iTunes Review

James Morrison is unmistakenly a dedicated student of old-school soul. As a singer, his phrasing and dynamics bear a striking resemblance to the work of Stevie Wonder during his late ‘60s/early ‘70s heyday. On his sophomore album Songs for You, Truths for Me, Morrison applies his vocal skills to self-penned material that draws heavily upon Motown influences. The tunes here pretty much adhere to R&B conventions, albeit with enough confessions of personal angst to give things some personality. “The Only Night,” “Save Yourself,” and “Broken Strings” (the latter a duet with Nelly Furtado) accompany James’ tempered vocal anguish with vintage string and horn arrangements. Morrison radiates a positive vibe in “You Make It Real” and “Precious Love,” then recalls childhood disillusionment in “Once When I Was Little.” As U.K.-style soul revivalism, these tracks are hard to fault — though you wish Morrison would break out of character a little more often, as he does on “Love Is Hard,” a sparse acoustic tune boasting visceral lyrics sung with a minimum of affectation. Songs for You, Truths for Me is as classy as it is careful, showcasing a genuinely talented artist.

Customer Reviews

James Morrison is one of those artists that can do no wrong.

With a raspy and sensual tone to his voice, combined with thoughtful well-written songs, James Morrison can do absolutely no wrong. The stand out tracks include 'you make it real', 'please don't stop the rain' and of course, 'nothing ever hurt like you'. All three aren't examples of the only good songs on the cd, but yet the best of the best. If you weren't a fan of James Morrison's first album, I'll be honest, you probably won't like this one. Its not a huge venture out, but with Morrison's unique style, i think its safe to say, we've only seen the beginning of a big and promising career.

finally!! after 2 years... still amazing.

James Morrison is one of the best artists I have ever encountered. His soulful and raspy voice is amazing and he always has catchy songs that stay true to his unique style. I discovered him about 2 years ago when his first album came out and then saw him live at a John Mayer concert. If you can believe it, he is even better live so I hope America will finally discover James Morrison on a larger scale so that he will tour here. This newest CD is even better than the first, which I considered the best thing ever. Buy this album, you will not regret it!!

Music to my ears.

After the two year wait, this is well worth it. James came back strong. There's not a song that I don't like.

Biography

Born: August 13, 1984 in Rugby, England

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '00s, '10s

At the ripe old age of 21, James Morrison became an overnight sensation in the U.K. with the release of his debut album, 2006's Undiscovered, which wasted little time going platinum in the British Isles. Blessed with a fresh, soulful voice that alternated between smooth and rough tones (and suggested a British Stevie Wonder), Morrison recalled both the passion of classic soul music and the confessional lyrical stance of the singer/songwriters of the 1970s. Morrison was born in the West Midlands town...
