    'Enough Thunder' was a bit of a letdown because it was missing that electronic edge that James Blake's previous work included. I wanted another 'Unluck' or 'The Wilhelm Scream', but it was filled with songs that I just couldn't connect with. But his voice is fantastic, which is why I'll give it a 5.

    James Blake was undoubtedly one of the most acclaimed artists of the last year. No wonder a lot of people went crazy when it had been announced that he would make a track with Bon Iver, another criticsâ

    Just another EP from an over hyped artist with fans who delude themselves in his musical pretentiousness... There's not much here if you listen to the music subjectively, as opposed to listening to it for some sort of status.

    He composes rich, intimate electronic and acoustic soundscapes that suggest myriad emotions and intriguing songwriting possibilities. As a singer, however, he's maudlin.

    The EP does have some great moments, and ironically it's when Blake drops the dubset and channels his classical piano roots.

    The silky-voiced Brit's Bon Iver-assisted EP is lush enough to be played at a swanky restaurant, but it may be even better suited to an evening alone with a hard drink. [Oct 2011, p.119]
