    Aside from the brilliant departure offered by the album's opener, Blunt has lost all concept of how to sound like himself. His voice is the same, but it's singing songs that don't sound like his songs.

    Shallow, soulless and strangely cynical, Some Kind of Trouble is a thoroughly depressing listen.

    This album is an attempt at a happy pop album from James Blunt which feels like he didn't really put his soul into the songs like he did withThis album is an attempt at a happy pop album from James Blunt which feels like he didn't really put his soul into the songs like he did with previous albums. The songs have less emotion. They are however still good songs and are extremely catchy. You will be humming along after the first course of most of the songs. So not a bad listen but he can do much better. Full Review »
