Listening to the silky but sexily croaky voice coming from my stereo, I never would believe that Paolo Nutini was a young man who had not yet reached the age of 20.
This track is enough to make you tingle in all the right places. Paolo's velvety voice and the songs mellow melody reminds me of Lionel Richie and The Commodores classic, 'Easy'. It has that chilled but slightly melancholy vibe that could find itself in amongst the tearjerkers on one of those Love album collections - But don't let that put you off.
Paolo has been tipped as one of Scotland's hottest talents. With those looks and that kind of voice, he is sure to send a few girls hearts fluttering. But men should not hate because 'Last Request' is a song for seduction acting as the perfect background music for coffee back at his or hers!

The pondering Paisley acoustic weaver follows up his aching download single 'These Streets', with a relaxing ode to being yourself.
Tenderness is facilitated by releaxing percussion and the subtle guitar stroking of Mr. Nutini, himself. He shuffles alongside contemporary Ray Lamontagne to show his worldly projection that could potentially put his debut album 'These Streets (released 17/07/06) just below sunglasses on many a summer shopping list.
