Product Description

Paolo Nutini returns with a career defining new album that showcases his maverick talent and incredible vocal prowess with a maturity way beyond his 27 years.

Almost five years after the release of his classic ‘Sunny Side Up’ album, Paolo Nutini steps back in the ring with Caustic Love an album that aims straight for the heart with a heady mix of stripped down soul and cast-iron funk as exemplified by first single ‘Scream (Funk My Life Up)’.

Released April 14th on Atlantic Records, Caustic Love features highly original songs written by Paolo and largely produced by Paolo and Dani Castelar. The album was recorded in Valencia, London, Glasgow and the USA.

With Paolo Nutini you never know what to expect and this sparkling new album is no exception. He exploded onto the scene in 2006 with his pop flavoured “These Streets’ selling 1.5 million in the UK. Three years later he moved on again, with the acclaimed ‘Sunny Side Up’. Brit nominated, Ivor Novello winner, he was the biggest selling UK male artist of 2009 and 2010.

Now he’s back with a groove laden, dark & stormy musical celebration that looks set to finally establish Paolo Nutini as one of the finest songwriters and performers to emerge from the UK in recent years. Lightning strikes.

This is a truly outstanding album, well worthy of 5 stars and more. It is probably going to be the pinnacle of Paolo's career and without a doubt it's his current pinnacle.

The first track "Scream (Funk up my life)" is a great funky rocker. Catchy, tuneful and above all else a superb start to the album - it really sets the tone of what is to come.

Next up is "Let me down easy" - this is a really good soulful number and this shows that Paolo has really developed as an artist. It's a great track with lots of layers and great vocal male versus female dialogues portions.

After the first of the interludes (the only downside to this album) is the track "One Day", currently I'm struggling to get into this track. It continues the soulful layers but it slows the tempo down considerably. It seems to be popular though so it's probably just me!

Jumping forward, tracks 7 ("Better Man") and 8 ("Iron Sky") are fantastic. The former is a slow builder which tells a tale of self improvement. A really nice gentle soulful track at the right point in the album. The latter is an absolute belter, this builds and builds into a true arena stopping crescendo. Paolo's vocals are coarse, gritty and passionate. I absolutely love it!

Next is "Diana" - not sure why but I keep thinking of MJ's Dirty Diana! This doesn't bear any relation to that track though. This is another highlight for me. A really slow, catchy and soulful number, there's elements of Bill Withers and Lenny Kravitz in there. It's essentially just a love song, but it captivates and holds the listener during it's short 3 and a bit minutes.

Finally, a mention for "Looking for Something".

This is an incredible album! It's probably my favourite of the year so far and I only downloaded it yesterday. Immediate gratification!

Paolo Nutini is inspired. The album is full of variety, passion and funk. I really hope it gains the recognition it deserves.

Most definitely a 5/5.

This is a CD filled with soul and blues and feeling. It's definitely a more mature sound, more confident songwriting and a more confident vocal delivery. This is the sound of a man in his stride.

After first listening to this cd, I've looked back and can see that songs of his like "Pencil full of lead" were stepping stones to get to the sound he wanted.

Some of the songs here sound like Marvin would have snapped them up, and Otis wouldn't have said no. Kind of like a modernised/updated soul, of the '60s. Truely foot-tapping stuff. Perfect release time too - just before summer. I'd say this'll be the soundtrack to many a good night, full of alcohol sunshine and good times.

Mr Nutini has been gone from the scene for a good few years now, I'd say. However, wherever it was he went he has found soul and funk and has brought them both back in abundance.

Highly recommended CD - possibly the best of the year!

Format: Audio CD
Based on the video I saw of Iron Sky, that Adele raved about so much, I was really anticipating this new album. Gone are the relentlessly chirpy tunes of the previous album, as this is a bluesy, soul filled epic with some funky beats and heart-rending tunes.

The album cover prepares you for a grown up, heartfelt journey, and it delivers on every level. The vocals are so powerful, especially on Iron Sky, that you forget for a second that this is the same person who gave us Pencil Full Of Lead. I was blown away by the vocal performance, the excellent arrangements, and the ease with which he flicks through different styles.

Terrific album, absolutely love it!

Paolo Nutini is without a doubt one of my favourite artists on the musical scene today, yes, one of several, but I do think that the young man's a absolute genius, and possessor of an amazingly rich, emotional and soulful voice that sounds like nobody else. He sure knows how to write a good song as well, and 'Caustic Love', his third album is another masterwork.

We had to wait four years for a new collection of songs, and although last year's album still doesn't quite overtake Paolo's mainstream pop/rock debut (which remains my favourite) in my affections, the wait was certainly worth it. Whereas his excellent, mostly upbeat and cheerful second album was a variety of styles, 'Caustic Love' is a straightforward blue-eyed soul album, which the hugely talent Scot was born to make.

The album opens up with the hit single 'Scream (Funk My Life Up)', an ballsy funky rocker, and moves onto the soulful 'Let Me Down Easy', which is easily one of my favourite things that he has ever recorded. The inspiring and powerful track 'Iron Sky' gives him a chance to really show off that voice, which reminds me so much of the late soul legend Bobby Womack. Another one of my favourite songs is 'Numpty'.

Like the other two albums, both of which are of very different styles like this one is, I can't recommend 'Caustic Love' highly enough. Paolo Nutini really is something special, and you need to hear him. Top marks!

PS: I won't go into any details, but I have the say that the CD's booklet is an unusual, but very creative concept.
