    Some strange reviews from the critics? I found this album very interesting which got better with each listen. It sounds like Mr Nutini is maturing into an excellent songwriter, and I for one really rate the songs on this album. From the opening happy go lucky 10/10 to the beatiful love songs of Growing Up Beside You & Candy, your be very plesantly surprised at this album, if like me you Some strange reviews from the critics?

    All passable fare. [Jul 2009, p.92]
  2. This one leaves its generational competition in the dust and is wise beyond this songwriter's years, and to be frank, leaves his own previous identity as simply a bedroom balladeer to history.
  3. At times, there's a lack of consistency with too many ideas thrown onto the table, but it's that diversity heard throughout Nutini's sophomore effort that gives this AC singer/songwriter a leg up.
