iTunes Review

Energy prickles through this debut of intent from the London electronic producer and singer/songwriter. Graduating from his dubstep origins, this spare, sensational album mines uniquely low-fi, synth-laden electronic R&B. The dark poetry of his lyrics and stripped back, oboe-like vocal weave magic throughout, notably on the funereal groove of "The Wilhelm Scream" and raw blues piano of yearning Feist cover "Limit to Your Love". Blake's technical trickery—all glitchy future blues ("Why Don't You Call Me", "To Care (Like You)") and spartan vocoder ("Lindisfarne I")—inspired a quiet revolution, with Kanye West, Justin Vernon and Beyoncé all confessed Blake apostles.

Customer Reviews

Brilliant album, why criticise?

I really like this album and the extra EP, here is original experimental music. I don't think it's right for people to heavily criticise this because it isn't their style of music. It's not always about making something instantly likeable, this music shows a struggle between harmony dissonance, an interesting exploration of form and structure. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who actually gives their music a chance to grow on them rather than slagging it off because they don't instantly see the appeal, it's a great album!

Good but slightly unnecessary

I thought James Blakes original debut was pretty good, but definitely did not live up to the hype. This addition to his album doesn't seem like it adds much to it. Like i said it just seems unnecessary. All the new songs seem less bassy and have more prominent vocals. Not a huge fan but it'll do until he brings out a new album or Ep's. And no matter what i do i can't find myself ever liking his Bon iver collaboration.

I am a fan

This is gorgeous. His vocal quality is tear jerking. I adore the new piano based stuff as much as I loved the sub bassed electronica. What an album, what a man.

Influenced by the likes of D'Angelo and Stevie Wonder along with Burial and Mount Kimbie, London-based producer, singer, and songwriter James Blake first gave the world a taste of his quirky, R&B-sampling strain of dubstep in 2009 when his Air & Lack Thereof 12" appeared on the Hemlock label. Blake received quite the endorsement when the heralded Soul Jazz label picked the track up for their Steppas' Delight 2 compilation that same year. Blake raised his profile every few months during 2010 -- something...
