Twisted unexpectedly generated an American Top Ten hit for Del Amitri with "Roll to Me." Not surprisingly, that song provides the touchstone for Some Other Sucker's Parade, the follow-up to Twisted. Like that record, Some Other Sucker's Parade isn't that different from Del Amitri's other records -- it's a collection of pleasant, jangly guitar-pop, with nice melodies and gentle hooks. It doesn't offer anything new, but that's not bad, because the group's music is appealing as it is. Some Other Sucker's Parade won't win Del Amitri any new fans, but to longtime followers, it's a welcome addition to their library.
