James Blake - James Blake

Release Date:  02/07/11
Genre: Minimal, Ambient, Dubstep


Vocally it reminds me of Antony Hegarty and Bon Iver (autotuned), but musically, I'm not sure what this is.  There's no doubt that this album is different from what I'm used to.  I love melodies and this album is lacking clear ones. I did enjoy the first half of the album a lot more.  Like a lot more.  The second half had too much singing with sparse music. Still, interesting textures used here and a lot of understated sounds.

Favorite Songs: I Never Learnt to Share, Lindesfarne II, Limit To Your Love
Rating: 8.1/10
