I read somewhere this is supposed to be heavily influenced by hip-hop / R&B - WRONG!

THIS ALBUM COULD NOT BE FURTHER AWAY IN STYLE, SOUND, RHYTHM OR BEAT FROM EITHER HIP-HOP OR R&B - so do not let that misinformation put you off getting this. If you liked his previous album - you'll likely love this as I do.

On the second listen I can already tell this is another fantastic album from James which will 'keep on giving' for many listens to come and then to come back to like a treasured old friend in times of need.

Very laid back & relaxing with just enough tint of darkness to prevent any whiff of cheese spoiling the mood, which is deep and contemplative, comforting and gentle: S P A C I O U S !

This guy has a propensity for ORIGINALITY and quality - an excellent follow up to his debut album 'Early In The Morning' which has already become one of my 'classic albums' in my collection.

A WONDERFUL NEW TALENT!

What is going on here? The last time we heard from one of Ireland's finest James Vincent McMorrow it was on 2010's "Early in the Morning" where the Dublin troubadour had done a "Bon Iver" and retreated to a remote cottage albeit on the Irish coast to pour out his heart.. It was a very nice album not least the haunting "From the woods" but it didn't quite set him apart from a range of artists who ploughed the sensitive singer songwriter folk rock furrow, It seems that on this new album that McMorrow is determined to address this and come forward with a radically new offer to the listener which attempts to re-calibrate his music. "Post Tropical" owes greater debts to Frank Ocean, The Weeknd, James Blake and latter Justin Vernon than it does Van Morrison & Damien Rice and it is to McMorrow's credit that he has taken this bold stride. Even more laudable is the fact that it works, indeed at its best there are moments of icy beauty on this album which tug on the emotions so hard that they produce genuine warmth. The splendid striking opener "Cavalier" is a completely enchanting song with a great vocal. Certainly it does have more than a hint of James Blake but whereas the latter tends to over complicate McMorrow has produced a silky smooth soul anthem which could equally soundtrack love affairs and broken hearts. He matches it later with the pulsating "Red Dust" where he sings longingly "Sometimes my hands they don't feel like my own, I need someone to love, I need someone to hold". Again this is a kind of songwriting nearer to N.E.R.D than Neil Young but if it is of this quality who cares? Likewise the old Bon Iver influences still leach through not least on "Gold" but its very well done.Read more ›

I loved the first James Vincent McMorrow album but I just don't get the same buzz with this album. I got hold of the first one at the same time as something from the Fleet Foxes and also Ben Howard and they all seemed to compliment each other. This album doesn't seem to match up to the first one but maybe it's just me.

I absolutely loved his first album so perhaps this one could never quite live up to it but saying that, it's still really good and having seen him perform songs from it live made listening to it again after the live show feel like a new experience. This man's got talent in spades and ain't afraid to use it!

a nice departure from the first album - comparisons with James Blake are fair. But the voice is sublime, even if the tunes are a little less of a hook. 'Cavalier' is the standout track.

love this album the more I hear it. A great follow up to early in the morning same smooth falsetto tones with a more electronic sound.

Takes a bit more listening to than the first C.D. An artist Certainly to watch and if you like "Bon Iver" you'll like this
