BBC Review

Billed on his MySpace page as a cross between Jeff Buckley and Stevie Wonder, one listen to Jamie Scott & The Town soon perks your ears up to the fact that you are actually listening to the warbling love child of James Morrison and James Blunt. Now really, how many singer-songwriters called James is there room for in our musical consciences?

Granted, Jamie is talented and self-taught. By the age of nine he could play the piano, guitar and was penning his own songs on the back of Frostie packets, but when it comes to his songs, they're like a pair of brand new trainers, just too white. They need stamping on by your mates to make them look worn, feel part of you and tell a story.

Forthcoming single, 'When Will I see Your Face Again', is a romantic if not formulaic ditty, all soaring violins and Coldplay inspired keys with a bit of Jamiroquai skitting to polish it off. It's only on more folky inspired, 'London Town' we hear something different. Rippling piano, organ and rousing cello's bestow a Paul Simon-esque essence. However, Scott's voice gets drowned by over-produced backing and misplaced electric guitar which distracts from the sincerity. Scott has yet to define his own style. This is nowhere more obvious than in 'Rise Up', as Scott contemplates: 'you think you're not beautiful/ but you're so beautiful!' I can hear Blunty on the phone to his lawyers as I type.

Jamie Scott & The Town are at their best when the tracks are stripped down to basics, exposing his purity of enunciation and genuinely beautiful voice. You just can't help thinking he'd sound much more rootsy and soul-inspired if he'd downed a bottle of JD, washed it back with some gravel and got in a fight with Morrison and Blunt. Now that I'd like to hear. --Sonja D'Cruze

I kept hearing Wogan playing his single When Will I See Your Face Again and felt the need to get this CD as soon as it is released. The album is easy listening, almost melancholic with lots of acoustic guitar and piano at the background. It is definitely a class of its own with pretty genuine tunes and certainly a lot of credit is given to this talent for such a superb album. I have never heard his stuff before but I understood it's quite different from his previous ones. Somehow he reminds me of a more cheerful Beth Orton.

Get this, close your eyes and enjoy.

Jamie Scott has the most beautiful voice and his songs are amazing! thats a FACT! i downloaded some of his solo tunes a couple of years ago and have listened to them pretty much non-stop since then! so this album is like a gift of pure joy! his earlier stuff was, in my opinion, more RnB/Soul...now its guitar driven acoustic greatness. i'm listening to the album right now and its so great, i think everyone who like James Blunt or James Morrison should buy Park Bench Theories as soon as they humanly can!

This album has all that a great piece of music needs. Jamie's songs are heartfelt, melodic and uplifting. His voice has a beautiful tembre and combining it with the jazzy/bluesy feel in some songs like a "Love song to remember" provides a knockout performance and as a rsult a solid 'must have' album.

Also having seen him sing live I have to mention that a live performance by Jamie surpasses the recording by at least a factor of 10.

If you like Ray Lamontagne like me, you may find this a bit tame in comparison.He has a pleasant voice and a talent to write a pleasant song. Try Stephen fretwell and Tom Mcrae if you like this album.

with his briilaint smooth as honey voice he's a breath of fresh air. Not often a voice makes me sit up and take notice on the very forst listen, but, his certainly did. I bought his album and listened to it straight away, I couldn't wait. My park bench Theory is that young /jamie is going to be one of the brightest young stars of this year. with his honey voice and face to match . Great album!

BRILLIANT ! Jamie is a little known artist who (in my opinion) should have done a lot more music and should be recognised for his true brilliance.

Go buy it buy it buy it if your kind of music is the likes of Paulo Nutini, James Taylor, James Blunt or Morrison...... You'll luv Jamie Scott

My partner Rita introduced me to Jamie Scott "Now I would like to introduce YOU"!

There's not a lot else to be said really. I first heard the track Standing In The Rain at my hairdressers and loved it so looked for the CD. From the first play it is amazing and gets better the more you listen to it. Do not even compare this to James Blunt, Jamie is by far the better of the two, more original, entertaining, the depth is amazing. Can't wait for more.

Took a chance on buying this album...after hearing his rendition of Bleeding love on YouTube.
I have to say that I've listened to the album a few times now and I think it's great! Just love his soulful voice, and the mellow tunes.
I've heard him be compared to James Blunt...but I actually think Jamie Scott is better!
So was it worth buying this album...definetely!
