Paolo Nutini brings a career defining album with Caustic Love that showcases his maverick talent and incredible vocal prowess with a maturity way beyond his years.
Almost five years after the release of his classic Sunny Side Up album, Paolo Nutini stepped 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 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.
This is a groove laden, dark & stormy musical celebration that looked set to establish Paolo Nutini as one of the finest songwriters and performers to emerge from the UK in recent years. Lightning strikes.
Top Customer Reviews
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".Read more ›
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.
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!
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!
Took couple of run through to convince me I liked because of the different style - but now I love it
