The Awakening (Deluxe Version)

James Morrison may be considered as one of the U.K.'s premier soul talents, but the Warwickshire singer appears to have a bit of a downer on his career of late, having recently stated that he's "sung too many love ballads," and that he hated making his last album, Songs for You, Truths for Me, after being pressured by his former Polydor label to repeat the formula of his million-selling debut. With several songs relating to his alcoholic father's death on his third effort, The Awakening, the husky-voiced guitarist appears to have rectified one of his issues, but despite the presence of Suede's Bernard Butler as producer, it's difficult to hear how he's made any attempt to deal with the other. Seemingly designed to make Radio 2 listeners hearts flutter, "I Won't Let You Go" follows the same heartfelt, acoustic, tearjerker template as his previous two lead singles; the toe-tapping Motown pastiches "Beautiful Life" and "Forever" show that Morrison's retro leanings are still very much apparent; while there's even a "Broken Strings"-style duet with Jessie J on the orchestral, midtempo "Up." Pleasantly inoffensive and lushly produced as they are, they don't exactly live up to the radical reinvention that his rather dismissive comments indicated, and it's only on the funky R&B beats and Michael Jackson-esque chorus of "Slave to the Music," and the sparse, gospel-tinged blues of "Right by Your Side," where Morrison begins to show some of the invention that was allegedly so heavily restricted on his previous effort. However, lyrically, he's never been better, with the heartbreaking themes of loss on "In My Dreams," "6 Weeks," and "Person I Should Have Been," the latter based on a poem inspired by the last conversation he had with his late father, more than fulfilling his ambitions of "wanting to go a bit deeper and find more substance." But until Morrison manages to infuse some of this raw honesty and emotion into his sound, he's always going to struggle to create that one great record that his impassioned and soulful voice deserves.

tout l'album est magnifique!! enfin UN VRAI CHANTEUR.....


ich liebe seine leicht kratzige stimme, diese melancholie in seinen songs, und die tiefe in seinen texten.
Thank you james! :)

The one

As he said, this album is actually his real first one. I loved the previous 2 but is not until this one that we get to see him as a real human being with issues, soul and sharing life. Music is pretty cool, calm but strong, strong and stormy. James dear, thnx for becoming singer, this is the kind of album I don't wanna miss out!

Im reifen Alter von 21 wurde James Morrison im Vereinigten Königreich mit der Veröffentlichung seines Debütalbums aus dem Jahr 2006 Undiscovered, das auf den britischen Inseln nicht lange für Platin brauchte, über Nacht zur Sensation. Gesegnet mit einer frischen souligen Stimme, die zwischen sanften und rauen Klangfarben wechselt, (und als britischer Stevie Wonder gehandelt) rief Morrison sowohl die Leidenschaft der klassischen Soul-Musik als auch die konfessionelle lyrische Grundhaltung der Sänger/Songschreiber...
