Paolo Nutini - These Streets CD £1.99 @ Choices

19-years old at the time of this recording, Scottish singer/songwriter Paolo Nutini sounds older than his years on his debut album, These Streets. It's not just his careworn, smooth-as-sandpaper voice, either (although, admittedly, it does help). It's more to do with the maturity of the lyrics, and the casual soulfulness of his delivery. "Last Request" is more the work of a vintage Motown singer than a teenager from Paisley, and it's to Nutini's credit that he carries it off with aplomb. And rather like the soul singers of previous generations, he manages to sing without a hint of hypocrisy about his own sexual exploits ("Jenny Don't Be Hasty") while also questioning his girlfriend's fidelity ("Alloway Grove"). It's the fact that he's so frank, and even a little bit naive, that he manages to get away with it. And though the stripped-down tunes on These Streets don't always immediately grab the listener (the title track, in particular), the songs where Nutini is accompanied by a full band often manage to evoke sunny-day American soul ("New Shoes", for example). This is a strong debut, and considering Paolo Nutini's tender years, bigger things can be expected of him in the future.

This guy actually sings as if he has forgot to put his false teeth in. Listen to him and you will hear what I mean.

Is the item condition *new* ? Coincidently, Choicesuk are selling this used for £1.27 on Amazon Marketplace! Item is listed there as being a 'Catalogue return'. Mint condition but box may not be sealed.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B000FVGMC4/ref=dp_olp_used?ie=UTF8&condition=used

I bring this up, as many of the items I received after ordering from their website were clearly pre-owned!

Anyway for these reasons, I vote COLD. Pay the extra £1 and buy from Amazon (2.99).
