Paolo Nutini - Rewind
Here's a thing - since its release back in July, the debut album from Paolo Nutini has not once dropped outside of the UK Top 20 album chart. Since it debuted at number three, it has now gone platinum. Quite what is fuelling this thirst for Scottish solo teenagers among the British record buying public remains a mystery, but such is their passion for this young, husky voiced songwriter that his winter tour has already sold out, taking in some impressively large venues.
Latest single Rewind is very much more of the same, following a similar vein to Last Request, full of little bursts of orchestration and a strummed acoustic providing the backbone to a song that will be far more at home on Radio 2 than anywhere else. Its a little bit dull, with very little substance, and will undoubtedly keep those albums flying off the shelves in record shops up and down the country.
