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.

Great Music, Lack of Digital booklet a bit dissapointing

I love James Blake. He comes out with some amazingly crafted sounds. His use of silence is amazing (and not quite silence if you listen close enough, put on some good cans and crank up Lindisfarne I) and he truly understands how to make people feel truly uncomfortable (in a good way) through music. I was almost surprised when I was listening to We Might Feel Unsound. Flip, it actualy made me feel unsound.

Everything has been thought through and properly produced. No cut corners or rushed production here. It simply sounds amazing.

I was a bit dissapointed that this version of the album, which I would consider the "Delux Album", didn't include the Digital Booklet, but it doesn't take away from the quality of the album.

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...
