle of subversion on their wee Glaswegian shoulders or looking for that inevitable Sound of Young Scotland tag would be unnecessary and cruel, for this debut is no calling card for any new pop rebellion. But it knows where it might seduce.
