AMY MACDONALD: A CURIOUS THING
**
VERTIGO, £13.99
LIKE fellow Scotpop achiever Paolo Nutini, Amy MacDonald is an old soul on young shoulders. But where he attracts all ages with his mischievous appropriation of vintage sounds, MacDonald's simple mid-paced rootsy pop rockers appeal more to the Deacon Blue and Texas fans of the world. Although her feisty recent single Don't Tell Me That It's Over threatened to push things forward, she actually seems to take a step backwards on her second album with an anachronistic 1980s sound and predictable lyrics about the pressures of fame (An Ordinary Life), the perils of hype (Next Big Thing) and the culture of image-over-talent (This Pretty Face).
