  1. 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]
  2. He shows the abandon and confidence of a long-term artist, not just a one-hit wonder.
  3. It will seduce anybody already won over by his 2005 debut, "Back to Bedlam," since it's a tighter, more assured record than that. But chances are, they were seduced by Blunt already.
  4. James Blunt returns with All the Lost Souls, a more piano-driven period piece that's about as edgy as an episode of "Desperate Housewives."
  5. He's only gone and come back. And improved, actually: we counted two more hits than "Back To Bedlam." Be very afraid.
  6. 40
    The drawback, as ever, is Blunt’s warbly, whining, strangled voice, which sounds increasingly like a bad Weird Al Yankovic parody.
  7. It's more of the same on his second album, a collection so bland, it makes hardtack seem sumptuous.

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