iTunes Editors’ Notes

Though Jamie Lidell has had an artistic metamorphosis with nearly every record his name appears on, Multiply would ultimately provide a thematic blueprint for all his work to come. Still clinging to the edgy, experimental sounds of 2000's Muddlin Gear and his work with Cristian Vogel as Super Collider, Multiply sees Lidell perfecting a jittering, funky kind of neo-soul with glimpses of dark and glitchy techno influences. Still, the title track is as blue-eyed as can be, with a chorus that would become a sing-along cadence to many of his one-man live performances. Though he'd channel even more of his Sly & The Family Stone influences on his next record, Jim, the emblematic nature of Multiply expresses Lidell at his core: funky, soulful, and just a little wilder than most.

Crazy Mad - Gorgeous Voice

This week's free download of his song "What's the Use" has inspired me to find out all I can about Jamie. What I've found a few mere hours is that this is one crazy blue eyed boy with one of the most spectacular voices I've heard in a long while! Pop music needs more voices like this, but more importantly pop music deserves creative minds like this. I hope this is a trend that keeps going and evolving from here on out. I just don't see how someone could hate a voice this pure and talent this raw. This man is what loving music is all about.

Tom Waits' little brother?

---Outstanding tracks--- A little Bit More :: nice funky simple -- reminds me of sunbleached wooden shacks on a summer day. What's the Use :: Just go and listen to it! :) What is it this Time:: ooh, a little Wilson Pickett, or Al Green drifting thru....there should be more tracks like this one, a little sharp pain and wistfulness in the voice and whoa! Game for Fools:: uh....huh! This track got it goin on. Nice vocal phrasing, again, simple background brushed cymbals, a little bass keeps the cornbread, beans and rice feelling goin' on here. ----Tracks to Dump---- Newme/The City :: Neither of these tracks sound sound as though they are as polished as they could be. Newme sounds like a freshman effort more suited to a high school student just learning how to put tracks together. The City Track just doesnt work with the hard rock edge constantly fighting with Lidell's chocolate silk voice. These two tracks sound like experiments that should have been left in the vault. Multiply :: A little Otis Redding on the dock of the bay, and some weak lyrics leave this track feeling like a knock-off Fendi bag found at a flea market for a dollar. If this song had been my first taste of this artist, I would have kept right on walking. Shame it is the title track for the whole album, cause there are waaay better tracks to groove to. :::SUMMARY::: Some of you might remember Boz Skaggs, an old member of the blue eyed soul vangard. Well, take a pinch of Boz, a little of Tom Waits, and some modern D'Angelo and keep the background rhythms and instruments simple and you've got some good music to sip a mocha latte by... (Two very weak tracks and one mediocre one keep me from giving it top marks)

Try Exponentiate

It's just that good. Multiply, in and of itself, is a knock-your-socks-back-on return to the melodics of soul that delightfully refuses to discard the raging electronic theatrics of modern music. There's a point and poetry to Lidell that makes attempted semi-soul pop rockers look the part of the fleeting 6th grade summer jam, and with an album this fine, he indeed makes fools of us all. Join the club and give this one a listen.
