    Blunt does for music, what the pea does for soup.

    I think that Blunt's first album is a decent freshman effort. Did it merit all of the attention that he received? In my opinion, no. Seeing him perform in front of huge audiences with 'You're Beautiful' was nauseating. Prejudice aside, I am really tickled by this album. It's much better than the first. Whereas the first felt very disjointed and awkward to me, this I think that Blunt's first album is a decent freshman effort. Did it merit all of the attention that he received? In my opinion, no.

Whereas the first felt very disjointed and awkward to me, this album is more solid and enjoyable. The songs are catchy and for fans who either enjoy his voice or the genre that he is in, this is a great album. I'm not a fan, and I see that many other detractors are posting 0 ratings here. Listen to the album and give the guy credit. EastSide: If that's what your friend wants to listen to, so be it. Many challenging albums are released on large record labels. Some labels treat artists well, some don't. James Blunt is excellent background, feel-good music and if that's what your friend likes, stop talking about music with her =). I'm using it to work to =) Harold G: Any actual commentary on why it's horrid? Diba: This isn't supposed to be a rock album. He's a singer / songwriter. This is comparable to Gavin DeGraw or Aqualung. Eric: I liked your review. While I might not agree with it, you expressed your own personal feelings on it. Expand

    It has some good lyrics throughout, but the singer, Blunt, doesn't seem very passionate in the way he delivers them.

  1. Here's a set that suggests rock has got its head screwed on straight again, that the path to real feelings need not necessarily be led by Norah Jones.
  2. He shows the abandon and confidence of a long-term artist, not just a one-hit wonder.

    Lost improves on the first disc at least five times over, partly because its starker focus might really take you back to...well, certainly not a club, but maybe an AM radio-equipped kid's bedroom circa 1973. [21 Sep 20007, p.80]
