Being a fan of Smashing Pumpkins, I got this album not really knowing what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised!

Iha has certainly shown his ability as a songwriter - every track on the CD is beautifully crafted, with gorgeous, sunny melodies and bittersweet lyrics. It's poppy, but not mainstream; sweet, but not twee; and overall filled with a beauty and sense of longing that's evocative of hot summer afternoons and intense young love. It has great replay potential, and since ripping it to my mp3 player I have listened to it numerous times a week.

Personally the only criticism I have is that there is very little variation - and whilst I could cite the old adage 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it', it would actually be nice to see James branch out a bit. Isn't that what second albums are for?! I'm certainly hoping for one.

Whilst I would actually recommend that SP fans don't buy this without hearing it first (it is very different and it's not guaranteed to be to your taste!), what I would recommend is giving it a listen, whether just to the samples on here or to a friend's copy. It is *definitely* worth it.

"Let it Come Down" is an album which generated such an apathetic and "It's OK, I guess..." response at its time of release that twelve months later it barely warranted a mention in end-of-year charts. Yet it's such a wonderfully crafted album that it's hard to imagine critics were listening to the same CD. A lifetime away from much of the Pumpkins' dark rock, Iha has made what's pretty much an alternative-country/americana album. Working with the likes of Neal Casal and Adam from Fountains of Wayne, the songs have strong melodies complimenting Iha's delicate vocals and dreamy backdrops of acoustic guitars and mainly unplugged instrumentation. The single "Be Strong Now" is a great introduction, but it just gets better and climaxes with "No-One's Going to Hurt You," the best song the Smashing Pumpkins never wrote.

I've had this album for a while now and lately been googling Pumpkins and James so i thought i would write in and say how much i love his debut. If you're looking for anything dark, heavy and alternative like SP then you might be disappointed as i was when i first heard it. Even James himself said he couldn't out rock the great Pumpkins so with the help of Fountains Of Wayne he grabbed his acoustic guitar and wrote something much simpler and honest which is what this album is. James has put together a beautiful heartfelt collection of love songs that literally tug at the heartstrings and eventually i swear, (if you have a heart), you will have tears running down your cheeks such is the fragile and naked beauty thats on here. Opener Be Strong Now invites you in on a pleasant strum before the band kicks in. Sound of Love is gentle and serene as James shows us he can really sing and play. Beauty has simple but effective lines that stay in your head forever. Sure some of it is a bit introspective and sentimental (stopping just short of twee) and romantic (weren't Pumpkins??) dealing with love and loss and hope. At times i wish he would stamp on the drive pedal and bring the noise so to speak. Then my fave moment arrives in Silver String and i am beside myself stunned at his heartache and passion nicely orchestrated in all the right places; in a word, beautiful! D'arcy also guests on vocals on One And Two and closer No One's Gonna Hurt You is another stone cold gem that brings a lump to your throat. Mr Iha has certainly proved here that he can write and play dispelling any harsh words from Corgan about his lack of effort on SP albums.

Shying away from the Smashing Pumpkins to work on a solo effort, James really came up with the goods here!!
With a more mellow approach than the Pumkins, this record is full of gorgeous ballads and every single one have great lyrics not to mention beautiful melodies.
From the very opening of Be Strong Now to No Ones gonna hurt you, this really is a fantastic record!
If you aren't sure listen to Pumpkins B-sides such as ...said sadly and Believe and you get the general idea!
A must buy in my opinion!!!!
