EDITORS’ NOTES

Paolo Nutini’s voice is a wondrous instrument, a soulful set of Scottish pipes with a devastating grain—as capable of expressing deep spiritual yearning (“Last Request”) as giddy happiness (“New Shoes”) or amorous begging (“Jenny Don’t Be Hasty”). On this debut album, his attention has been diverted by the breakup of a long-term relationship, so the songs tend toward slow, mournful meditations on love and the unpleasant aftermath (“Rewind,” “White Lies”), all delivered with deep hurt in that Al Green-ish purr.
