The Colour in Anything ranked

Definite AOTY contender with a handful of throwaway tracks.

Meet You in the Maze. 5 minutes of a cappella auto-tune with no discernible melody. The album sputters out because of this track.
16James Blake

Waves Know Shores. In my humble opinion, his ballads are the weak points of this album, and this is the least interesting one.
15James Blake
The Colour in Anything

Two Men Down. Let's be honest, this was an experiment. A failed experiment.
14James Blake

The Colour in Anything. Another ballad, slightly more interesting than Waves Know Shores, still nothing to write home about.
13James Blake
The Colour in Anything

Always. An interesting track, nothing particularly wrong with it, just not too memorable.

Points. Anthony Fantano's assessment that this is James Blake's worst ever track is obviously way off base. Great, trippy production with an immersive atmosphere.
11James Blake

f.o.r.e.v.e.r. Unquestionably the best ballad on the album and the only one I think is genuinely good.

Love Me in Whatever Way. Heartbreaking lyrics, one of the most emotional songs here.
9James Blake

Noise Above Our Heads. Great beat, catchy chorus.

I Hope My Life. An experiment just like Two Men Down, only this one actually succeeds. The synths are a bit of a shock at first, but the track develops nicely and the repetitive ending works well.
7James Blake

I Need a Forest Fire. Not much to say here. Fantastic track, great singing, amazing production. Just a great head-nodder.
6James Blake
The Colour in Anything

Radio Silence. Amazing opener. Incredibly immersive production and the transition at 2:39 is absolutely sublime. That synth that repeats over the top is very reminiscent of James Holden's incredible remix of The Sky Was Pink.
5James Blake
The Colour in Anything

Choose Me. The track is very repetitive but it's pure ear candy. Love the constant key changes in the melody.
4James Blake
The Colour in Anything

Put That Away and Talk to Me. Yet another experiment by James, and what an incredible track this is. The music-box melody is heavenly, the beat is crisp, the samples are excellent and the vocals are just the icing on the cake. Phenomenal.
3James Blake
The Colour in Anything

My Willing Heart. I considered all three of these next tracks for the Number 1 spot. Just a very emotionally stirring track. 2:40 is pure heaven. Props to Frank Ocean for the production guest spot.
2James Blake
The Colour in Anything

Timeless. I didn't initially think this one would be this high, but it's pretty much perfect. The opening beat is just unreal and the wobbly synth melody he introduces at 1:49 is beautiful. The vocals are the only brief source of light amidst the otherwise dark and moody melody. Probably the closest thing to a hip hop track here and it's a banger. Really happy Kanye's verse didn't materialize.
1James Blake
The Colour in Anything

Modern Soul. A fucking masterpiece. It took a few listens for this one to sink in, but this is obviously a career highlight for James. Absolutely perfect production, lyrics and singing. The track develops steadily but sublimely, and if 2:37 doesn't give you goosebumps, then damn. This should have been the closing track.
