'Acoustic' is, as you'd guess from the title, a collection of acoustic versions of Simple Minds songs from their previously albums. As someone who is not that familiar with the work of the band outside of their big hits I found this a really enjoyable and strong album of nicely delivered numbers.
Favourites on the album include opener 'The American' and KT Tunstall-featuring lead single 'Promised You A Miracle'. There are also great moments scattered in songs like 'Sanctify Yourself', 'Alive and Kicking' and their big song 'Don't You (Forget About Me)' but there's not really a track on it I didn't enjoy, delivered in a great style. Well worth picking up. (7/10)
