    '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.

    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]
