This release by Candid is more than a little odd. It is odd because 7 out of the 10 recordings on this album also featured on Jamie Cullum's first album Pointless Nostalgic (another Candid release).
In the shuffle six tracks have been dropped (You And The Night And The Music, You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You, Pointless Nostalgic, High And Dry, A Time For Love and I Want To Be A Popstar) and have been replaced with just three new tracks (God Only Knows, Love Won't Let Me Wait and Small Day Tomorrow).
Not only do the new tracks stylistically mismatch, but they are also not as good as the tracks they replaced. Even worse, two of the dropped tracks (Pointless Nostalgic and High And Dry) were among the best on his first album.
Simply put, if you don't have Pointless Nostalgic, then buy this instead of Devil May Care. If you do own Pointless Nostalgic, then don't bother with Devil May Care as most of the tracks are the same.
