The Independent

It’s not the most adventurous album, sure, but Divinely Uninspired is more about unveiling the rough materials Capaldi has to work with. And as Adele has already proven, that’s essential if you want to carve out a long-term career. Uninspired, maybe. Untalented? Certainly not.

The Guardian
Singing dolorous ballads in a style that makes Adele look stoic takes some doing, but Capaldi’s honesty is appealing

NME
It’s somewhat baffling that such a charismatic star could make a record so lacking in personality, though his fans won’t mind one bit.

The obvious comparison for this Scottish singer-songwriter is Ed Sheeran. So how does he stand up? He certainly has a better voice that said Brit. Far more songwriting talent as well. Still, this isn't going to exactly go down in history. A bit of a shame that Capaldi's charm cannot leak into some of his songs.

Best Track: Someone You Loved

What make's this album more compelling which Tom Walker tried to attempt (and failed) early this year, is how well-engineered Capaldi's album is.
I don't think it's as good as Tom Grennan's debut album last year, but this is a solid debut album that NME undeservedly shunned. Give Lewis a chance, he's definitely got potential.

Alternating between piano and guitar based ballads, this debut from the Scottish import shows promise although it gets maudlin and familiar at times. Admirable vocals and pop presence found here.
