LEWIS CAPALDI // “Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent” – ALBUM REVIEW

Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent is the highly anticipated debut album from Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi. The album dropped today. It features the viral sensation “Bruises” and the mega hit “Someone You Love”.

The album opens with full force on “Grace“. This track is the perfect opener and introduction for the record. The mid-tempo pop-rock track shows off Lewis’ vocals with just a bit of rasp and lets the listener know that this album is one of heartbreak, love, loss, anxiety … All of the feelings that are tough to sit in. “Bruises” is a melodic piano driven ballad. That allows for Lewis’ vocals to be front and center. The ticking clocks usher in “Hold Me While You Wait” which is his current single and focuses on the anxieties of being in limbo in a relationship. The softness and beauty highlighted in the piano and melody on “Someone You Loved” set against the fraught vocal achieves it desired effect. The album picks up the pace again on “Maybe” and “Lost On You” with Lewis changing up his vocal delivery somewhat and electric guitar being the focus on these songs. “Forever” takes inspiration from Doo-Wop elements and is one of the highlights from the record for me. “One” and “Hollywood” falter a bit, being sleepy amongst the other gems on this record. Although Lewis gets back on track with “Don’t Get Me Wrong” and “Fade“, the two most soulful and R&B inspired tracks on the album. The vocals on both matching that style as well. “Headspace” is the perfect close out song encapsulating the sound, feel, and vibe of what is “Devinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent.
