i kinda wish this album took more....risks? idk it's hard to care for it i guess


The whole album is essentially one giant risk, kind of a blind gamble

I never learnt to share and Wilhelm Scream are just awesome, but Lindersfarne I, II prevents me from giving this any higher rating. Too reminiscent of Bon Iver for me i guess. Glad there's a stream already, i got this like a month earlier i think.

Really? I'm calling bullshit on this one.



I had to listen up to "Limit To Your Love" to find a good song, and that's a cover. This album is mildly interesting, but it breaks no new ground, and is pretty dull overall. To Care (Like You) is a cool song, but in an objective sense isn't innovative at all.



Granted, it should probably warrant a second, third and probably fourth listen, but on first listen, this album is a waste of time.



OK, the last song is good. It doesn't make up for an entire album of dullardry. As Pitchfork says, the obvious comparison is Jamie Lidell, and James Blake comes out so, so much the worse for it. This album has nothing to say.
