    I have just 'discovered' Paolo Nutini and think he is great!

    I saw him at Glastonbury on the TV and didn't actually realise he was Scottish.

    Have just purchased a double CD and looking forward to listening to it.

    He's no more than a Chris De Burgh for the 21st century. Turgid, emotionless, pop pap. IMO.

    Any of you swooning ladies care to explain exactly why you like his music? What is it that makes it good?

    (Answers of "it's nice" or "it has a good beat" will be summarily ignored. )

    Wifie, I'm not saying you shouldn't listen to what you like. I'm just asking you (and anyone else) to justify why they like it.

    What's so good about it?

    I like what he chooses to sing - I like the solitary geetar sometimes - I like his voice (although the lisp is kinda worryin me).

    I myself am a fan of the solo acoustic guitar backing. Nothing against it if it's done well.

    You say you like his voice. Why do you like it?

    Everybody has different opinions.. Some things are best left unsaid...

    I like him. Hes a fab singer, got great tunes and some good lyrics goin on!

    Was one of his songs "Caledonia" that was played at one of my close friends funeral. Think its one of his best ones!

    Hell, maybe! I just am very analytical when it comes to music. I analyse the stuff I listen to and can justify to anyone why I like a particular piece of music.

    Maybe I'm just a music geek, but I just can't understand people who say they like a certain song, but can't tell me why.

    Not a big fan of his voice to be honest - it does nothing for me and I don't get the 'feeling' that you seem to. His songwriting seems to lack musical tension, as well as being slightly on the introverted side. Maybe that's his style but if it is, he'll not last the test of time.

    Not fussed about the lisp, though it does add some individuality. Certainly not in the same way as Alison Krauss' lisp does though...

    Again, justify why you think Chris De Burgh/Paolo Nutini isn't wishy-washy pop pap? Come on, analyse it, think about it, ask yourself why you like it!
