5.0 out of 5 stars Pointless Nostalgic, 15 Oct 2002
This review is from: Pointless Nostalgic (Audio CD)
This album is extremely versatile and highlights Culums vocal talents. In particular the cover of Radioheads 'High and Dry' which has a sweet and soulful touch in contrast to 'It ain't necessarily so' which for me is just waiting to be pumped up for a live performance.
I am more of a fan of the original songs and feel 'Pointless Nostalgic' is one of the most beautiful ballads I have heard over the last year (comparing Cullum to the expertise of Ryan Adams, Coldplay etc.) This is the direction I am hoping Cullum will take, developing his own style which I'm sure will broaden his appeal. I have played the c.d to friends who despise Jazz/Swing and all have found something in the album which they can enjoy.
If artists such as Geoff Gascoigne and Ben Castle are happy to share a stage with this artist then surely a successful future beckons. The next album is crucial, if the same feeling I get from listening to 'Pointless Nostalgic' can be recreated in future songs then he deserves everything he is rewarded with, the lifestyle, the money, the girls etc.
The talent of Jamie Cullum can only be totally recognised if you are to witness his performance live, so keep checking the website and go and watch wherever and whenever you can.
