Lewis Capaladi’s album “Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent” portrays amazing vocal ability and emotion. He is a twenty three year old Scottish singer and songwriter who is most known for his hit song “Someone you Loved”.


 Capaldi constructed the album with such elegance and beauty that seems so absent in popular music recently. His album stays true to the basis of music, real instruments and real, emotional vocals. Capaldi sure did make an album that stands out from the rest. Most albums have only one really gorgeous song that makes you want to cry, but he accomplished twelve all at once. 


 He plays with the lyrics and strategically places key changes that seem almost impossible 

for any other artist to mimic. Most music that we hear on the radio sung by men sing an over sexualized version of love and heartbreak, but Capaldi stays true to the pain he feels. 


The album truly is beautiful, but some people could consider it depressing due to the fact that he talks about feelings of loneliness and depression. He surely doesn’t shy away from being completely honest with what he went through, letting other people be able to relate with him.  


I personally tend to lean towards music that have real feelings tied to them. My favorite song has to be either “Forever” or “Hold Me While You Wait”. “Forever” was put together so divinely, his falsetto is gorgeous, and the brilliance of the bridge is astonishing. “Hold Me While You Wait” shows off a beautiful, soft verse and then a powerful and soulful chorus that portrays astonishing vocal ability. 


Overall, this album gets a five star review from me because this album stands out from others, stays true to itself, and shows true emotion.
