BBC Review

Paolo Nutini absolutely, without a doubt, ROCKS, only in a really quiet sort of way.

Jack Smith 2006

You know what? This album is good. You wanna know something else? Paolo Nutini absolutely, without a doubt, ROCKS, only in a really quiet sort of way. Paolo needs nothing other than his gently strummed acoustic guitar to make with the rock, because he can enthral you with his voice, compelling you to lie on your bed and waste away hours just listening to him sing your troubles away. It may be a worn cliché but, trust me now, isn't that really what music is for?

"Last Request" you'll have already heard and swooned over, but there's plenty more where that came from. The title track is as bittersweet an ode to the town you come from as you'll hear this side of an acoustic Arctic Monkey, and there's still eight other pretty ditties here to cause total spine melt.

Which brings us to our only complaint...why the hell are there only 10 songs?
