5.0 out of 5 stars Breathe The Difference
Compared to most other acoustic singer-songwriters, Dubliner David Kitt seems to exist in an alternative universe. Kitt once again avoids the saccharine and schmaltz of his peers on Not Fade Away while retaining the essential lush romantic fullness that has characterised his output since 2001. From the driven crispness of One Clear Day to the airy atmosphere on Up To You...

2.0 out of 5 stars Great ideas, pointless ends
Wouldn't it be great if all of a sudden a load of run of the mill solo artists decided to take a leaf out of Brendan Benson's book and join bands? David Kitt is a great case in point. No one would deny he has a good ear for melody, has an accomplished line in wry, well-observed lyrics and can do all manner of clever things with guitars. Trouble is, his voice is OK at best...

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathe The Difference, 16 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Not Fade Away (Audio CD)
Compared to most other acoustic singer-songwriters, Dubliner David Kitt seems to exist in an alternative universe. Kitt once again avoids the saccharine and schmaltz of his peers on Not Fade Away while retaining the essential lush romantic fullness that has characterised his output since 2001. From the driven crispness of One Clear Day to the airy atmosphere on Up To You through to the upbeat punch of Say No More it's an album brimming with inventiveness. Kitt's knack for creating blissed-out pop hooks and the occasional backing vocals from The Magic Numbers make Not Fade Away so refreshingly three-dimensional.

5.0 out of 5 stars Criminally underrated, 9 Dec. 2006

This review is from: Not Fade Away (Audio CD)
At the cusp of the renaissance of the singer/songwriter scene, it puzzles me how the two best remain relatively ignored: Josh Rouse & David Kitt. Perhaps they don't have the lowest common denominator appeal of whiney fakers like Blunt.

This is another fine album from the Kittser and again showcases his classic rock roots with regular bursts of electric guitar that you don't often find in this genre.

Like it's predecessors, quality control is high with not one weak song.

So buy it, enjoy it and join me in the Hate Blunt Collective!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine return to form., 12 Sept. 2006

This albums been out in ireland for a while now , and it hasnt left my cd player since. Kitts last two albums , while enjoyable , were a break from his trademark sound. If you enjoyed the big romance or have seen Kitt's live show, you'll enjoy this album.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great ideas, pointless ends, 29 Oct. 2006
This review is from: Not Fade Away (Audio CD)
Wouldn't it be great if all of a sudden a load of run of the mill solo artists decided to take a leaf out of Brendan Benson's book and join bands? David Kitt is a great case in point. No one would deny he has a good ear for melody, has an accomplished line in wry, well-observed lyrics and can do all manner of clever things with guitars. Trouble is, his voice is OK at best and is sometimes so lifeless and dull you forget whether you are actually listening to anything or just sitting by yourself looking at your mum's beige curtains again. Having said that, when he gets a couple of pals involved, (the Stoddart siblings from The Magic Numbers on `Up to You' or Lisa Hannigan on `Don't F*ck with me') all of a sudden you're wide awake again and the songs offer a vibrancy and depth he can never muster alone. So come on Dave, you know it makes sense, pick up the phone, call a couple of mates, get yourself in a band......

I just went to see David Kitt tonight in support of this album in Belfast.

He was the dogs..... I would advise buying all his albums.
