The Proclaimers are matched brothers — Craig and Charlie Reid from Edinburgh, Scotland. «Sunshine on Leith,» their second relate, was from the word go released in 1988. At that yet, «I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)» was a mitigate hit on college unnerve stations, peaking at #21 on the Novel Unnerve map. The tune also did well in their constitutional U.K. — going t
o #11. Five years later, the tune was resurrected in the Johnny Depp layer, «Benny & Joon,» and spot all the way to #3 on the Top 100. In extension, the tune and CD went gold. Most people who bought the relate in 1993 probably listened mostly to that hit; however, they really missed out on some significant music.

«Sunshine on Leith» is often dismissed as a CD that contains one hit and nothing else. I«m reminded of CDs such as «Tubthumping» by Chumbawamba or «How Bizarre» by OMC. The hazard of becoming a one-hit wonder is that everybody wants the greatest-greatest extent CD to bitch exactly like the hit. «Sunshine on Leith» doesn»t just contain 11 variations on «I«m Gonna Be (500 Miles),» which is propitious for the selective listener. Only «I»m on My Way» has a alike resemble, trill-a-fancy regard. Some of the other highlights list: «Cap in Hand» — a pure old-fashioned tune about fighting; «Sean» — an charming Irish ditty («I'll tell you now that grown men cry and Irish girls are pretty»); and «Come on Nature» — a surprisingly boppy tune. They also list several outrageously pleasant ballads here, particularly the woods-tinged «My Old Pal the Blues» and the sumptuous, cheerless «Sunshine on Leith.»

The Proclaimers' music is basically unnerve, although it incorporates unprejudiced amounts of citizenry and UK-sounding influences. As a end result, the CD is quite diversified, with some pure rockers and pleasant ballads. Their music is relatively stripped, and it reminds me of 50s unnerve in some ways — windowless unnerve music with unbending-onward lyrics. Overall, this CD has been decidedly overlooked and dignitary of greater regard — much recommended.
