I know Summer of '69 isn't as bad as 1985, but it was either that or Prince's 1999, and I just couldn't bring myself to say the other.

No matter how bad an artist james blunt is (and that voice is just.. so unlistenable! Not to mention the yes the lyrics are incomparitavly vague.), i'm glad you avoided the usual cheap shots directed at him. I think any other review sorely tempted for some shameless bashing should take stock that there's a reason the public laps up songs like 1973, not necissarially because it's good but because it has listenable aspects. Likable melodies, not great, but easy on the ear. Sure it's capital fm fodder but then again it sells.

Con-artists like James Blunt do deserve bashing but readers need to know why his music on the whole is sub-par and i reackon you did a good job in explaining why his songs sucked. Good job!

"Divine Hatred" sounds like the most awesome power metal band ever.

I can't believe you reviewed this (seeing how your more into metal). I hear that beautiful song at work at least 3 times a day and I want to shoot myself. Well written review, can't say I will ever give him the time of day.

AMG gave this a 3.5. =/ Although I admittedly haven't heard anything off this album, nor am I in a hurry to do so.

So you take pride in the fact James Blunt doesn't chart in the US. Guess there's no room what with all the brilliant stuff from Kelly Clarkson and Lady GaGa.

After your review - if that biased dribble can be called such - which seems to focus on James Blunt's inability to satisfy your standards of what can be reasonable considered lyrics, he'll just have to try and work more meaning in there.

Perhaps Lady GaGa can help:

Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah

I wanna hold 'em like they do in Texas please
Fold 'em let 'em hit me raise it baby stay with me (I love it)
Luck and intuition play the cards with Spades to start
And after he's been hooked I'll play the one that's on his heart

Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh
I'll get him hot, show him what I've got
Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh,
I'll get him hot, show him what I've got


I think I'll stick with that no-talent multi-instrument-playing singer-song writer from the UK

he can definitely sing and this album is not as bad as the review says, but it's not a 4 either.. and just because he's better than some talentless commercial pop act doesn't make him good.
