“If anything, it shrinks his already narrow proposition”. So Pitchfork described this second album from Lewis Capaldi, the chart sensation of 2019/20 in their 4/10 review. We get it – this is a repeat performance. However it is a repeat performance of a resolutely successful popular songsmith with a belting voice and another selection of catchy numbers. If you’re a critic who demands reinvention and ‘pretty new baubles’ on every release (and thus contributes to the second-album mental anxiety many artists experience and that Pitchfork describe so effectively early in their eviscerating review) then you’ll be disappointed. We’ll look forward to checking out solid pop gold this week!
