4.5 superbRoundOnEndHiInMiddle | October 24th 16

I don't know why, but Enough Thunder hits me right in the feels every single time. Objectively, his self-titled or The Colour In Anything is his best work, but there's just something about this one. It does what Klavierwerke did in its very minimal, autotune-as-an-instrument approach, but about ninety times better. The piano ballad tracks he does here are absolutely phenomenal as well. His cover of Joni Mitchell's "A Case Of You", which is definitely one of the better covers I've ever heard, makes me tear up almost every time I hear it. Every song here is fantastic in its own way, though, and though this is probably his most sparse work, it's also the most evocative and personal to this point in his career. I don't know if he'll ever release something like this again, but a man can dream.

I could drink a case of this. And still be on my feet.

Not as good as the album. A few great songs and some filler tracks

The one thing about James Blake is that he loves to say the most through silence; minimalism is at the forefront of his most recent music, as we saw with the track Lindesfarne on his debut album earlier this year. This new EP does little to change that. The piano is still his vessel, and its parts seem more appropriate and logical. However, Blake certainly still has missteps. He certainly has his own style, but it?s still one to be manipulated and improved. But in the more enjoyable tracks on the EP, something tells me that Blake is on the verge of something spectacular.

A further venture into his piano ballad-y side with a more tamed future garage sound. A
pleasant listen, but can just seem like another art-pop artist at times. He needs to delve
deeper into his CMYK and Klavierwerke days and bring back that. Though keep the vocals like
on his ST because those are gorgeous.
