iTunes Editors' Notes

Paolo Nutini landed a contract with Atlantic Records at the age of 18 based on the power of his voice — a rich, expressive instrument that endearingly blends his Scottish brogue with some grit and gravel to produce a soulful timbre that belies his tender age. These Streets is an impressive debut, and the overall quality of the songwriting shows an unusual maturity. The majority of the songs are slow acoustic ballads (some with strings) and it’s to Nutini’s credit that he pulls them off convincingly. In particular, “Last Request” and the title tune are excellent vehicles for his outstanding vocals, but he shines most brightly on the upbeat numbers, especially “Jenny Don’t Be Hasty,” about a woman who loves everything about him except his young age, and the catchy “New Shoes” with its absolutely infectious chorus. More of these kinds of energetic tunes would be most welcome, but that’s a quibble — this is a strong first effort by a young artist with a promising future.

Customer Reviews

Original Style

While New Shoes will probably be his first single there are a multitude of great gems on this album. My favourite is Jenny Don't Be Hasty because its grittier than the rest of the album and has a great background story behind it (he had been dating a girl he met at a gig for a while, but had lied to her about his age saying he was 23 rather than 18 and when he finally told her she apparently gave him a slap and walked-off. OUCH!). Last Request and Rewind should be your next listens and they're the not so classic love songs. Finally, those of you who really want to give this disc a spin (and i suggest you do) Loving You, These Streets, and a Million Faces will begin to be your favourite down-in-the-gutter love songs. ENJOY!

incredible!

He is amazinnng! Listen to loving you....its by far the best song on the album. Then i would suggest listening to million faces, last request, and rewind. Honestly the entire album is gold. He is going to be huge one day

Fab Album!

I am so impressed by this album. I LOVE pretty much every song on this cd, his music style and the originality and gorgeousness of his voice. You can listen to his songs while in any mood and with company or simply while just driving in your car.

Biography

Born: January 09, 1987 in Paisley, Scotland

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '00s, '10s

In much the same way that José González hails from Sweden and not Spain, Paolo Nutini is not a smooth Italian pop star, but rather a soul-influenced adult alternative songwriter from Paisley, Scotland. Raised in a music-loving family, he grew up listening to a range of folk, opera, jazz, and his father's R&B favorites. Shortly after discovering homegrown folkies like John Martyn, the teenaged Nutini left school to focus on his own musical development, eventually moving from Paisley to London...
