Features Song Lyrics for The Alarm's Change: 1989-1990 album.

Change is the fourth studio album by The Alarm. It was released in September 1989 on IRS Records. The album was released initially on vinyl LP, cassette and CD, reaching No. 13 in the UK charts and No. 75 in the US charts. An extended re-mastered version was released, including extra tracks. Sold Me Down the River" was released before the album, reaching No. 43 in the UK singles chart

Clearly, change was called for in the Alarm's career, and on their fourth album, the group achieved a tighter hard rock sound by turning to producer Tony Visconti. Their extensive roadwork and promotional efforts had opened doors for them at AOR and college radio, which played "Sold Me Down The River," "Devolution Workin' Man Blues," and "Love Don't Come Easy. River" even became The Alarm's biggest .
