Square 1 is the third album from Irish songwriter, David Kitt, and much has been made of the fact that this is an album made by a man who has fallen deeply in love. Whilst both of Kitt's previous albums have undoubtedly held a mellow quality, you simply can't avoid it in Square 1. This quality is generated by the warmth of his voice and the obvious care taken in his songwriting. Kitt has always been been respected as a proper.

David Kitt's 2001 album purported to be 'The Big Romance' but 'Square 1' eclipses that LP in the heart-on-sleeve, head-over-heels, unabashed celebration of love stakes. It also signals a move away from 'The Big Romance's over-polished preoccupation with electronica as Kitt travels a more soulful road here, complete with Curtis Mayfield's sound desk and Cajun swamp-pop group Lil' Band O' Gold.

David Kitt (born 1975 in Dublin, Ireland) is an Irish musician. He has released six studio albums to date: Small Moments, The Big Romance, Square 1, The Black and Red Notebook, Not Fade Away and The Nightsaver. He is the son of former Irish politician Tom Kitt. Kitt grew up surrounded by music, as his father and uncles formed a successful touring folk group when he was young.

Kitt is one of Ireland's top practitioners of mass-appeal melancholia, his two previous albums having established him there as the local answer to David Gray (this CD, released last year, spent three weeks at the top of the Irish chart). Tonic and Long, Long Stares, both cool and rocky, are the only moments that shake the album out of its torpor. The rest, carried by Kitt's toffee-flavoured croon and ambling pedal-steel guitar, proves that, while love may be many-splendoured, it hasn't done much for his writing.

Pity poor David Kitt, then. He's deliriously in love. Surely Square 1 will be a soppy, sickly disaster? Not at all. The lo-fi folkster delivers an album that even the jaded and cynical can enjoy. Perhaps it's because he captures the fear as well as the ecstasy ("There's so much here to lose"); perhaps it's the constant supply of sing-along melodies; perhaps it's the sheer listenability of his voice.
