it's just like judging music, as it is also art. for people like me who are into graphic design and the like, yeah it's important. I mean obviously it won't change how I feel about the music, though it is really nice to see an aesthetically pleasing album cover.

the thing with album art to me is it gives you an image to put in your head while you listen. it sets the mood. its always in the back of my mind either consciously or subconsciously and its just part of the whole package. art shouldnt affect the music but on some small level it can very slightly add or detract to the experience for me. because its all art in the end.

Lots of artist name-dropping, genre-flaunting and condescension instead of actual analysis




sounds like pitchfork in general. Was interesting reading it after this review, the RZA rap seems very polaristic.

does anyone else feel like the video for Retrograde was influenced by Melancholia?

James Blake's most positive attribute seems to be his ability to inspire overblown and overly poetic album reviews.

With the f**ing dear and the forest? [laughs] yeah it isn’t the album cover; we put that up more for a laugh really! I quite liked it. But when it came to choose the album cover I thought I looked a bit silly! I liked the picture, the animals and the farthing woods. But I didn’t wanna use it as the album cover, the album will be the Retrograde’s artwork only with me standing in the snow, it’s a much better picture.

Album is still growing on me. Didn't pull me in like his first album did upon first listen. The RZA collaboration is pretty bad though. Easily the worst song off the album.
