iTunes Review

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.

However Much You Want Me, I Swear, I'll Make You Want Me More.

Awhile back, Paolo Nutini's "New Shoes" was the song of the week. It was a fun little mix of folk and pop, and the moment I heard it I was addicted. When I was shopping in the Princeton Record Exchange, I saw a CD in the used section from Paolo Nutini. I debated buying it, but finally gave in. I didn't listen to it until I had listened to the other CDs I had purchased. It has to be one of the best CDs I've bought in a while, easily getting to the top ten of my "Best Of 2006" mix. "Jenny Don't Be Hasty" is actually different from Paolo's style; it adds a little rock'n'roll flavor instead of the acoustic style we know Paolo Nutini for. "Last Request" has to be one of the greatest break-up songs I've heard. You can just hear in the opening chords and lyrics that this is a great song. "Million Faces" has that smooth feeling that makes for a great slow song. The electric guitar is the best part, and when Paolo hits the chorus, you see ("hear") that he has potential. "These Streets", the CD title track, is one that Paolo takes solo instead of having drums and different things in the background. It's actually a good song if you've made a move from a country to a city area. "New Shoes" is a great song to listen to when you're studying. This song is majorly addicting and it's the perfect song to cheer you up when you're upset. "Loving You" is one of the greatest love songs I've heard in my short life, and I'm going to say that it might stay that way. It's a groovy song with something to sing along to. "Alloway Grove" is an extremely fun song, and even though the lyrics are sad, the guitar seems to be happy. The lyrics, guitars, and everything about this CD shows that if Paolo keeps this up, that he'll be singing teen-pop anthems for a long time to come. It's great lyricsim shows that Paolo actually has a grip on the world instead of today's artists. Overall, Paolo shows that he deserves to be in the business, and this CD proves it.

this dude chills at my lunch table, what about yours?

I first heard of Paolo through some random clicking around on websites and when I took the time to listen to "Last Request" I was immediately blown away!! His sound is so ridiculously good its hard to believe that this guy is only nineteen! I have been blabbing away to anyone who will listen about "this guy from Scotland who sounds freaking awesome!" and he really truly is. I get really frustrated when I go looking for good music because everything out there sounds EXACTLY THE SAME, but Paolo Nutini's sound is like looking through your parent's music collection and finding something that was a pearl then and knowing its going to be classic when your kids are looking through your music collection! Puh-lease don't listen to the critics (especially the fools in Entertainment Weekly who gave his album a C-, come on!) this guy is on the verge of something huge and forewarned if you don't buy this album, hell if you don't buy one song off of this album, then your music collection will be severely lacking in the album and be cooler than your friends!

One of the best albums of the new millenium

I've had this album for a couple of months now and its absolutely amazing. This isn't any run of the mill singer songwriter who will fade into the oblivion of so many others. He is a true stand out and tracks like Autumn, Rewind, and Last Request yearn with emotion and heartache and his voice is absolutely haunting. He's 19 years old keep in mind and he has created one of the best albums of the new millenium. There is not a bad song on this album and it really grows on you. Don't let him become some background noise because he will bring you so much entertainment and excitement.

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 at age...
