Saw without teeth


TRENDY young folk singer David Saw's new CD Broken Down Figure is unlikely to cut it in many end-of-year best-ofs.
Because nice as it is, there's nothing here that's likely to make a lasting impression.
The album is mostly sub-Damien Rice, particularly opening salvo Don't Call, Simple Song and title track Broken Down Figure, and when it does pick up on single Buy My Record, it merely heads down an even more regularly trodden path.
So although there's not a lot you can directly say is wrong with this album, David Saw's lack of a cutting edge really lets it down.
